Despite contemporary Australian politics' pig headed charge for the lowest common fucking denominator (and it's not even a very graceful charge) I remain hopeful.
This isn't because I have a shred of faith left in any of the parties, because I don't. It isn't even because i enjoy seeing what should be a process in which everyone is engaged in reduced to a proverbial mud slinging contest, where the winner is the person that looks most stupid.
No, it's because I'm hoping that, eventually, someone, somewhere, will sit back and say: "Fuck me, this sucks. Let's start a band!"
