In an idle moment, EoR has been wandering around the propaganda sites for the world's most boring election ever. EoR was interested in each major party's science policy.
The Australian Labor Party has a picture of Our Julia defiantly gazing in a totally different direction from the Suited Men of her party, as well as lots of pictures of smiling happy people, but no science policy that EoR could find.
The Liberal Party has a picture of Mr Rabbit defiantly gazing in a solitary way and fewer pictures, but no science policy that EoR could find.
The Greens have a tiny picture of Chistine Milne in a sidebar, and an image of 'scientists' (you can tell they're scientists because they're in white coats and holding test tubes), and a whole page of 35 science and technology principles.
Both Labor and the Liberals are failing Australia in their visionless poll-driven drive to mediocrity.
