Unlike most journos who are going to be reporting on George Pell’s testimony to the Child Abuse Royal Commission from Rome this morning, I’ve actually met the bloke.

He is a mate of the Branch Stacker’s old man, and used to stay over at their joint in Spring Hill when he came to BrisVegas back in the day. Whether he came in other ways I wouldn’t know, because all I saw and met was an arrogant f*cker who demanded he finest of everything that life had to offer, and didn’t want to know you if you couldn’t provide it.

Bit like the Stacker himself I suppose.

Good morning old mate! Remember the old days, when we were friends, and I was best man at your wedding?
