I was reading an article few months ago about Andrew Bolt. He once had a girlfriend/fiannce and the relationship broke down. Her thoughts about him-
"I do not know what has happened to the Andrew I knew so well. The person he has become bears no resemblance to the ethical, highly principled and idealistic young man I loved."
It dons't supprice me that Andrew Bolt has changed. Love can make you like things which you would have had no time for previously. How many Christian blokes have converted to marry the one they love?(I'm sure there are girls as well but I have no one who I know of where there has happened) You like a certain dress but really you couldn't really give a damn.
So yes I think she was slightly naive. Yes love can change a person, just as money. And maybe that is what we see with Andrew Bolts writing; writing crafted to be controversial for the money. Strangely when I see him in on a television panel he seems actually reasonable. Unlike his writing....
