Peter Brent - a twitterer with the courage of his convictions

I don't know why Peter Brent's mumble blog no longer appears on the website of The Australian. Perhaps his commentary was too intelligent and interesting. Whatever. He has not stopped making his insights public on other sites with his twitter site providing the best link to find them.
I particularly like his courage in putting his predictions about the forthcoming election on the record with a list of what he describes as: "Election bets. Worry not, just small amounts. Needless to say, I don't consider a win in each likely, just good odds."

What a pity that the overwhelming majority of political pundits are not prepared to put their pontifications to the test.
At the moment I am cowardly in that majority category - see my piece yesterday Money keeps coming for the Coalition to win Australian election
