Man of The People

Actor Russell Crowe has thrown his celebrity weight behind Anthony Albanese MP as leader of the Labor Party.
Albanese sat with Crowe and his sons at the Friday South Sydney Vs Melbourne footie match at the ANZ Stadium and were often deep in conversation. Russell has previously tweeted his support for PM Julia Gillard when she was under a media attack.

Both Crowe and Albanese have been life long South Sydney supporters. But will Albanese have a challenge for the leadership on his hands with the MP for the South Sydney area, former health minister the very popular Tanya Plibersek ?. The Shuttle's political spy disguised as a polling booth says Labor are reluctant to take on another female leader at present after the "Gillard experiment" which they believe demonstrated that the media wasn't ready for a female leader.
Meanwhile on Facebook, twitter and much of the social media, Liberal Party supporters, having had their dream fulfilled are actively pondering upon whether Malcolm Turnbull can be drafted into the top job.

A Day at The Races : Ben Hur

If you are going to the ANZ Stadium this Friday or Saturday for the performance of Ben Hur, take a rug. It gets cold, very cold. Here are some snaps we took from Wednesday night's full dress rehearsal that went without a hitch.

This show has it all-half naked men wrestling each other, slave girls being whipped, huge galley ships being erected before your eyes and leprosy !. A Roman stadium built as you watch and that race-the race between Ben Hur and his rival. There are still 14000 tickets available but that means audiences of at least 15000 at each show, something that should really boost the atmosphere ( there is audience participation).And of course Russell Crowe narrating ( which makes up for Jesus Christ's American accent). Friday night's show is introduced by Richard Wilkins, Saturday's by Alan Jones. Book at Ticketek here !

The Roman Senate !

Ben Hur takes the lead at the 9th lap !
