what a downer… not

alexander downer – the bespectacled, be-stockinged former australian foreign affairs minister and one time opposition leader – has (finally) announced that he is leaving politics to have a go at solving the issues in cyprus.

for views of downer’s departure from both sides of the fence, see janet albrechtsen’s fawning here and caroline overington’s (who burst the awb scandal wide open) scathing attack here.

mcgauran was the first to leave, now downer… how long til costello calls it a day.  one would hope sooner rather than later, though as he can’t find a job we might be stuck with the member for higgins for a while longer yet.
