You know, I was going to get up and post some interesting musings about my taste in music and how it gets harder to define the older I get because I start liking more and more different things...

WHO CARES. LOOK AT THE GOVERNMENT.

I am currently flipping frantically between different news websites, just watching...

Okay. The next person on the internet who says "Ah, but she's not really Prime Minister because she wasn't directly elected by the people..." will have their bucket firmly taken away.


Brief lesson on Australian politics:
- We have parties.
- We vote for our favourite ones.
- We end up voting in the party most of us want.
- The party decides who their Prime Minister will be.

We never "directly elect" our Prime Minister. She's been given the job in precisely the same way as all the other Prime Ministers were. (A slightly more dramatic and unexpected version, sure. But still roughly the same.)

LEARN YOUR POLITICS, PEOPLE. I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO TAKE YOUR BUCKETS.


(Feel free, by the way, to say "She's not really Prime Minister because she SUCKS." or "She's not really Prime Minister because she's awesome and is actually QUEEN OF THE MULTIVERSE."
Those are opinions. Weird ones - but not bucket-taking offences.)
