A brilliant observation

Prof. Greg Craven, Vice-Chancellor at the Australian Catholic University and constitutional law expert, on the 7:30 Report last night, talking about the NSW Government:
"The difficulty with governments is that they age at the same rate as dogs..."
I presume that this observation is all Craven's own work.  And he's dead right - the average life of governments in Australia over the last 30 years or so has to be around the 10-year mark - about 70 years in dog years.

A profound contribution to our understanding of politics and the science of psephology.
