Sitting at the traffic lights this morning, watching the pedestrians, I had a sudden idea. You've noticed the rise in popularity of the 'gopher' - the motorised scooter beloved by the elderly. Well maybe it's time they worked for their pensions. Gophers could be fitted with blades underneath, and whenever the old folks venture out to shop or bowl or whatever, they can be mowing the footpaths and median strips as they go.
Another thought. If the Labor Party was a person it would be locked up in a psychiatric ward for inflicting self-mutilation.
