Labor election victory

Not that I've been avoiding our own national news today :-(

... but have been particularly drawn to what's happened in Australia over the weekend.

Kevin Rudd does appear to have clinched a pretty emphatic victory, and I think the removal of John Howard from the international stage could have quite an impact - particularly on the green agenda.

I've really enjoyed Nick Bryant's (from the BBC) blog that's been running for the duration of the campaign - great example of a well-informed, running commentary on a big political event as it happens.

I'm convinced that good blogging-journalism like Nick's (and many of the other BBC correspondents) will become pretty valuable source material for future historians.
