At last …

The poll that matters. Tomorrow …

I cast my vote sometime ago. Put important personal details on the outside of the envelope and dropped it in the mail. That should process be improved.

The lesser polls predict a Liberal win. Labor thoroughly deserve to have their arses kicked, they have been the worst government in my lifetime. They clearly cannot run on their record and instead, after years of moaning that Abbott is negative, they run almost exclusively on negativity. The balance of their platform is blatant lies. The talent, such as it was, fled with Julia. You would have to be stupid to want another three years of them.

I do hope that there is a clear outcome. The country needs a strong government and one that has the balls to get the economy back on track, one that makes us all a little richer. And one that is not obstructed by a hostile senate or obliged to make shonky deals with silly minor parties or independents. It may well be time that Australia thought about how the senate might be reformed.

As the results come in I will be nowhere near a TV or computer. By the time the polls close I hope to be sitting by a campfire in the wilds of Victoria’s beautiful Big Desert with a beer in my hand. The new prime minister will have to wait a day or so for my congratulations and advice.

All the best …

  1. With Abbott about to become Australia’s face and voice on the international stage, I feel totally embarrassed to be an Australian.

    His performance and presentation will be what all other nations judge us on for the next 3 years, and I’d bet, even the rusted-on believers will become uneasy, shuffle their feet and lower their heads to their chest.

    Regardless of who anyone votes for, there’s a damn good chance we’ll end up with a bunch of politicians in charge and, looking at the available talent, this is a major problem for Australia.

    Australians have 3 year now to find good honest decent people with leadership qualities, and encourage them to run for parliament. If enough good ones get involved they will swamp the entrenched crud which currently controls both major partys.

    Maybe we need a coalition of independents, dunno !!

    Or maybe just a cold beer or two to drown the sorrows.
