"I mean, politics a who gives a f*ck?"

Yesterdays Crikey Daily had some quality quotes from Alexander Downer(Australians Foreign Affairs minister). The one above shows exactly what Australians think about the running of our country and why politicians get away with murder in Australia because really "who gives a f*ck?"

other class A quotes
"Yes, in Australia it's all a little out of control. You read some things, and you get so frustrated. They've completely missed the point of what you're doing or saying, and portrayed it as somehow fascistic or cruel... You can really understand how some governments get to the point where they say, 'enough is enough' – no more media freedom!"
and this
"And anyway, I've always thought newspapers were the wrong way around... You should start with the sports pages, then the weather, the gossip sections, business and then, finally, politics. The same goes for news on the television."
this is where the "who gives a" punchline is delivered, what a comed... buffo.... funny guy.
Then Downer at his toffy best
"We could somehow send a suicide bomber koala into Kangaroo Island... But we'd need to get all of the koalas in the same place first."
when talking of the over population of the Koalas on Kangaroo Island.
