Media Circus: still all about Craig Thomson?

So what else is going on in Canberra? Or the state capitals? Or your local council? Are they all on the austerity bandwagon, having drunk the Austrian Kool-Aid like the Dems in the USA? Or is something progressive/constructive actually going on in your part of the world?
