Aussie election results

well they say that people get the government they deserve. then australians have clearly demonstrated that they deserve a couple of grubby little self interested liars as their leaders. it is quite disapointing but i guess it was prety predictable. the liberals (actually reactionary conservative) are in for a fourth term with an increased majority. i gusess there won't be much more for them to rip off after this.

part of the problem is that there were no candidates with any moral courage or vision to vote for. I guess that is not something you find in a democracy as it is all just a numbers game. aldous huxley said something about democracies where the majority are stupid and the result thereof so i suppose nothing is new. we can look forward to another 3 years of looking backwards. a bloody mess if you ask me.
