Hehe sorry for being a downer about it I just lost whatever little remaining hope and respect I had left in our system of government when KRudd and
Turnip argued about a bloody ute for week while the rest of the world was panicking about that small little thing called a Global Recession.
Have you ever watched Question Time? I watched it a few times that week and seriously, with the exception of a small minority of members, our entire
government has degenerated into bickering about "Points of Order" and who is the manliest of them all (yes I even include the female parlimentarians
in that one). It is an utter disgrace, nothing less. If I could see ANY hope at all of making a big change in our government I would start my own
career in politics. But, sadly, it's a closed off world and the average man or woman doesn't stand a hope in hell of being heard unless they already
know someone who is 'in the loop'.
But I have to admit we weathered the storm quite well compared to the rest of the world. My only hope is that it is not a delayed reaction and that we
have yet to see the worst of it here.
Anyhoo, I'm done now hehe.....
