Constitutional matters : lifestyle




Australia's new Coalition government is settling into office under the leadership of Tony Abbott, the new Prime Minister. It's possible, it seems, to govern this country without a daily photo opportunity of a cabinet minister standing in front of a construction site, a cancer ward or a military barracks, fitted out with hard hat, surgical smock or khaki flak jacket. No more sitting on the floor of the kindergarten with a reading book and a tight smile. No more Sunday evening TV news sound bites of Prime Ministerial bile against the backdrop of a Canberra non-Conformist church.
