Very true Infinite, this means Australia will most likely become a Republic within a few years. Neither side of politics is going to back the monarchy
now, and I believe Rudd promised a referendum by 2010. I also note that our new Prime Minister is adept at handling foreign relations of all kinds,
and he actually speaks Mandarin. I realistically expect our relationships within the Asia Pacific region to grow a lot stronger.
For me, it has been long decade of loathing and shame with such an ass-backwards Govt. I spit on Howard's pathetic legacy of fear, racism, class
division and war. His pathetic manner, which was a shallow act at gullible uneducated Australians, always pissed me off. I don't vote either major
party but I say good riddance to Howard, and good luck to the USA in doing the same. I'm slightly more proud to be an Australian tonight
