|A reason to be up early|
|My actual 6.12am|
I also had more visitors of the weekend kind, I think the kookas have returned just to have their photos taken.
|And somewhere over |
the hill, the sun at 6.12am
A little extra time this morning therefore I could give some thought to adding the Clive Palmer story to today's lecture. One of the things about the subjects I teach is the immediacy of the day-to-day and the challenge to relate that to the textbook content. Mr Palmer, with his party helped us today on two levels: last week we talked about minor parties and independents and the role they play; today we planned to talk a little about the history of our two major parties, the Labor Party and the Liberal Party and their antecedents, including the United Australia Party, Mr Palmer's proposed party. We worked through the requirements to register the party, and the fact he will need to do it by 13 May, if he is going to be registered in time for the 14 September election...thanks Mr Palmer, kind of.
|Sun setting, at 5.12pm|
|A steamy dinner, at 6.12pm|
Tomorrow, we do it all again...
