A break in transmission to acknowledge a force in Australian political literary life. Bob Ellis, has finally died, I do not say this glibly, he has been dying for years, but dug in for another couple of months to be a thorn in the side of that old adversary Bronnie Bishop.

The sight of the rumbled, mumbling Bob hovering on the edges of the press pack during election campaigns will be missed, his observations even more so.

I fear will not see your like again Bob.
