As an Aussie, I wish what you said is true, but it is not. You are ignoring the recent small elections, where there was a huge shift to the Libs. You are kidding if you think Labor will stay in, despite Abbott being a complete loser and religious zealot.

There are plenty of people who want an election called, the opposition, and the opposition supporters. The opposition and their supporters ALWAYS want an election called, since they can only lose again, and might win. It is very ignorant to ever pretend otherwise.

I am guessing you do not seem to hang around conservatives at all. I wish it was wrong, but Labor are going to lose, and you are lying or deluded.

You are right, the next time a terrorist jokes about blowing up a plane, is ignored, and does actually blow up a plane, the press will have a lot of fun in the field.

And you should never, ever, joke around. You are just going to make the DHS people feel like morons when you jokes are anything more intelligent than appears on Big Bang Theory.

Do you happen to know why?

I am an android and iphone developer, so I have to have an android device. I have been stuck using a nexus one for the last 2 months, I can not wait to get a iphone again. It is a lot better than having no phone, or a non-smartphone, but a lot of stuff does suck. The maps is supposed to be better, since it doesn't use tiles, and allows caching, but I have had loads of problems with it. It often won't display the pre-cached data, the GPS is awful, slow, but generally correct when it does work. It forgets maps that I looks at 30 seconds ago. Have to zoom in and out to get it to redraw.
