Nice to make the OZ for I think the third time, but I feel a little bit gypped that they didn’t even mention the website or name me as the bright spark. Was it all my media hammering? Mate that REALLY upsets Julian.
“A new mobile phone ring tone is doing the rounds with well-connected types in Perth. Instead of the usual bells, jingles or pop songs, some bright spark has downloaded Burke’s voice from secretly taped telephone intercepts that were played to the Corruption and Crime Commission earlier this year and that are available on their website. So when the phone rings, you hear: “Brian Burke speaking … Brian Burke speaking …” And when a text message arrives, you can be alerted by this Burke gem captured by the CCC when the networking king was sprung doing a deal without the knowledge of his partner Julian Grill: “Mate, mate, that will just upset Julian …”
For those who still want to be one of those well-connected types, the ringtone download is still available through this post.
While we’re panning, how about The Worst of Perth reader who casually informs me that while she was walking past the zoo in South Perth, she came across a dead escaped animal, but despite having her camera phone DIDN’T TAKE A PICTURE! It was later found to be an escaped raccoon. I’m seething today. I may need to hit the drive through Buddhist Centre.
