G20

It's on in my home town right now.

Most residents are just glad they got the day off work so the city would be clear in case of emergency (terrorists).

I feel very ambivalent about it. I actually don't give a fork to be honest.

Meanwhile, all the media can do is tell us how Vlad has his warships off the coast, and the US has submarines in the bay.

Whoop di do.

If they blew me up today i don't think I'd care anyway.

That's because you don't understand the impact this meeting will have on you. Neither do I.
I suspect most people don't either, just a few pundits, economists, and tw.

I'm pretty sure that if our whiney pm is anything to go by, the rest of the world thinks we're a pack of idiots. They will probably have a secret meeting somewhere else without him next time.

Don't think so Ali, from what I've been reading Abbott has been included in all the secret meetings lately.

Adolescent is the characterization. Here's a somewhat sympathetic single page analysis in plain language: Australia suffers another cringe-worthy moment during G-20 summit

Those who see Australia as both the largest island and smallest continent can distance themselves from their PM with this play on words ... No man is our island.

The man is a complete idiot. If he's the best representative our country can find, we're in shit deeper than anyone else. As if the rest of the world wants to hear him complain about how the people think he's being mean to them. Wah fucking wah!
