1. In case you think the name sounds familiar, American actor Richard Dreyfuss is famous for his roles in Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Down and Out in Beverly Hills. Federal Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus (no relation, only one s) is not — even though those movies sound like his week. The Academy Award for worst press conference performance by an Australian politician goes to … you guessed it, Mark Dreyfus. No Mr Attorney-General, it was not an absurd question. 2. I’ll give him this, he doesn’t need to apologise for upholding the law — but what about upholding the laws of common sense? Does he seriously think the Australian people are OK with four former immigration detainees now having allegedly reoffended since their release? One man was charged with two counts of assault and the others with stealing, breaching reporting obligations and possessing a drug. Let me help the Attorney-General out — no, the Australian public is not OK with that. 3. Pic of the week: Cameron Bancroft glancing down at the PM’s phone in the middle of the team photo shoot for the Prime Minister’s XI. What did it say Bangers? 4. This page, Wednesday’s The West, Josh Zimmerman’s column: runner-up for pic of the week. What an interesting shot of Premier Cook. 5. If you’re not a medical expert how on earth would you know if “a change in capacity” at Fiona Stanley Hospital is a valid reason for a patient who has been flown up from Esperance to get turned around and sent on another flight to Bunbury Hospital? You wouldn’t. But it doesn’t sound right, does it? Apparently emergency care is “unpredictable by nature” and “constantly changing”. OK. 6. Protest all you like in Australia. But do it peacefully and lawfully. Not 140m off the ground where you put yourself, the public and the authorities who have to come and get you at risk. Morons. 7. If you think the city’s buzzing, you’re absolutely right. Our people numbers were up 10 per cent year on year for October and we recorded a 6 per cent rise for November, with just short of a million people passing through the retail core. And judging by the first week figures for December, the city is on track for the biggest Christmas/summer period in 10 years. 8. I know she’s had an incredible 12 months but I’m not sure TIME Magazine has got it right with their choice of Taylor Swift as 2023 Person of the Year. And how can you win that sort of award in a year when you announce you’re not coming to Perth! 9. Kings Park, King Street, Charles Street and the Charles Hotel — just some of the places I’d like King Charles to visit if he makes it to Perth next year. 10. Feared as a fast bowler and feared as a columnist. You’ve got to hand it to Mitch Johnson. Unlike lots of former players who get paid for their thoughts post-career, Johnson comes off the long run and doesn’t miss.
