Dear Queensland friends,
Fuck a bunch of Jesus, that was a bad day yesterday.
May I recommend moving to Melbourne? It's got an arts scene and laneways and less homophobia (not none, of course, but less) and a bunch of other good things, and rents are apparently going down. Sure, beer costs 5 bucks a pot or more most places, but nothing's perfect.
And while it's true that Victoria also has a Coalition government, they're a bunch of lazy buttplugs who are basically just running the state using Labor policies 'cos they can't be fucked writing their own. Plus Labor has some chance of winning a state election down here in the next decade, which is a lot more than we can say for QLD.
I mean, goddamn. Goddamn.
Anyway, think about it, okay? And if you do move down, buy blankets and jackets, it gets balls cold down here. Sorry.

Well, apart from cattle grazing in the Alpine, pretty much making wind farms impossible, giving tens of millions to a new brown coal power plant, amending the Equal Opportunity Act so that religious organisations can discriminate against cleaners, giving the Nurses a bloody hard time etc.
Well yeah, apart from that.

And apart from closing down the effective and successful program your wife was employed by.

But seriously, Qld is a disaster zone of a different making now and it'll become worse now Clive Palmer is Premier (next stop PM).
Much of the problem lies with an crisis
within social democracy.
