ramblings

Sheesh. Have I missed a bit of news lately or what! Cloning is now legal in Australia. There was some thought that an ammendment prohibiting the use of aborted foetuses would get up and then force the bill back to the Senate but that was not to be. I'm appalled at those 'Catholic' politicians who stood up and announced their Catholicism before supporting the Bill. Well done to John Howard and Kevin Rudd (the new ALP leader) for speaking against the bill.

Now that's a topic I've barely looked at either. The Labor leadership - the new dream team of Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard. And Pauline Hanson formerly of One Nation is back and goign to run for Parliament again. This time not against Aboriginals but against Muslims. Gosh she is a nutter. Maybe she is just short of money again.

Then there was the great win by the Aussie cricket team on Tuesday. Taking 9 English wickets before tea then scoring 168 in a small amount of over to win the test with only 2 overs to spare. Just sensational and undoubtedly the bext win by the Aussies at Adelaide. The most exciting loss being when Australia lost by one run to the West Indies in a dubious decision by the umpire to give Craig McDermott out, caught behind.

Hopefully I ave time and motivation to write on these things this coming week.

It seems rather *typical* that those who announce their "Catholicism" before making a speech, do so immediately prior to voting for legislation that is clearly against Church teaching!
