I know one, maybe 3 people who voted Liberal. The rest, no.

Re: Australian Trekbbsers

Speaking of Labor, there's a series of interviews with Keating, the first ep is on tonight.

Jesus, what a self centred, arrogant, egotistical wanker. It only reinforces why I NEVER liked him. And I'm an old Labor voter!

^ Should be warned for flaming. There's no need to be abusive.

Like everything else he did, he abused with class.

Keating is the only politician who's portrait hangs on my wall.

Nope, Keating's a dick. If you admire him, fine, I kinda get it. But I beleive the whole 'lower the tone of Parliament' thing started with him, and his interviews (you should watch them) clearly portray just how completely self-centred and arrogant he is.

Keating is over-rated. Hawke was a better PM.

Yep. I also see the point in deregulating the banks, but it was done in such a way that it made rich people richer and the poor, well...

Nope, he gets no kudos from me. I'm sure he won't lose sleep over that, but then, neither will I.

Re: Australian Trekbbsers

I'm still laughing so many years later about the 60 Minutes piece I saw on Keating and his young family when he first moved into the Lodge. They were playing up that he had young children and the whole family was having a BBQ on the Lodge grounds. There were the snags on the BBQ and Keating, apron donned, tongs in hand turning them over. A bottle of Rosella tomato sauce prominently displayed. The nice reporter lady asks one of Keating's children, a girl of about 10, "so your dad cooks up a good barbie does he?" and she replies, "Oh we've never done this before."
