The humans, not the furbabies.
Watched the 'debate' where they didn't actually debate each other...just answered questions with same tired trotted out slogans (stop the boats, conscious vote, rail infrastructure, more roads) and same policies that are out there in the aether already.
Make it a proper debate with ALL the parties involved, let's hear from all of them what are waving their hands shouting "Pick Me! Pick Me!"
Otherwise it's great for crochet...and reading my copy of Girt by David Hunt!
1920 - Louisa Lawson, feminist, suffragette, editor, writer, poet, popped her clogs today.
She's probably better known these days as Her What Spawned writer and poet Henry Lawson but she was a powerful and talented personality in her own right.
1921 - a year to the day after Louisa shuffled from this mortal coil the Australian Federation of Women Voters was founded by Bessie Rischbieth, which would have made Henry's mum proud.
The AFWV immediately successfully lobbied PM silly Billy Hughes to have chickybabes included in delegations to the League of Nations Assembly.
1806 - Captain Philip Gidley King hung up his hat as 3rd Governor of NSW and made way for the incoming boss, Captain William Bligh....which all ended in tears but that's another story.
1974 - Iconic band Jethro Tull was rockin' around the Fair Isle of Oz and over the ditch in NZ; on this date they were actually on the Christchurch Town Hall stage, having a ball-tearer of a time.
1829 - Perth was pupped as a place.
1971 - A ruckus in the ranks saw PM Billy McMahon kick former-PM John Gorton to the kerb for daring to complain in the media about gossipy leakers in the cabinet when he was ruling the Isle Girt By Sea.
I shall leave you with this lovely snap of Colleen Hewitt gracing the Royal Hotel in Dunolly.
