about time

It was just announced that Melbourne has elected the first ever Green candidate to the House of Representatives in Australia. While the overall results of the election are still up in the air (and looking pretty dire) I am quite proud to live in Melbourne right now. It also looks like Australia may have its first indigenous member in the House of Rep's as well.
Not being able to vote here has meant my interest in and knowledge of this Country's politics is rather abysmal, but despite this, and the television coverage being convoluted and boring, it's difficult not to get caught up in the midst of a national election.
