South Australian Election Time

The South Australian state government election campaign for 2010 is now officially underway…

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair South Australia, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge broke new mutiny,
Where civil blood made civil hands unclean,

But the voters, no longer the shy mouses,
Awaking the fateful Sunday-after, said
“A plague upon both of your houses!,
We voted for the Greens instead!”

My apologies to The Bard.  It should be an interesting campaign, certainly the most interesting for many years, what with the Outlaw Bikies, Michelle Chantelois, Gamers’ Party et al all vying for our attention along with the main parties.
