Having had 200 chats to Virginia on the ABC in Melbourne and Sydney over the last eight years, I could hardly say no to her request to co-host the first half hour of her last show on December 14, 2008, which turned into a lively 50 minute chat you can listen to here.
Three days earlier on Tuesday December 11, 2008, we were meant to have our final on-air chat after what has been more than 50 hours of live radio since the launch of Crikey on February 14, 2000. Plenty of people got a thorough bagging during these discussions, but as a farewell gesture we really gave a decent and much-deserved spray to successive NSW Governments for financial incompetence as Morris Iemma proposes a flawed $15 billion power sell-off to ease his government's burgeoning debt and deficit problems.
