Real soon now (October 9, in fact), Australia faces a Federal election. We have (in reality) two choices in this matter – another three years with the nasty, right-wing, dishonest leadership we have now, or the alternative, moderate left of Mark Latham’s Labor Party.
Now, I’m no great fan of Labor – they’ve done a few things of late which I think betrays their open-minded, pro-humanity roots. I certainly won’t be voting for them directly – my vote will go to the Greens in both the Senate and House of Representatives. That way, I can make my protest against the major parties and still try to ensure that the Senator representing me is a Green (Kerrie Tucker is a REAL chance) and that my HoR member is only through on preferences (given I live in a safe Labor seat).
Take a look at Dear John for some grassroots, anti-Liberal movement!
