Election. What Election?

21 November 2007

Conversation at work today:

Colleague (seeing my “I’m Supporting Maxine” badge):  “Who’s Maxine”

Me:  “Maxine McKew.  She’s hoping to oust John Howard from his seat on Saturday:

Colleague:  “Is she a Liberal?”

Me:  “You aren’t that interested in politics, then?”

Colleague:  “No.  I’m going to vote for the Greens”




  1. One of the downsides of compulsory voting. As the Chaser would say [This Person Votes!] At least they weren’t going to vote Liberal!!

  2. I agree – if the Greens are “in” then all the better. “Vote for the coolest party and don’t bother about the issues.”
