I'll just talk to myself for a bit.
We're getting a new PM. Tony Abbott, the mad monk, looks set to topple Kevin Rudd as PM, who himself knifed Julia Gillard just a short time ago.

Rudd may lose his own seat as well.
Doesn't matter. Well it DOES, but not really. Abbot is the worst of a bad lot but it's still a bad lot.
I voted below the line, so (remember, preference voting) I numbered my preferences for all 110 choices for the lower house. Go me.
We're in such a good position economically, the fact that the Australian people can't get their act together is really fucking depressing. I think the next person that says 'stop the boats' should be set out to sea on a leaky one. Here's a hit, fuckwits, most of our illegal immigrants come by AIRPLANE and they are BRITISH. And it's not illegal to seek asylum. Could we concentrate and do things that work instead of worrying about a tiny number of people who come here on boats? Even if they are brown? I know this country was founded on racism (see: White Australia Policy) but that was years ago (well, 1967, no really, that's when) so could we stop being such racist, racist fuckwits please and talk about real issues like Syria and coal seam gas and global warming and sustainable transport?
Oh here, this is what a stand up guy Abbott is, if you're into homophobes who helped hide paedophile priests when he was in training to be one: http://www.independentaustralia.net/201 ... who-is-he/
Asshole. Rudd's just as bad. Fuck me, Australia. You suck.
I'm going to go get drunk now. Wish me luck.
