Yes, the storm is directly over Canberra right now?

So as you go about your daily lives ? getting the kids to school, thinking about what’s for dinner or whether you should hold off paying the electricity bill until the next pay cheque goes in.

As you ponder whether to reassess your mortgage repayments now that interest rates have dropped again.

Or if you can now afford that kitchen renovation you’ve wanted for years.

Whether the next doctor’s appointment will bring better news than the last one. 

Whether the family feud that’s tearing you apart will ever heal?

As you go about your normal, everyday life, you can be certain of one thing ? be it Labor or Liberal running the show, Federal politics are nothing more than a comical sideshow yet again.
