“Our Canadian Braveheart”

On Monday, for my appearance at Parliament House in Canberra, I had the great privilege of being introduced by Australia’s Foreign Minister, the Hon Julie Bishop, MP. The last time she introduced me – a couple of years back in Perth – she had to sit through my version of “Kung Fu Fighting”, which included me leaping off the stage and disco-wiggling down the aisle. In America, the minders would worry about the “optics” of that and advise the Secretary of State to give me a wide berth henceforth. But Australia’s Foreign Minister is less fainthearted, and was happy to come back for more.
