Summit a go-goIN a welcome break from the regular pundits, ABC1's Insiders unveiled go-go dancers as the go-to people for opinion on the 2020 Summit. Anna Achia, of Anna's Go-Go Academy in Melbourne, said celebrities at the summit killed the perception it was just a boring talkfest with "politicians sitting around, eating cheese and touching their frontbums".
Achia - who also goes by the name Muffy Manhattan - and her fellow go-go academicians proved themselves well across their brief, giving Kevin Rudd a drubbing for skipping John Button's funeral to go manger-side and present a gift to Cate Blanchett's new sprog Ignatius: "He's probably going to see Cate during the weekend at the summit anyway; I'm sure he could've given it to her then." Meanwhile Brendan Nelson ("You couldn't warm a pie on the guy") was like a rebound boyfriend for the Liberal Party while it sorted itself and sought true love.
