LoL , I'm Australian, and it's a safe bet that I've been here longer than you sunshine.
So rant away me hearty, and while your at it, think about this.
There's nothing left for our Federal and State governments to sell except our dirt.It's all gone,our public assets has been privatized and this grab for cash (and the Super grab) are a once only option.The only way left to keep the SS Titanic Australis afloat is increased taxation and/or increases in energy/water prices.Those holes in the ground that everyone seems to think will keep our sorry backsides afloat will soon be a liability.
What do you think will happen when China decides they don't need us any more? What happens when the currency wars ( the ones we're not officially having ) really kick in ? .. You,my little pre-schooler,are sunk,and maybe then aussies will turn off the footie,put down the beer and march to Canberra.
There's a nice chart over at ZH that Aussies should take a long hard look at.
Me ? .. I'll just sit back and laugh and look at the nice new passport I got a while back.
