FitzSimons of The Tele

Dr Mumbo nearly choked on his traditional Australia Day breakfast of lamingtons and Bundy after opening up Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph this morning.

There on page 15 was the Sydney Morning Herald’s most popular columnist Peter FitzSimons writing for its News Corp rival.

It would certainly mark a big defection.

However, it looks to Dr Mumbo rather more like mischief-making by The Tele’s layout subs. Despite being laid out to look like a column, the piece is actually on a news page, and features FitzSimons writing in his role as chairman of the Australian Republican Movement.

And the piece also went up on the SMH website last night.
