Aussie Politics...A Novelty Story

How much do you guys outside Australia know about it? From your news I reckon it's mostly snakes and spiders and the occasional story about boozy fun. What's been unusual recently is that there has been a little coverage of Australian politics internationally--first Julia Gillard gave an inspiring speech about Tony Abbott's sexism then she went to India and fell over in heels. That's right Australia, people are as interested in our politics at the moment as they were a few years ago in South Korean politics when their parliamentarians had a brawl in which they threw their lunch at each other! The last time people were this interested in our politics was when Kevin Rudd was caught allegedly eating his snot.

So, degree of meaningfulness of international opinion on domestic affairs of small nations...0%
