Sign of rift between Bolt and McGuire

One suddenly develops something approaching admiration for Eddie McGuire when Andrew Bolt whines,

“Eddie McGuire means well, but clearly hasn’t listened to a word I’ve said.”

McGuire’s error, apparently, is to not regard Bolt as being supremely authoritative on everything.

It’s difficult to imagine McGuire actively working against Bolt, but McGuire’s transgressions may be more sins of omission than anything else. For instance, McGuire was curiously mute when Bolt boldly condemned then-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for giving aid and succour to Robert Mugabe.

Still, at least Bolt regards McGuire as well-meaning. And we can be confident this has nothing at all to do with McGuire being a somewhat wealthy and influential figure.
