Budget Latest

Today was the first budget under the new government. I couldn't help but be reminded of a song by The Beatles. The Conservatives are back - not that Scotland voted for them. Roll on independence for our nation...

I can't see the song on my work PC... is it Yellow Submarine?

I fancy a bit of 'Revolution' myself.

It's Taxman - quite appropriate...

Yes VERY appropriate song Mike.

We have had some breaking news in Australia today. We now have our first female Prime Minister....YAY!
Long may Julia Gillard reign.

I dunno, Peggy - look what happened here when we had a woman PM!

Mike I am hoping that Julia will be a totally different leader than Margaret was. She has my vote of confidence at the moment.

Kevin Rudd the previous Prime Minister who was dumped by the Labor party, started out 3 years ago as a really great visionary, but then became arrogrant and a control freak which was not acceptable. Everyone was totally fed up with him.

I am sure Julia will not walk that road. BTW she was born in Wales.
