The author highlights what he claims is the rapid spread of delusion in Australia. He cites Rob Oakeshott as delusional when he said that broadband is what the country people need to boost jobs and export opportunities. He calls Bob Brown the Grand Master Delusion for advocating that a 50% mining tax will fix everything. He claims Anna Bligh is also inflicted with the delusional epidemic because she continues to endorse the Wild River legislation that is helping to strangle her state budget.
