Australia heads to the polls today.

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Gazman, Sep 6, 2013.

  1. Australia is in the grip of election fever (okay, it's more like a nasty, weeping rash), and today we all go off to our local schools to cast our votes.

    I really, really wish Carrots was an option.

    We have many fine Congresspeople we would be glad to provide to you on extended loan!
  8. Something tells me I'm going to be rather depressed when the results come in...

  9. :D

    First time voting today. Wasn't particularly interesting.
  10. Dissatisfaction is guaranteed.
  11. This was the first time I've ever felt compelled to fill out the bottom section of the white ballot paper.

    If carrots had been on there, I would have put a big number one next to them. In fact, having seen some of the candidates on there, I might start a Carrots Party for the next election, just to see how many votes we get.

    And yes, I also see disappointment and dissatisfaction in my near future. :*(
  12. You haven't heard? The Warden got ousted quite some years ago. The inmates are now running the prison.
  13. For years I've wanted them to put "None of the above" as a choice on the ballot papers...

    disparaging the boot is a bootable offence.
  18. Woke up this morning to see the sky hadn't fallen. Can't bear to watch the news though.
