Interesting AU political heatmap

    Australia has essentially been a Labour dominated country. Even though Federal has had a stronger LNP presence, the States have been the reverse.

    Some may say this provides some form of balance, I would hazard a guess economic data overlayed would show that perhaps the balance is more a deadlock and denies us any collegiate progression and limits social or economic reforms of magnitude to small skirmishes and petty irrelevance and as a result we have drifted into a global backwater in this part of the world.

    If this is the case then such a waste of what was such an opportunity. It will be a hard one to climb out of over the next few decades and on what economic platforms will this ride, who knows.

    The above map came out of Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politics_of_Australia
