Yes, I've been quite unable to decide whose government (and their decisions) I've been more ashamed of. The USA, UK and Australia have all had their moments, but in light of recent events my mind has been made up.
John Howard and friends are deliberately and maliciously making Australia a worse place to live, and I am ashamed of the lot of them. Industrial relations, yet more anti-terrorism laws, voluntary student unionism and the strangling of the university system, anti-choice movement, and they'll have control of Parliament and the Senate for a couple of years yet. Sheesh.
