You got that right Ash, "and by extension the rest of the world" ... I doubt any of you would have any real idea of how the rest of the world comes to a grinding halt when the outcome is close to being announced, because it really does effect us, especially our troops and their families. We are all glued to our tv's flicking from channel to channel seeking updates, indications etc. Just the same as y'all would be I suppose if Russia or China were the Super Power
For the first time in my very long voting life (it's compulsory over here), I'll be tearing up my ballot paper next year if they don't get someone decent to stand, and that's really saying something, because I am a very staunch voter!!!
Those who're in doubt about voting, or just never bother, how can you leave the decision of who's going to run your country to others? I just don't get it?
