John Clarke Throws a Gumboot at Australian PM

New Zealand comedian John Clarke has demonstrated “speechwriting at its finest” in the ABC TV spoof about the Sydney Olympics, The Games. Penning the words for John Howard, actor, Clarke showed John Howard, Prime Minister, how a genuine leadership speech should be written and offered an apology to the aboriginal people. Says John Howard, actor, “For the first time I’m not afraid to share the same name as the PM.”
