As a Foreign Minister He Makes a Good Singer

Of course, I'm referring to Alexander Bummer, er Downer. Australia signed a non-aggression pact to become a member of ASEAN and Mr Downer did a great job of singing in public. It wasn't quite karaoke as he had some cards to remember the words and not an autocue. But I think that he has far more talent as a singer than he ever will as Minister for Foreign Affairs.

I was quite surprised in fact. Perhaps we will get some very important trading concessions with our closest neighbours, whether they like it or not.

I can't believe he sang, I remember the last time he sang.. I am surprised the others signed a non aggression pact with the man, based on his singing.. I'd become very aggressive!

it is unfortunate that Dicko isn't on Australian Idol. I prefer him to Mark, but I know he would say: "I'm sorry you won't make it to Sydney!"

Have you used DHL or UPS or similar services?

Are they any better?

We use DHL at work and they seem reasonably good - although we don't use them for courier services within Australia - only when we send overseas.
