A couple of post election observations: For no particular reason I averaged the ages of the members of Tony Abbott’s Ministry as pictured in the SMH 9 Sept and what did I find? Average age 59 years and that will mean a really elderly Ministry when the next election comes around. No information yet about the corresponding ALP front bench but in the same edition of the SMH the average age of known shadow ministers averaged – 44 years.
Then there is the matter of Mirabella fighting for her political life. A member of the last House of Representatives not thought to be rash or wild in his statements is supposed to have referred to her as the nastiest person in the House. Perhaps this explains her situation in one of the safest seats in Victoria/Australia.
