As part of the Prime Minister’s Tasmanian visit John Howard spoke at the Axeman’s Hall of Fame in Latrobe, northern Tasmania on Wednesday 2nd May. The previous day, May 1st, this was the scene in the main street of Latrobe looking south from outside the Axeman’s Hall of Fame. A sight familiar to Tasmanians but perhaps not something John Howard has seen before. Was it planning or sheer luck that our Prime Minister missed out by one day on seeing an autumn sky replete with regeneration burn mushroom cloud?
