The Thick of It

A rather nice long holiday

As those who know me will be aware I am currently in Sydney visiting the family. I also stopped off for a weekend in Malaysia on the way out for a wedding and whistle stop tour. I've not been blogging because I have been holidaying, but I have noticed a few things of note on my trip:

  • The high percentage of female political leaders in Australia is quite striking and very welcome (especially as most of them are Labor!)
  • A signer always seems to accompany politicians on TV when they speak, could we do this in the UK?
  • Political advertising on TV: I quite like it
  • People get drunk at the Sydney Cricket Ground on low strength beer
  • Kevin Pietersen gives "banter" back to the crowd: I quite like it
