Australian Federal Election 2007.
If I can say this in the most apolitical way possible:
Sure many of them will either have fantastic pensions or offered multiple executive board jobs, but they no longer have that influence that we have all grown accustomed to. Those who once held all the cards, now have none at all… In fact, they aren’t even allowed in the casino.
For this recent massive election, the saying “Oh, how the mighty have fallen” just does not do justice (or simian).
