Malcolm Turnbull [Sep. 16th, 2008|11:06 am]
News has come out today that Macolm Turnbull has just won the vote to be the leader of Australia's opposition party, the Liberal Party of Australia. Now, just to set aside some confusion, here in Australia, our Liberal's are actually our conservatives. Fun huh :P
a little history, a little observation, a little concludingCollapse )
We're still 2 years out (plus some) from the next election, so there's lots of time for things to happen. Not the least the US election. If McCain really struggles, expect the right in the US to pay careful attention to the next Australian (and UK) elections. If a more liberal right gets elected over here, expect to see a shift away from the neo-cons. Personally, I predict there will be some very vocal libertarian voices arise in US politics over the next decade, which I think will make a great opposition to an increasingly socialist (or at least welfare orientated) left wing. With opposing sides like this, I don't think it will matter too much who is in power in the US, as either would be better than what we have today (from the perspective of the rest of the world that is).

Ooh, also, this means we'll be a republic within 7 years :) BYE BYE QUEENY!

EDIT: Looks like the Republic is on for the next election.

"Speaking shortly after Mr Turnbull was narrowly elected the Liberal Party's new leader, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd challenged him to stay true to his word and create a bi-partisan push to cut ties with the British Monarchy."

The kinds of things that go through my mind on a Saturday morning. [Sep. 6th, 2008|08:51 am]
For any of you who are philosophically minded (that includes all you dick joke types), I've got an idea rattling around in my head. I'd appreciate it if any of you could read it to see if I'm making sense. If it does make sense, what do you think?
Does it do us any good to think of the world in terms of a subject/object dichotomy?Collapse )

Sorry if I'm not making perfect sense, this is largely a brain fart, and I need some other people to bounce it off. Thanks.

A post on Australian politics, just to keep up with the average American/Russian post. [Aug. 28th, 2008|11:23 pm]
Sick of Rudd. Howard's gone, that's all I cared about, and Rudd's looking about as useful as Brumby.

Read the interesting thoughts, placed delicately on the intertubes for your perusal by clicking on the blue text. And by blue text, I mean this bit. While we"re at it, you know what went wrong in Beijing? Cos seriously, that was crap. Spin it anyway you want, but that was NOT GOOD ENOUGH. If sport is going to be the only bit of culture this rock spits out into the world (judging by the way we fund things), then I want to RULE THE FUCKING WORLD. If I paid tax, this would be what my tax dollars would be going to. Well I pay an emotional tax, emotional as in having to place all my hopes and dreams for my country on the shoulders on a few select athletes. And Beijing was JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH. I don"t blame the athletes, they tried their hardest. I blame the administration. And by administration I mean those guys in suits who make decisions. I don"t know who they are, but they exist, I"ve seen them at the supermarket. Maybe we need a drugs programme. Everyone else is doing it. As I said, this is our only culture outlet, so we need to fund the science through the sport. Let"s get our best scientists on to how to breed East German/Chinese Ubermensch that can"t be detected. Or something. I DON"T KNOW! I DON"T HAVE THE ANSWERS! But at least I"m giving suggestions, what are YOU doing??? I"ll tell you who is REALLY TO BLAME for the failure at the Olympics: Qantas. I saw the ads. Collapse )

I think you should all be convinced by now.

Jane has a new euphemism. Going to the gynaecologist is now "going to have your vehicle inspected". I wonder if she goes to one of those full service ones that give you an oil and grease change.

India Accomodation [Aug. 26th, 2008|07:25 pm]
Is it important we stay in Mandrem? Arambol is a few K's north and the Lying Bastard indicates they have more shack like accommodation, plus some that are cheaper.

A little south is Asvem, they have lots of huts too.

Someone's welcome to borrow this book if they want to chase places up, otherwise I should be on the coast some time around the 8th-10th of December and my plan is just to cruise around til I find something.


One question, how important is it to get a beach shack? I'd prefer it, but it may happen that I find a good hostel or something where we can get an entire room, or a few rooms. My considerations would be cost/location.
