Thoughts of a middle aged man…..5 August 2013

Australia is now in election mode, 33 days of dribble and broken promises, by the time September 7 comes around will we really care. I have said before that I am a swinging voter, and this time I am swinging towards the Coalition and Tony Abbott. It is time for a change, the ALP have really stuffed it up, the Coalition will make mistakes as well but along the way they will also correct some of the mistakes the ALP have made, while maintaining any good policies the ALP may have put in place. I say give the Coalition two terms at least, they cannot hope to correct everything in just one term, and then at the third election keep them in if they are doing OK, and if not swing back to the ALP.

One thing I do not agree with is the changing of a duly elected Prime Minister mid-term. I know it is the party we vote for, but to be perfectly honest it also has a lot to do with the leader, whether we like it or not it’s a fact. In saying that, and I know I am going to come across as a misogynistic hypocrite, I am so glad the ALP dumped Julia Gillard, but then again she did cast the first stone.

I am not feeling the best again tonight, this lurgy is just hanging around, it hasn’t quite got me but it’s not ready to stop trying either. Maybe after a good night’s sleep I will feel better in the morning, right now I don’t feel like going to work tomorrow but I do have a meeting tomorrow night. At least I can look forward to my day off on Wednesday.

Is everyone enjoying Big Brother this year, they are quite an eclectic bunch. For some reason I am drawn towards Tim, he is as annoying and confrontational as anyone I have ever met, but there is just something about him. The sisters that went in tonight I can take or leave. I quite like Drew as well, he does need to wash his hair but I think he is a nice boy, actually all the boys seem a likeable bunch with the exception of Rohan.

My head is starting to ache, I need to go to bed. Goodnight and thank you for reading, and welcome to my new readers.
