arccie: 12kingdoms break (Default)
...surprisingly enough I actually have one.

I am not a political follower, and generally thought when I was younger that my votes would be a choice of eenie-meanie-miney-moe (may be a slight exaggeration, but the basic ideas was there).
The current Australian politics is geared towards grabbing your votes NOW for the STATE election this weekend, and the FEDERAL election at the end of the year. All of the parties are promising rubbish, that won't be kept (although the promise of an up to date high speed broadband network is tempting) as always.

Yet my main political agenda is don't vote liberal and get John Howard out of a position of power.
The man has been in power long enough (let alone the fact he is a Gollum look-alike, is thorougly embarassing to see on TV [why the news went to HIM about Australia's chances in the FIFA world cup I'll NEVER know] and is making it harder and less desirable to join the work force than ever)
This opinion is basically followed by everyone I know. They don't care who, they just want him out. (Everyone else votes as their parents did, or are high stakes rollers seemingly)

*sighs and shakes head*
His latest news piece involved his stance on our soldiers in Afghanistan (which I half half agree with). There was, however, NO NEED for him to be wearing a LEATHER JACKET.

It was seriously creepy. *shudders*

On a side note, I can't wait to have a female prime minister which is DEFINITELY not happening with a liberal government any time soon (at least labor would have a female deputy...which would then hopefully roost Rudd from office too).
