Update (Monday): You go, girl.
It almost makes me feel dirty to be enjoying this so much. It’s not as if I have any belief in Krudd & Co, or parliamentary democracy generally. I just really, really fucking hated this government. So it’s very satisfying to see them finally eating shit and dying.
I’ve been wishing for this day since long before I lost all faith in conventional politics.

Politics is hard, let’s go shopping.
LET’S GO SHOPPING!!!
Why the fuck not.
Quite apart from anything else, it’ll be Good for The Economy.
I was dancing and singing until 6am on Saturday night. You’ve gotta just enjoy it for a bit before the regularly scheduled cynicism kicks back in.

It’s possibly the same in Oz.
I don’t expect anything to Change in any sense that really matters as a result of this. The Whole System is completely rotten. I realised this some time ago.
But some things will be better. Quite apart from anything else, I won’t read the news almost every single day and feel like killing certain people and/or emigrating to New Zealand.
As I said, see above. The shittiness of our newly deposed former government was extreme. It’s just a huge (if basically cheap) thrill to see them be comprehensively defeated, and to watch them suffer.
