LATELINE: Tony Jones sets splendiferous sartorial standards as Lateline anchor, burning all his white shirts!


You've got to hand it to Tojo, aka SilverToes, for consistently turning out so well presented in his role as LATELINE anchor three nights a week on Australia's favourite Aunty, the ABC. And all without a stitch of white in his shirts.

Memo to Jonathan Holmes of Media Watch:

Always wear a tie Jonathan, not just sometimes! How could you not expect a serious effort in the half hour ahead, when you tune in and see a man turned out as smartly and professionally as Tony Jones always does? It's simple visual psychology, proven repeatedly, from day dot.

Use Tony Jones as your template – you could do worse.

Unless, Jonathan, you don't take your efforts, and the efforts of the Media Watch team behind you, seriously… A simple thing, a tie, for ten or fifteen bloody minutes once a week! Pretty please…

I'm Steve's mum - you'd better believe it, Vegimite face. My lad can can do without this publicity - he's clean living and intelligent whether he wears glasses or not. Lay off - or else!
Just as well you cloaked the questions. I might just have sued you for contamination of character!

Stephen's Mum: Nice to meet you at last, you being the devoted mother who goes to the trouble of accompanying the apple of your eye to the Ultimo
studios every Friday night, and tousling your son Stephen Long's curly hair.

I do sympathise with you regarding the some of the tawdry nasturtiums being cast upon your sweet son with this poll, just because he didn't wear his glasses last Friday night on LATELINE with Leigh Sales, even if I am the one casting them.

'Vegemite Face': I like that, and I can hardly blame you, considering my header picture.

And by the way, if you will repost your comment to the post above, I'll repost this reply to there as well: this is the wrong posting!

Now you've got your nippy teeth into someone else's little boy. Leave the tieless alone and look to your own dress — huh!
