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.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

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).  :-)  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.
