Midnight Oil burns Howard's End.

Mark Latham, the Labour Party leader in Australia, has persuaded Peter Garrett, the former singer for Midnight Oil to run for parliament.

Smashing! Hopefully it will help to unify Greens and Labour to work together to defeat Howard and his minions.

The Bush administration has exposed themselves to be hypocrites... after making a stink about Kerry claiming support from politicians in other countries, both Bush and Colin Powell made veiled threats to Australians about what the U.S. might do should Latham beat Howard and withdraw Australian forces from Iraq. There is reason to suspect that these threats could backfire on the Bush administration, however, and lead to a backlash that topples Howard.

The Bush administration's overt interference and bullying has guaranteed that the main issue in the Australian election won't *just* be about Iraq, but about Australian independence itself.
