Tim Blair goes on with SIEV-X conspiracy theorists, reaming Robert Manne in the process.

The phrase "this makes me ashamed to be Australian" has been debased in the Australian media, ever since the electorate disregarded the advice of the commentariat, and elected the wrong government. But I am uneasy sharing citizenship with these people. They have no moral barometer other than what will play in today's column. They have no sense that to constantly denigrate their country undermines the national soul far worse than the issues they want to advance.

When all their nudge-wink allegations are laid to rest, will they apologise to their targets? Will they say anything about the stain, however small, they have left on the Australian Armed Services?
