So there is a truckie (or two) that’s already hit the road to travel to Canberra to declare no confidence in the current Gillard-Brown-Windsor-Oakeshott-Milne Government. (There are a few others I could lob in, but you get the general idea, most of us aren’t too sure who is actually in charge of the country at the moment.)
It warms the very cockles of my heart to see so many ordinary Aussies (that happen to drive humungous trucks) hitting the highways to make their voices heard. As a staunch defender of the little guy I think its only right to give them a decent plug and to encourage everybody to join in on the action.
So if you have an electric scooter, a skateboard, a tractor, a car, a Winnebago, bicycle, ute, horse ‘n’ cart, an ambo or Mac truck, you can hook up as part of this convoy… the details of which are located over at Just Grounds, party central for the No Confidence Convoy.
The supremely excellent Jo Nova has also given the ol’ convoy of no confidence a decent plug and, being the Picasso that she is, has created this map outlining the 11 routes that our Aussie truckies will take as they converge on Canberra:

At the start of Australia’s most disastrous government ever, Joolya said “game on”.
Guess she should have been careful what she wished for.
