It’s a terrific relief to hear that Sam Newman has reportedly offered to mentor the so-called St Kilda school girl, Kim Duthie. We can only presume that she has called upon Newman’s services because Larry Flynt, Ryan Giggs and Silvio Berlusconi were unavailable.
The prospect of Sam Newman providing pastoral care to this poor screwed-up 17-year-old girl is almost hilarious. Which is of course the problem with this entire story. Superficially it is almost hilarious but if you have a proper think about it, it is not hilarious at all.
It’s a bizarre, free-wheeling circus alright, but it’s not an amusing story about sex, sport and scandal. It’s a story about two things only – child protection and mental illness.
