PETER GARRETT: THE PERTURBED POLITICIAN

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on February 17, 2010

Peter Garrett, the Federal Environment Minister,  and former Midnight Oil lead-singer,  is as uncomfortable a

politician as I have ever seen.

In interviews, it is as if he is frustrated and struggling with something entirely different to the mostly

banal questions.

 I suspect Garrett is a decent man:  principled, determined, passionate, honest,  compassionate.

 I suspect Garrett  struggles with the hypocrisy, deceit, and absurd compromises, that is politics and being a

politician, and I suspect he can do much more good in the world than as a politician.

When Peter Garrett is the consummate politician I know the dark side has won.
