The bottom is falling out of the Australian dollar as the meerkats compare the prospect of a well hung parliament following the weekend's election, where the worlds largest convict colony couldn't be arsed to vote properly.
Julia Gillard, Clarice Starling look-alike, is the current Labour prime minister, and Tony Abbott, leader of the opposition are currently trying to win over the support of the "people" by buying a round of Fosters or Four X.
Labour, who prefer Fosters lager; have the Fosters spokesman, Crocodile Dundee, on walkabout with his bush tucker billycan in the outback bush, handing out cans of chilled Fosters to the aborigines in and effort to get them to the polling booths.
The opposition Castelmain Four X party are sticking closer to the coasts, hoping to get the young surfer dudes to vote before they all get eaten by sharks during the Summer festival of throwing yourself into the shark infested waters on a thin plank to impress your Sheila.
Investors are worried that a minority Australian government, could be held hostage by the Greens and adopt less business-friendly policies due them being a bunch of woolly brained hippies who want to turn Australia in to a craft stall, selling Vegemite sandwiches and hand woven wrist bands to tourists. Not very fair dinkum cobber.
