Anyway, this week Margo decided that she would invite people to vote on the following categories:
- Most courageous Australian politician
- Most cowardly Australian politician
- Biggest risk-taking Australian politician
- Most effective proponent of good governance in Australia
Readers were invited to submit one professional politician in each category and one non-politician. The voting and related comments can be found here. The tallied results are here. The results say a lot about democracy in this country. Rarely will Australians enter into a real debate that requires facts and concessions. It also exposes how horrifically divided political debate is becoming in this country.
Oh yea, if anyone is wondering, Andrew Bolt is a moron and I can't think of anyone who has contributed less to the level governence in this country. Seriously, I'm pretty sure Kylie Minogue or Nicole Kidman contribute more than he does...
