Who will I vote for?

In less than two weeks Australia has a Federal Election. I have to confess that I usually decide who to vote for at the last minute. From a Christian point of view I always find something to strongly disagree with most parties and candidates. There has been some good discussion on Christian blogs about this election. This excellent post by Nathan Campbell links to relevant ones. [I particularly liked Simone Richardson's one about Christian values]. He also has a good post on why he is not voting for Family First, despite being a Christian.
To US readers this really highlights some significant cultural differences with Australia.

    Perhaps more Aussie physicists should think of taking up politics - Ross?
