'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

Walked past the No Carbon Tax rally in Martin Place today.
Saw Alan. He got such a warm welcome. Fantastic. Especially when he uttered his inspirational War Cry:
"Say it, people. Tell her. Let Julia Gillard know we only have two words for her....
Such a catch cry. No wonder the 500 outraged people in attendance at a Friday lunch time rally were so moved.
I thought Angry Anderson's "This will be the first time since 1854 that blood will be spilt on Australian soil in the name of people's rights" was a good line, but most of the people in attendance were of such an age that they were still shaking their heads because of their over-worked hearing aids after his rendition of "We can't be beaten".
If anyone needs a spare chromosome, a lot of the rally participants seemed to have a few left over.
Oh, and it was great that the organisers had the rally in Martin Place so Alan could walk up Struggle Street from the Toaster, and be back in time for David's soup for lunch. ''David makes the best soup on the planet. On the planet. Will you have a little bread?''

Anyway yeah, the Libs need to tone it down RE carbon tax.
Such is their hyperbole, they're leaving themselves open to the line of 'the sky hasn't fallen in'.
That's a horribly low bar for a policy mind you, but they're leaving themselves exposed.
Had to walk past Campbell Newman and a media crew on my way to the shop this morning. Good thing I'm moving out of the Ashgrove electorate.

I live in The Gap at the moment but am paying rent at a place in Highgate Hill that I'm slowly moving my stuff into.
Nice spot out there at The Gap. Was out at Walkabout Creek a few weeks back with some students.
And I live at Newmarket, where we have had to suffer with our train station upgrade for the last four months. All thanks to Can-do pork. Still, it'll be good when it's finished.
