A Vintage Leunig cartoon about politicians

The election trail is becoming boring and repetitive and there's too much talk about money. I think Hugh Mackay in today's Age is right when he says: 'The government succeeded in getting the economy back as the top agenda item, but since I believe this is not what this election is about, the danger is that voters simply switch off. The voters have repeatedly said 'Could someone please talk to us about the kind of society we want to become.' They would love one side or the other to say something visionary about Australian society - involving the four big issues: education, health, the environment the workplace.'

There has been little talk about borders and attitudes to the rest of the world as I think foreign policy is rather important at the moment. Instead of 'me too' from Rudd on every which way but loose he should come up with some outstanding words about overseas aid and foreign policy.

In other words politicians are one of the few constants in the universe.

I once admired Peter Garrett, then a Greenie, but now he seems to just be followin' the leader.

Moody, when I look at your blog, my computer doesn't like one of your bits of software, maybe to do with listening to music, and it jams up so I have to leave without reading the whole post!

Wendy, it's probably the animated web counter. I had the same problem for a while, and it was fixed when I updated Java (free and easy to do). You might also want to try updating your Flash player (even easier to do).

Actually, the problem might have had to do with too much memory being used by the web counter when it was really full, but updating did solve the problem.
