The latest news from around the globe
AUSTRALIA’S NEW WORLD PREMIERE, LUCY MACKAY, SAYS THERE ARE THINGS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD THAT WE DON’T SEE ON THE NEWS EVERY DAY.
MACKAY SAYS IT’S A PURE CINEMA IN A NUTSHELL: “It’s a pure cinema in a nutshell,” he says.
“There’s no politics, no celebrity, no politics and no celebrity culture in it, and that’s because the world has moved on.
There are things happening that we don’t see on the news every day that are so fundamental and profound that it’s a wonder the news isn’t bigger than the world.”
“I think there’s a sort of a kind of zeitgeist here and I think it’s not a vacuum.
It’s like a bubble that’s growing.
People are getting older, more aware of what’s happening and more conscious of it.
They’re looking for the answers.
If we just let the world go on like this, then what are we going to have in our future?”
Mackay says he’s been watching news channels for decades and is used to hearing about people’s frustrations with the current political climate.
He’s been following the latest political developments and is hopeful about the future.
In this new world, he says, people are getting better informed about politics and they’re finding out more about what’s going on in the world.
“They’re being better informed.
I think that’s what I love about it,” he said.
AUSTRALIANS WORSE LANDLORD, MARK LINDSAY, SAYING THE PRESIDENT’S RETIREMENT IS NOT AN APPOINTMENT TO THEM: Mark Lindsay, a former prime minister and the first Australian prime minister to resign, said the country’s problems could be solved by an overhaul of the electoral system.
Lindsay says the country needs to be more involved in politics, not less.
(ABC News: Greg Barker)”We have so much political control that we can’t get out of it, so it would be nice if we got out of that and we could get to work,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne’s AM program.
This is a big, big, major problem.
When I look at our government, I look around and I see the biggest problems in our government.
The prime minister’s been elected and is now gone, and the people who elected him and his party have never run a government in Australia.
And we are going through a period of very significant economic turmoil and uncertainty, so we have no time to think about it.
So that’s the problem.
And I think that the president’s retirement, in my view, is not an appropriate time for a person to retire, given that we’ve got the longest and most prolonged recession in our history.

LOUISIA’ST PRESIDENT HENREY’S MOTHER: I’M IN THE HOUSE, AND I’M ALREADY GOING TO BE THE MOST UNINTERESTED PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN POLITICS FOR THE NEXT 20 YEARS.
She says the most important thing she’s learned from the campaign is to “not let it define who I am.”
She adds that her husband was never more passionate about the job than when he was running for the presidency, and he was able to put his “own personal spin” on the issues he wanted to address.
