Of course, it isn't as long as the show is structured like a sausage machine of conservative commentary and anything other is spoken about from a safe distance. The Bolt Report is indeed not the ABCs The DRUM or Q&A Bolt needs time to rehearse and become familiar with his friend the autocue.
So Friday and Saturday is off time as is most of Sunday. He does have to write his column for Monday of course and send it in for printing, but that's not an issue because the framework has already been prepared during the week. Its one or two of his blog posts that only need a little padding out and after 30 years and training as an obituary writer that's easy as. Yet Bolt makes out he works an 80 hour week when pointing to and disparaging others for not really working. Particularly those on welfare who attempt any public discourse he announces to the world what slackers they are compared to him.
In his 80 hour work week, he has time to read and review novels he's read before and podcast with his IPA mate John Roxham about them. Write what he declares are books but aren't little more than a collection of essays he's already written. I suspect an editor can actually do that for him. So basically Bolt's life is easy as other than being a social isolate the price he has to pay for continually abusing real Australians something he clearly is not. So Andrew holidays overseas dreams of retirement on a barge in socialist, multiracial and multicultural Amsterdam where he has for over most of his life felt more at home and its why he most likely keeps two passports. This is the man who tells us he's more indigenous than Adam Goodes Australian of the Year and anyone identifying as indigenous that's younger than he is that he's truer blue an Aussie than most of that black mob who live in remote communities and more than Waleed Aly the mozzie on Ch10.
As for his mates the Ravens and Magpies well they have been merely bribed against the advice of better-informed heads of Wild Life experts employed to protect our natural fauna.
