A short angry blog post

Busy busy day... family stuff. But I'm still going to make my one post a day, dammit. I was gearing up to have a bit of a spray about Australian politics but I'll be honest with you, it's pretty boring.

Our Prime Minister seems to be this immovable object that won't retire despite being past retirement age. And he keeps winning elections. This is possibly the most boring politician in the world - he lived at home with his mother until his 30s and seems to want Australia to move back to his idealised view of the 1950s. What I'm most angry about regarding John Howard (the PM) is that I'll never be able to say anything funnier about him than the summary recently pronounced by Billy Connolly - that the only useful thing about Howard is that he shows us what Harry Potter will look like at 70.

I really wish he'd retire because then the leader and deputy leader of the Liberal party (I know it's confusing - in Australia the conservative party is called the Liberals) would be named Abbott and Costello (not necessarily in that order). You can't invent stuff that funny. It would only be better if their first names were Terrence and Philip.
