Well I called this yesterday. And while we're on the subjects, what do you reckon Howard thought about Kennett's council amalgamations? Undemocratic? Unnecessary?
The letter to the SMH that I blogged yesterday very accurately described the effects of the recent fervour for undemocratic behaviour by governments of all stripes, and the current council amalgamation effort in Queensland certainly qualifies. However, for Howard to damn it is pretty funny: after all, he's the one who knows all about subverting democratic checks and balances.
