Cate Blanchett joins the sorry:
Cate Blanchett loves living in her homeland of Australia – despite her frustration that Prime Minister John Howard was recently re-elected.
Despite the Conservative leader’s win, the Aviator actress believes good can be born out of political opposition as it forces people to become more aware of issues and forces them into action.
Blanchett says, “I do love it (Australia), but many people are very saddened by the recent re-election of PM John Howard – what it condones.
“But one has to be optimistic because good things can come out of a frustration with an administration. It politicises you.”
Interesting theory. Howard has now been elected four times. By the way, Alexander Downer today becomes Australia’s longest serving foreign minister. Tomorrow—barring the saddened masses suddenly rising up and forcing him from office—Howard becomes Australia’s second-longest serving Prime Minister. We might have a drink on Tuesday night to celebrate.
