    Not quite yet 😉

    Queen Margrethe won't abdicate until 14 January, during a Council of State starting at 14:00 CET.

    At 15:00, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen will then proclaim the new King of Denmark from the balcony of Christianborg Palace.

    I wish there were more ceremony involved, I would have popped over to support our girl becoming Queen.

    The Ashton By election result is yet another nail in the coffin for Dutton and the Liberal party.   Labor got home easily in a so called shock result as normally a safe conservative seat but Australians are proving that voters are turning away in droves from the far right that have taken over the Liberal Party.  So proud to be Australian at this time and also proves that Murdoch's shocking bias in the media does not cut through anymore. 

    More good news! Although its weird that all the good elections are happening after I left Australia. But at least I know it will be better when I come back.

    @Jazzy Jan My favourite part is how Peta Credlin and the Sky News bullshit artists all learn the same "lesson" from these defeats: that the conservatives, after being rejected for parties to the left of them on the political spectrum, need to go further to the right 😳😂

    :inlove::clap:  So proud of the state of Victoria who completely ignored one of the most vicious, nastiest and biased media campaigns ever by the Murdoch press and overwhelmingly re- elected Labor.  Murdoch's paper and sky news were relentless in their attacks on Dan Andrews and the Labor Party.  Australia now has completely rejected the conservative party in virtually every state.  NSW has their election in the new year and it suggests Labor will romp home there as well.   @San @swimtoshore @Creepy Insane Person  @Bitch I'm Christian @Leebf @cardiganstarlet @Michael. @xtaticboy82and @Paul- I bet you are all happy.  Murdoch is getting rubbished everywhere on line and his influence in Australia is truly over.   @Kim  I know too how much you detest Murdoch and this was such a great result.  Australia has become such a progressive country. 

    Great news! I was back in Melbourne last week, made sure I voted! Its astonishing how the media was sooooooooo one-sided, and now having to make up excuses for being so out of touch with the people. Why cant they just accept that voters just dont want that rubbish.

    It was actually nice to be living outside Australia and not having to listen to Australian (politics) news all the time, but when I got back to Australia, the biggest news headline was all about some car accident from years ago, than Dan was not in. The media went to any length they could to try and pull him down. Luckily the people of Victoria are (mostly) smarter than that.

    Im pretty sure the Monarchy will end one way or another within the next 20 years tops. 
     

    But while it’s still there I just want to say I quite enjoy sitting on my couch, watching the spectacle while being aware I’m witnessing something that’s so very obsolete and probably happening for the last time ever. It feels very historic and surreal. Thank you citizens of the UK for financing this. 😘

    Agreed. Has everything in the UK just stopped? Nobody is working or going to school? nothing else to do but watch the coffin and people marching day after day....

    To the outside (German) observer it seems like the Monarchy is fairly popular in England itself, but very unpopular in the rest of the Kingdom and the Commonwealth. I don’t get why they don’t call it a day and just give up all the non British countries to be just Monarchs of Britain and that’s it? Or would the British people resent the idea? 

    Australia had a referendum to become a republic over 20 years ago. While the majority wanted to become a republic, our Prime Minister at the time (a deep monarchist) asked the referendum question in a way that divided opinion about how a new president would be chosen, so the referendum failed. It was bare politics, that's the only reason. it then only felt that asking the question again (properly) would be somehow personally offensive to dear old Lizzie, so I think most Australians understood that once the queen died, we would move pretty quick to become a republic. I hope it happens soon. Although I think it will be inevitable - I Charles will gradually become less and less popular, and within 5 years he will hand over to William in an attempt to rescue public support but it will be too late.

     It will be as if the LNP don't exist the next few years. It's great.

    The even better news is that they are going with Dutton as leader. That will mean they stay in opposition for many many more years. Even losing the election they don't seem to have learnt any lesson.

    In a way I think the U.S. are a lost cause. With all the things going on there, the looming threat of Roe v Wade being overturned and mass shootings every day and several other social issues, all decent people should be on the barricades. But all I see is complacency. Especially from the Democrats. They should be fighting tooth and nail but all I see is "if they go low, we go high". At this point they are so high in the clouds they no longer see what's happening on the ground. And it would be so easy to discredit their Republican counterparts. Most of them are complete nutjobs and all it takes is to speak truth, all it takes is to speak up; But they don't. It puzzles me why. 

    It puzzles me how a country that likes to tell all other countries what to do in relation to human rights, womens rights, etc thinks it OK to keep living in the dark ages where women cant decide about their own bodies and kids cant go to school without fear of being shot.

    Yanis was my economics lecturer at first year uni. He was an average economist, and an ineffective finance minister. I guess he is entitled to his views, but this sounds like the worst approach. If Putin was really only concerned about NATO membership, he could have removed any reasons for nations wanting to join NATO. Instead he chose the opposite. It's clear that's not really his end game.

    He can leave anytime he wants. He is not a prisoner. 

    I will even drive him to the airport.

    What's more disgusting is that, because he's a 'tennis star', he gets his case heard by the court immediately. If he really wants to come into Australia, how about he get to the end of the line of all the hundreds of other people who are here in detention waiting to have their cases heard. Perhaps he could pay for the legal fees of all the other people staying in the same hotel.

    Still waiting for mine as I’m part of the botched Australian roll out. I’m under 40 but have been able to secure my first Pfizer mid August.

    It really is bad. I got both my Pfizer shots in June, as soon as it was open to 40-50yo in Victoria. So while Im kinda happy I was able to get it, its shocking that I (someone fit and health and relatively youngish) was in the first 3% of Australians to get fully vaccinated, while millions of eldery, disabled, front line workers, etc are still waiting.

    Hope you are doing OK in Sydney. Our thoughts are with you. ❤️

    What self-respecting man would want to put their dick into his dingleberry forest? 🤮

    I assume the only reason he is 'not gay anymore' is not his choice, its because not a single gay man would even want to be in the same room as him, let alone sleep with him.
