I have written to the PM, and copied in all the premiers, the 2 chief ministers, numerous journalists, my federal and state pollies, my local mayor and 'Uncle Tom Cobbley & all' - surely someone will write back?
I didn't ask for much - really it was quite simple - and very respectful, finishing up with:
..."that in the interest of social justice and the environment, you consider persuading the state governments to repeal their mandatory helmet laws, given that the Hawke government was instrumental in persuading the states to enact the laws in the first place."
- then i wished him all the best and lots of luck in Copenhagen - pretty cosy really!
