also i heard a great speech by your "man of the year 2007"- Tim Flannery today. Its one of the most informative speechs i've heard about climate change. a very good speaker, who doesn't focus on one aspect and rail away at it but has a rather reasonable approach that even a flatworlder might listen to. no sensationalism like incovienient truth (which is still and excellent movie however)

For me it was a 14 hour day handing out voting papers and then counting votes!! The election really had little to do with the war; that was a minor issue!!

I'm not entirely happy with the outcome but I guess it's step forward in some areas.

Do you mind if I ask who you campaigned for, corwin?

Corwin November 25th, 2007 06:44

I didn't campaign for anyone, I was an AEC polling official!! I was the guy who handed you the ballots an explained how to fill them out!! :)

Good riddance. While I normally prefer the right wing alternative in developed democracies I never cared much for Howard.

And I had constantly this crazy idea that Corwin disliked politics, but obviously this is a secret plot to prepare voters before the next elections :biggrin:

Corwin December 4th, 2007 01:03

I loathe politics/politicians, but this was a paying job!! :)

well I can't say I'm happy that labour took charge of whole country but I must say I'm happy Howard is finally kicked out from the PM position…. :D

At the very least, Kevin is a Queenslander, so he must have some redeeming qualities!! :)
