On 24 November 2007, the Australian Body Politic had a Heart/Brain transplant. So far, it seems the patient is making a good recovery, but we shall monitor progress. As of 31 December 2007, the patient has been moved out of "Intensive Care".
There was a period of uncertainty, under Kevin Rudd, and then Julia Gillard. On 14 September 2010 Julia Gillard was sworn in as Prime Minister, by the Governor General.

It is by being quiet and polite we allow ourselves to be ignored
Dear oh dear.
Gone is the famous: "Love to Grow: Grow to Love" motto I used have as my signature block.
It might return one day.
However, we face Council selling off bits of Public Parks all around the Wingecarribee Shire. The NSW Government is destroying our Rivers and Aquifers either through their own work (SCA) or by allowing the Coal Miners to do it, while accepting huge Part 3A payments. Wollongong Council is revealed to be as corrupt as we always felt it was. Shellharbour Council is even less amenable to environmental concerns than Wollongong (and that is saying something). NSW Labor Party politicians in the Illawarra region are said to have accepted "campaign donations" from developers (Can that be true, Matt?, David?,Noreen?)
So I have changed my signature block.
THE NSW GOVERNMENT AND THE WINGECARRIBEE SHIRE COUNCIL ARE SCREWING US OVER..........REMEMBER THIS: "BY BEING QUIET AND POLITE WE ALLOW OURSELVES TO BE IGNORED"
