QANTAS bid crashes

In the very same issue in which the collapsed private equity bid for Qantas is described as "Pythonesque", the following paragraph appeared in the /Australian Financial Review's /description of yesterday's Brisbane May Day march (40,000).

"The Socialist Alliance was also doing a roaring trade yesterday selling "Up Yours Howard" lime green stubby holders for $10 each."

Should we prepare to repel private equity boarders?
