When you’ve lost me, you know there’s a problem.

You all may have noticed the conspicuous lack of Election commentary on my blog. I am as surprised as the rest of you — after all, I had great plans of educating the ill-informed about how “preferences just flow” in Elections; I had considered a rant about John Howard being a snotty little shit (ok, well I have done that one before), I thought about a blog about Mark I-only-agree-with-him-50%-of-the-time-at-best-but- he’s-better-than-the-alternative Latham… but, I can’t explain it.

I completely lack inspiration about this campaign. In 1998 I did letterbox drops for my local member at 2 in the morning, manned the polling booth, and got pissed at the commiseration party. In 2001 I was less active but still as passionate, if not burned out by ALP bullshit. But this time around, I am a different person. I am a person who has woken up to Politics. OK, at least I have woken up to power and how it corrupts.

Is it wrong to be a political person, yet not give a shit about an election?

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
