ABC News reports assault charge for egg thrower
Lawyer Peter Gordon acting for Will "Egg Boy" Connolly releases lengthy statement

A clean break from the Christchurch coverage

I'm going to make a clean break from covering the Christchurch attacks and their aftermath.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed to our discussions here.  It's a very significant event with far-reaching implications - but it could easily overwhelm the other work I need to stay focussed on.

I'll leave you with Bill Shorten's attempt at sincerity over New Zealand - good on the camera guy for getting Bill's giveaway "Was that all-right?"

Once you can fake sincerity!!!!!
