Why did it take so long for the drug companies to put ibuprofen and paracetamol in the same pill?

I don’t see how that’s relevant. Drug safety is about context - paracetamol may well be as dangerous to someone with compromised liver function as ibuprofen is to someone on blood thinners.

You guys have Excedrin! Aspirin, acetaminophen (paracetamol), and caffeine - similar concept, but with caffeine! Great for hangovers - just stick to the dosage on the label.

I saw in an interview recently that Latham denied your offer to be in treasury and instead put Swan there. I also note you were later instrumental in our response to the GFC, and that of the global response.

In an alternate history, if Latham did give you the treasury position, would you have thrown your hat in for the leadership after Beazley? If not, how do you see the GFC playing out in the parliamentary setting with you as shadow/treasurer?
