Well… it’s nearly 1pm and it’s 32 degrees. It’s warm – probably feels like that because it’s been about 30 degrees since i started working. It’s a few degrees colder in the office (which is good).
public holiday tomorrow, which is good. Although if we should have a holiday for what is essentially Invasion Day is a bit undecided. Back in the 80s and 90s we would have had this debate – but Australian society has headed towards the lunatic right and seems incapable of proper thought, argument and debate. It also okay with human rights violations, torture and the imprisonment of children.
As we increasingly move towards an education system that’s based on ability to pay, not academic ability – i don’t think it’s a time for celebrating Australia as it is.
I’ll be with friends tomorrow, enjoying some time together, as we are fond to do.
