On the eve of this most painful and difficult Election there is much to think about, much to hope for and just as much to fear.
I truly hope that on Sunday morning my (obviously Left leaning) niece will be doing this.
Why yes I would indoctrinate her to avoid anything on the Right!
And when our current Prime Minister is rightfully restored on the night of the election, my face, along with Alice’s, will look something like this (I’ll have to imagine it though because no doubt she’ll be fast asleep in her cot.)
She’ll be both surprised and amazed that the Australian people really did, once again, do the decent thing and save our future. After all, it’s for her sake I’ll be voting Labor. The Other Side have not spoken even remotely eloquently for the children, for schools, for the community.
We will spend the night of the election roasting a sizeable pig on spit in a suburban yard and watching the future unfold on a TV in the open (cold) air.
Let’s hope Alice has a future to applaud on Sunday morning.
