Malcolm Turnbull will become Australia’s next prime minister after defeating Tony Abbott in a vote for the leadership of the Liberal Party, winning with 54 votes to 44, last night.

Arguably the worst PM in history, this man set Australia back 30 years with his sexist (3 women in his cabinet), misogynist (appoints himself as Minister for Women, consistently winks and condescends female journalists), racist (“Stop the Boats” is his most common catch phrase), anti-environmental (underhandedly trying to sell off the Great Barrier Reef to the mining industry) and anti-marriage equality agendas.

Good riddance to this out of touch and arrogant man.

It’s not all positive though, this is our fifth Prime Minister in five years. Both main political parties continue to ignore the Australian electorate’s democratic choices, to treat the Prime Ministership as a revolving door. We’ll see if this new incoming PM changes the direction of the leadership and introduces policies more in line with the majority of the Australian public’s opinions on critical issues such as immigration, same-sex marriage and the environment.

These are my fave memes circulating social media! (I put together The Simpsons #hailants meme!)




Lisa: “I’m going to become a vegetarian.”
Homer: “Does that mean you’re not going to eat pork?”
Lisa: “Yes.”
Homer: “Bacon?”
Lisa: “YES Dad!”
Homer: “Ham?” 
Lisa: “Dad, all those meats come from the same animal.”
Homer: “Right Lisa….some wonderful magical animal.” 

On a nondescript day in 2008, I asked my husband to draw me a pig.
This is what he drew me!
He then scanned it and emailed it to me at work and it made my day!
This beautiful, rotund little piggy still makes me smile! 

Happy Weekend Folks!
