This week’s Monday Reading is the result of trawling through 120 sources to bring you the best of the best. Of course, I say that while I sit on the floor of the new Drunkspec HQ because I haven’t moved any furniture upstairs yet. Let’s just say quality comes in many forms.

Here are the other highlights from last week:

We had our federal election in Australia and, once again, it was a contest between two white men over who could best appeal to the xenophobic, entitled bogan (or “middle class” as they’re known in polite company). Tony Abbott of the conservative Liberal Party carried the day, a result that my teenaged self would’ve been vomitting with rage about. My current self is a little more circumspect (read: cynical). Vote Pirate I say.
