I'm pretty upset by this election. Part of it is that I can't perceive any difference between Labor & Liberal (I guess apart from the fact that one of their leaders has shiny red hair and the other has abs of steel), and the ensuing fact that it makes me feel rather powerless that the way our election system is set up, one of them will win.
Seriously? Surely we have the technology to merge J-Gill and T-Abs into 1 person, with red-hair & steely-abs, and then have them face off against lovely Bob Brown? Because if their main policy differences are whether asylum seekers should be imprisoned on Nauru or East Timor, or the best way to successfully ignore climate change, then what's the point?
I think we all know that Australia can do better than fear-monger about 'queue jumping', 'illegal immigrants' & 'boat people', or, yet again, refusing to introduce same-sex marriage, or completely ignoring the crazy & scary reality of climate change.
