It looks like the aussies have decided to make some big changes. My friend Nick in Hobart let me know that he and some friends were going out and drinking champagne.

bumper sticker I saw in Hobart:
Save the Bush, Doze a Greenie.

Looks like the pulp mill in Tassie is going to have a tough fight now.

Bob Brown from the Green party is going for a full term now in the senate.

hmmmm.  don't remember you taking note of the changes in Germany and France.  they are arguably more important to the international picture (sorry Aussies).  smiley  we'll see how this works out for our buddies down under.  like the us, the overall leaning of the Australian people tends more to the conservative.  like us, they may find that the "scoundrel" they threw out is not as bad as the one they voted in.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
