"Choose change" says Abbott- I couldn't agree more...another freaking *%#@ blue tie...

Sorry if I am sounding a little jaded, but really these guys are just bordering on the edge of downright fashion morticians...where is the colourful characters of past decades, the fashion elders, wore crazy ties and their hearts on their sleeves- these candidates are sooooo conservative! Not only has Abbott worn blue solids for 18/21 days, he has re-used the same tie 14 times...I'm losing my enthusiasm!

Rudd, well what can I say, he has mixed it up a little more, sometimes blue, a safe republican red, a showy gold and then a mediocre yellow, but I don't get any sense of personal style at the moment...

What a miserable state of the nation, I am close to giving up...death by necktie...choked by the bad tie...lassoed by mediocrity...hung by neutrality...I might move on to Katters' hat party...

Earlier I saw that Rudd, leader of the ALP was wearing a tie, not Red, not Blue...at first it appeared ...yellow...but upon further deeper forensic investigation, I can say it is in fact...

Gold...with white coin spots! Underdogs don't wear gold, I say!

I really don't know what to say, or how to say...Rudd is declaring victory! Gold has symbolised power and victory in many regimes-in ancient Egypt gold represented royalty and was symbolic of the highest order of society. In Ireland, it is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

So now, I have had a chance to see that Abbott has gone for a tie he used day2-no foulard, jacquard texture...just a dobby weave with surface interest!

What do you think?

Don't mess with fashion...more on the "Neck and Neck" Commentary.





Yesterday bought the leader of the LNP, Tony Abbott to my own neighbourhood. He is seen above with members of the local netball community and our local member Wyatt Roy, Australia's youngest member of parliament. It is of particular interest to me, the link Abbott has drawn in recent days following his description of a female member of his team as having "Sex appeal", and that he has now referred to same sex marriage, as something of a "recent fashion".  I just add...

The phenomenon of western “fashion” in dress began during the Middle Ages, and referred to political and social change. Furthermore, “Fashion” has been defined as “a pattern of change in which certain social forms enjoy temporary acceptance and respectability only to be replaced by others” (Blumer 1968) 


I suggest Abbott knows fashion very well!

1st week of political mayhem...

So it's one week since Rudd finally called the much anticipated Federal election. My facebook friends have followed my weeks commentary on the "Ties" of the 2 main candidates...but there has been an enormous revelation tonight that women are turning away from the KRudd, and I can only believe it is because the colour of his ties over the past few days have erred on the warm palette and red, is a colour of aggression violence and anger...just saying!
