I can't wait too see the transcript from tonights Lateline, Tony "The
Mad Monk" Abbott apparenly met with Pell, then forgot about it, it was a great bit of journalism by Tony Jones.
Here is the transcript
TONY JONES: Tony Abbott on another matter, have you met Archbishop Pell during the election campaign?
TONY ABBOTT: Not that I can recall.
TONY JONES: Not that you can recall, because we believe that you've had at least one meeting with him quite recently?
You don't recall that?
TONY ABBOTT: Well, when?
TONY JONES: At the presbytery in Sydney.
TONY ABBOTT: Ah, actually now that you do mention it, I did met with Cardinal Pell.
Why shouldn't I meet with Cardinal Pell?
TONY JONES: Why couldn't you recall meeting him, I think, 10 days ago?
TONY ABBOTT: Look, whenever it was, so what?
Why shouldn't I meet Cardinal Pell.
