Australian election

I've been to busy to blog recently, so this is a bit after the event but, although I thought John Howard was an outstanding political leader, I'm not upset there was a Labor victory in Australia. The Liberals had been in power for a long time. An occasional change of government is necessary in democracies.

As an Australian (in part), I'm more worried about the integrity of democracy and the corrupting influence of power than I am about the prospect of a Labor term of office.

Well said, Sir.

Eh? They'll be fricking up the place just when I'm about to flee the crumbling building that is labour-governed NZ. It's not like I want to return to the Brown UK.
