You’ve seen him wearing Top Gun sunnies, bringing a billy to boil, leaning on a bunch of bananas and addressing the ‘Don’t Meddle with Marriage’ rally.

But what’s going on under that hat?

In these pages we lift the brim and uncover the words of a true-blue Aussie who shoots from the hip.

Bob Katter doesn’t hold back when it comes to himself: “There is a rage in my soul, a hatred in my soul.”

Far-north Queensland: “It is a magic land and we could support … a population of 80 million people in the Gulf Country alone.”

Women: “He said that I considered women second-class citizens. If they were staying at home and not working then I would not consider them second-class; I would consider them first-class citizens.”

Environmental activists: “… not a race of people that I like in any way, shape or form.”

The information age: “I have long since given up reading journals and newspapers and watching the television, because the flow of information is so erroneous and mis-leading.”

Stem-cell researchers: “… there are a lot of people who are pretty keen on becoming Dr Moreau or Dr Frankenstein.””

Gay rights: “If homosexuality is a fashion statement, it is a very dangerous fashion statement …”

The live cattle trade industry: “They’re people that love their animals, sort of.”

And that’s just a taste of Kattertonia.
