The image on the header is of the Newcastle (NSW) railway line that the State Government cut on Boxing Day, 2014 as part of their plan to make the inner city corridor available to property developers and deprive the city of its train service. The line was truncated on the fringe of the city which has caused traffic chaos in the inner city and overcrowding on buses and longer time commutes for those coming in or out of the city.
It is a demonstration of neo-liberal corruption and bastardry.
The header is to acknowledge my aggravation about this issue. See – Save our Rail – for more information.
The following chart is my test score as at August 5, 2014 from – Political Compass.
Maximum/Minimum scores range from +10 to -10 on both axis.
The following chart (click for full size) is my test score as at March 19, 2009. A little different but the questions have changed a little and make it easier to the extreme option out of the two either side of the ‘fence’ on the economics axis, which pushed more to the edge of left.
And, just in case you were wondering … my favourite colour is IKB (0 47 167).
