Eulogising Jim Bacon

Are Albert Langer, Michael Hyde and Kerry Miller taking the piss here?

Jim Bacon was not just a student activist at Monash University.

Who cares how Left he once was? The plain fact is that, as premier of Tasmania, he was content to let Paul Lennon and the logging industry run the state for him.

So being a weaselly environmental vandal passes for being Left these days? About the only connection I can see is that had the Chinese subamarine (you know, the Harold Holt one) carted Jim Bacon off before the lung cancer did, he would have flourished as a party functionary back in the motherland - they're big on dams'n'logging over there, I hear.
