Thucydides Has Never Heard of You, Either

“Wasn’t it a strange feeling when Tony copped it right in the bicamerals and Malcolm took over. What a surreal onion-eating Prime Minister he was. Three years ago, if you pitched the story of his short, brutal reign to a publisher, they would have laughed gleefully and defenestrated you, and rightly so. Impossible! Yet all too true. We live in strange times.”
