Independent – Howard rocked by smear scandal as defeat looms: John Howard, Australia’s Prime Minister, was fighting for his political life yesterday as details emerged of an attempt by senior members of his Liberal Party to smear the opposition Labour Party and whip up anti-Muslim feeling in a key marginal seat.

You’ll want to read that article in full. It describes what is more or less an offline sock-puppeting… and yes, someone (you’ll never guess from which side) plays the ‘stalker’ card.


Good luck today, Australia. Have a schooner for me when* that little cockroach Howard – who has been surviving and thriving on dirty politics for more than 20 years – finally gets Baygon-ed.

(*So I’m an optimist. Sue me. In fact, I’m even going to lay on a happy song, just for the hell of it. Be warned that this music video contains both pigs and humans.)

UPDATE (24 Nov) – BBC – Labor claims Australia poll win: The Labor Party has claimed victory in Australia’s election, after early vote counts suggested Prime Minister John Howard had lost his parliamentary seat.

Ooooh… I bet hope that stings. OK, time for a really, really, really happy song.

    Dirty politics, can't stand it. Worse than dirty streets. That reminds me I dropped you an e-mail a short while ago. Do feel free to respond to my survey too, if you wish.

    The little rodent's campaign was full of dirty tricks and pork-barrelling but thank Christ this time the Aussies saw through him. He was even desperate enough to finally acknowledge the Aboriginal problems – which was a complete 360 of policy. It really is a marvellous day that we've finally outed this nasty and devious lot.
