Shorten said he would build a full fibre network across Australia if Labor wins the election. Even though parliament sessions haven't ended yet for the election campaign (ours tend to go for only a month due to population size), they're gaining steam.
Sorry I haven't said much about anime this season, but I haven't felt much of a buzz about it compared to last season.
And...what do you know...an election is announced today for July 2. I knew it.
The commission into the construction sector being blocked in the Senate today along with Labor (in opposition) proposing a popular commission into the banking sector was the trigger. For 74 days, things are going to get pretty bloody over here.
Copper for the internet... yeah, that's pretty bad, lol. I hope that your next government goes with fibre networks.
And yeah, seems to be a lot of earthquakes lately. I hope that settles down. I look forward to reading more of your take on the current anime season whenever you get a chance to watch more of what you're following.
And if it seems like I'm being quiet about anime the last few days, the Kyushu earthquakes affecting the airings of the titles I chose to continue with happened. The fact they got hit twice is chilling. Apparently one also happened in Ecuador today - makes me feel fortunate I live in a place natural disasters don't happen in for the greater part.
We're headed for an early election in Australia in the very near future. And those are rare. Malcolm Turnbull has continued to earn the wrath of increasingly more disgruntled Australians for the internet plan from hell, for screwing with health funding, for trying to end superannuation, some international relations that have degraded. Abbott was responsible for a lot more but amusingly he's trying to derail Turnbull in revenge for being ousted by him.
In 2013, it looked like Labor were on the verge of political irrelevance after being a minority government in their second term. Yet the Liberals, after losing the seemingly unlosable election of 2010, may have trumped that with how they have gone from the one the middle class wanted to the ones that people are disgusted with. That usually takes more than one term. But Labor are looking set to be back in charge. I'm hoping they will change the internet plans to the original fibre networks they proposed years ago. The Liberals refuse to replace it and insist we will be staying on copper...COPPER....
Justin Trudeau is smart and charismatic. His father, Pierre, is probably Canada's smartest and most influential Prime Minister ever. It's definitely good to have effective and respected leadership on the world stage right now. It's particularly good to have leadership that gets computers and new technologies.
Apparently your current Prime Minister, Trudeau, is really impressing people internationally and most recently with his knowledge on quantum computers. Sounds like you might have a rare case of a worthy leader.
