The Lucky Country
from the Guardian UK
This article says we shouldn't complain, things are rosy. Perhaps that is because we dig up Australia and send it overseas. We are net importers of food. And have record debt. And the Government are thinking of taxing superannuation three times. once when you earn it as a gross, once when you withdraw it and once when you live on it. Nice. Correct me if I'm wrong.
The league reads articles like this with a healthy dose of salts. If we ran our household budget like the Australian Government we'd be bankrupt.
Abysmal always looks good next to atrocious. Perhaps that is why Abbott and Gillard look good together. Which ever way you put the analogy it works.
