Kiss the boot

Nah, we invented tall poppy syndrome down here. We prefer the underdog, even when he's humping our leg. The quality of the local political class is as low as the rest of "the free world". Like other democracies, the incentives to participate select for the wrong personalities.

Hopefully the dropbears will get 'em.
