Historian, essayist, speechwriter, humorist, anti-cant crusader; Watson has a gift for luring us to the nub of a matter, or at least to a new view of it, there to grin or grind our teeth at the spectacle.

Over the years he has written on the politics of Australia and the USA, sport, nature, history, and crimes against speech. At the heart of all of his work is the belief that, more than just about anything else in a civilised society words matter.
