Well done Australia!

WARNING: Contains material which may be offensive to people called Kevin.

Spot the difference.

At last, Australia has woken up and voted out Prime Minister John 'Penfold' Howard after an inexplicable eleven years and four (four!) terms. So far so good, but they have evicted the shrewish, whining accountant in favour of Prime Minister Kev. There's something about being called Kevin which just doesn't go with the words 'Prime Minister', isn't there? (I've realised that I have four friends and a relative called Kevin. I am now running for cover.)

As an aside, what does it say about the Commonwealth's opinion of Australia that they decided to continue with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Conference, currently taking place in Uganda, on the same day as the Australian election? Who is representing Australia at the conference? The Governor General?
