Being so grimly determined to avoid mention of our political situation, I haven't updated you on our recent changes at senior levels in Australia. To whit, our new New South Wales governor(General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret'd)) and Australian governor-general (General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd)). Sure they're boring Liberal government appointments; military men instead of scholarly women but nonetheless..
And Victoria has a new (Labor) premier. I can't make a pun out of Daniel Andrews I'm afraid.
