Both make my skin crawl....
Howards blind, American influenced, approach to both foreign and domestic policy needs to be ended. He has really tarnished our international reputation and put Australia on the world stage for all the wrong reasons.
His recent alliance with the Catholic Church and the setting up of additional Catholic Universities, whilst the public education system is starved, is a vile, perverse injustice.
Democracy....in my book, was founded on the notion of separation of Church and State...Howards definition appears to be very different to mine.
Both parties have dreadful education funding policies...as a teacher i am disgusted with both approaches.
And, as a gay man I am viewed as a second class citizen by both, so I cannot give my vote to either.
Neither leader represents ME as a voter...so I will be steering away from both....as much as our voting system allows.
The Labor party have struck a notable deal with the GREENS so my GREEN VOTE will be heading the way of the LABOR party by default....a thought that does not make me happy, but that is the nature of a two-party preferred system....what can you do.
I hope many more voters vote GREEN...it sends a nice disatisfied message to the major parties.
