The Australian answer to George Bush is on electoral trial, so it's time to get all your Aussie mates down to Australia House this week where they can vote. John Howard has supported the war in Iraq and would quite happily invade Iran or even Norway if Bush told him. He has famously played the race card at successive elections to stay in power. His environmental record sucks. The Murray-Darling river system is drying up and even the breweries have been told to use recycled water to produce Australia's most famous export after Kylie and Rolf Harris, the "tinnie". Yet despite the threat of global warming, Howard's government until recently has been fighting the Kyoto agreement tooth and nail.
