did CNN smuggle cameras into Australian Parliament ?
more flack from the Bush visit to Australia :

The Seargent in Arms is investigating who smuggled cameras into the Parliament to record George Bush's speech and filmed the Greens senators reproach to the man who "just loves free speech".
Only the official set cameras were allowed into the Chamber of Reps and they are angled to show MPs in their best light ( ie; no comb-overs, bald patches etc). But CNN had film of the Greens Senator Bob Brown's outburst which means the 650 staff with George Bush, 3 fighter jets and 20 helicopters, 2000 army and 1000 policemen in Canberra that day meant nothing..a bomb could have easily been smuggled into the parliament.

##Crocodile man Steve Irwin is being roundly criticised for his endless interviews praising George Bush as a 'good bloke' merely because he got to chat with him at the official BBQ. Committed environmentalist Irwin was of course rubbing shoulders with one of the world's worst environmental vandals.

### PM John Howard has written to Kylie Russell to apologise for not inviting her to Canberra to hear George Bush praise her husband Seargent Andrew Russell who was killed in Afghanistan.
Kylie was shopping with her small daughter in a suburban mall when she heard George Bush praising Sgt Russell. She said she felt physically ill and nearly fainted.
Kylie Russell has been a vocal exponent on the Federal Govt' failure to properly provide care for the families of serviceman killed in action.

#### The wreath George Bush laid at the War Memorial for Seargent Russell had nothing written on it (from the generic wreath cupboard ?) and Bush didn't even lay it..an assistant did.

##### Leader of the Opposition Simon Crean from the Labor Party who has always received the biggest number of votes of any party is fuming that PM John Howard broke all protocol rules and excluded him from the wreath laying ceremony and the official BBQ.
John Howard, just like George Bush became Prime Minister on a minority vote.
