On the day after Australia voted with a resounding “meh”, I opened the weekend papers quite sick of the election. It’ll be days or weeks before our hung parliament is sorted out and I didn’t really want to read any more about it for the time being. Give me something else, I thought, something worldly, outside Australia and interesting. I got it.
It’s actually a story about the British government changing their minds about a big funding spend to upgrade the tourist facilities at Stonehenge. There’s a lot of people upset about it, not just druids. In all honesty, I imagine the druids would like all the tourist trappings taken away and the site left the hell alone. But still, that headline did put a smile on my dial this morning.
