Another Three Years

Oh well, Australia has voted the Howard Government back in for another three years. The politics of fear certanly work here (people tent to vote for the “devil they know” when scared by higher morgages/terrorism/the boogie man).

We did have a chance to rid ourselves of the right-wing little munchkin, but alas, not this time. I think the alternate (the Labour Party) ended up too far to the right themselves on a number of issues, and started to look too much like the Liberals.

My fear is that President Bush will gain a bit of milage from it.. Especially after what I read this morning: minor presidential candidates arested.. Land of the free? Bah! I’m just glad I don’t live in The Amerian Police State (formally known as the USA)
