Outlining a Progressive Future

Improvements Coming and McGinty Quitting

Hi all,

Sorry for the lack of action over the past week or so; I have been away in Edinburgh for the weekend visiting a friend. But, I am back and ready to write some more and really get this blog going. Over the next little while you can all expect a couple of things:

  1. A discussion on creating actual democracy
  2. Hopefully some discussion on the G20 summit and the problem of capitalism (depending on whether I can get my brain to work)
  3. Some improvements in the format of the blog, with some better categorisation allowing for easier searching of topics and hopefully some better formatting.

Lastly, for anyone interested in Australian politics you may like to note that former West Australian Attorney General Jim McGinty has announced that he will be retiring from politics. Although this is not really that interesting or surprising it will provide an interesting election battle in a month or so time. For those of you who don’t know, Jim holds the seat of Fremantle, which at the last election the Greens almost took (losing out by less than 1% as they got less primary vote than the Liberals). With there being a very good chance that the Liberals won’t run in this seat we could see the Greens take their first lower house seat in WA; one that they would have a very good chance of holding on to. One to watch!
