Politics
Well done Canberra
You delivered the assembly I wanted.
My #1 choice got in, a new member!
Well it's almost what I wanted. Almost.
One less Green would have been perfect.

I am however an environmentalist. But a rational one.

A "no Greens" assembly might have woken up the silent majority of environmentalists who think the Greens would speak and act for them.

Other wake up calls - major catastrophes. Melting ice caps. Dying reefs. Hotter average temperatures. Rising seas.

Human causes.


And many people just don't care.

We should all take and share responsibility. "They" won't fix it, we will.

p.s. Anyone see "Icehouse" last night?

  1. I like the look of that 4 x 1500m, I must take to the guys here, it's time we had one here again.

  2. Majority governments with no upper house of review don't work. This one is about as responsible as you can get. Plenty of pressure on one person to get it right.
