  1. I'm enrolled, but I can't help thinking that I'm just skewing the results. After all, I know squat about politics, any decision I make is bound to be the worst possible one for the country. Ah well, I can always donkey vote ... the question is which dirty limerick to write on the ballot paper.

  2. Not wanting to skew your opinion but you could try Vote 1 - Australian Labor Party.

    Limericks will only let the scumbag get back in - which is the worst thing for the country.


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment ! :-)
