Well, my part in this election is over. Like many other Australians in the UK I made my way to London to visit Australia House to cast my ballot. Also like many other Australians in these parts I’ll be tied into satellite TV and teh intertubes on Saturday morning to follow the vote count.
I’ll be liveblogging the coverage from the ALP abroad party in London. If there are any LP readers in London on Saturday come along and say hi – I’ll be the one that looks like a non-cartoon version of my gravatar with their face either buried in a pint or a laptop screen.
So, given that this election potentially marks a momentous occasion for all Australians everywhere, does anyone have any good drinking games to get us through the count?
Here are some potential rules:
- Whenever a commenter mentions the words “Eden-Monaro” and “bellweather” in the same sentence you must drink.
- Whenever Maxine McKew gets a mention, drink.
- Whenever the phrase “me-too” is used, drink.
- If the government changes hands drink and cheer!
Any other suggestions, leave them in the comments…
