It seems the new Australian government is concentrating on the "Three E's" - Education, Environment and Economy.

Giving a prominent Environmental activist the position of Environment Minister is also a promising move that they are serious about their commitments too. Although I do wonder if I'll ever not think of Midnight Oil's 80's hit "Beds Are Burning" whenever I hear him talk :p

Good luck to them and I hope more countries, inclduing my own, wise up to this with actions of their own one day.

OH NO!
How to make a girl feel ancient!

I first saw midnight oil at Ziggy's night club in Wellington, a strange little alternative rock venue that had great music (Midnight Oil and Split Enz and a few other antipodean bands that went on to become massive all played there) and served only healthy fruit juice and wonderful cake!

The last time I saw them they had already developed a bit of a following. I was 19 and living on the hill up above Oriental Bay, and they were playing on a raft out in the bay below my flat as part of a mini festival organised by Radio Windy.

I trotted down the 126 steps to the bay, it was a blistering hot day, and the beach was packed, so I waded out into the water, which was lovely and warm, and saw Midnight Oil standing up to my neck in the sea, and occasionally relaxing and floating on my back.

And now one of them is a politician. Rock Stars should die before they get old!
