Beds are Burning

Imagine Peter Garrett as your Senator.

Won't happen mate. He's Australian, and he's already an MP, and the Labor Shadow Minister for Climate Change, Environment, Heritage and the Arts. He's not running at the moment, but he's campaigning for the Labor candidate for Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd. We don' t have anyone in our federal government quite like Garrett. Pity.

Maybe, like me, you remember him fondly as the charismatic lead singer for Midnight Oil. They managed to score a top ten hit that had people singing and dancing about the environment without always knowing it. Clever lads.
