I work with an Australian who comments on the politics there quite a bit. I think he just went to vote at the embassy in Tokyo yesterday. His says in some ways it's all a bit academic, because Australia is in pretty good shape, at least financially.

Yes Tony Abbott, butt of endless jokes, and not for lack of trying. I am not sure how someone with his lack of people skills among other things ever got to be head of a major political party.
