Well, That's Not Something You See Every Day...

Australia has a new Prime Minister today - Julia Gillard.  No, we haven't had an election (that will happen later this year).  Rather, the Labor Party dumped Kevin Rudd.

And a good thing too - particularly if they can also take the scalp of Senator Conroy in the process.  Between them, former PM Kevin Rudd and Communications Minister Steven Conroy have been delivering Australia the worst government in thirty years.  (Thrity-five to be precise.  And we all know how that ended.)

Hopefully we'll see Senator Conroy replaced with Senator Kate Lundy, who has been an outspoken voice of sanity in the ongoing internet filtering circus.  At least compared to Conroy, who has been consistently disingenuous and bordered on the delusional and defamatory at times.

On the down side, this certainly improves Labor's chances at the next election, which were, under Rudd, approximately zero.  On the up side, I'm not too hot on Liberal leader Tony Abbott either.

So I did the math and Googled "Australia 1985"....and came up with this.

25 November - A man wearing a chicken suit walks into the House of Representatives and sits on the government front bench. He is later removed.


Was this really worse than the recent war on DFCs, or am, I missing something?

2 Yes I missed something...basic arithmetic.

Now being awake and marginally more capable of math and belatedly realizing that 2010-35= 1975 I looked it up and found it was about as bad a year for y'all as it was for us.

So I gather that chicken men would be an improvement then?
