Australia has been without a government since Saturday night, and we suspect Australians couldn’t be happier. For the last few days, Australians have interacted with each other, bought and sold goods, driven on the roads, dug holes, all the while not knowing which political party will form government. Plus, we have managed to do all this without lying to each other over who is sending the other a text message.
The XYZ’s Viewer poll regarding that little tiff over the rather typical leftist antics, (i.e., lying) in the week before the election, has shown a strong proportion of respondents would prefer not to vote again (77%) although 47% do think charges should be laid over the presentation of misleading information. That said, of all the illegal things Labor has done, Medicaregate would have to rank somewhere in the middle.
Regardless of all this, we will need a government at some stage to come together to pay off our debt. After that, there isn’t much to do, other than guard the border. So if you have been feeling a little lighter over the last few days, we would like to ask you the following question:
Australia has not had a federal government for the last few days. How much do you miss having a government?
- Like a hole in the head (34%, 28 Votes)
- Taxation is theft (27%, 22 Votes)
- Like ham in a halal snack-pack (20%, 17 Votes)
- Like a fart in an elevator (14%, 12 Votes)
- Like a kick in the teeth (5%, 4 Votes)
Total Voters: 83
