Dear Mum and Dad
The Federal election was held yesterday and after 6 years of a Labor government (one that had a lot of infighting and conniving going on) you would both be delighted that we now are back to having a Liberal government; at least for the next 3 years (and beyond I would hope)
I think you would both approve of our new Prime Minister. He is a very good family man and works hard in the community as well. He keeps very fit and is involved in surf life saving and volunteer bushfire work as well. He is religious, which perhaps Dad wouldn't worry you, but you Mum would probably approve of that although his religion is different to yours. I feel he is a good man and will be a good leader.
For some reason many people didn't seem to like him (and still don't from what I've been seeing on social media) and yet it appears sufficient people approved of him to elect him so he can form a government. We can only hope he forms a good and reliable one that can work well with the Opposition and the Senate and bring stability back to our country.
Times are not easy in the world of today with many economic problems and civil wars in middle eastern countries. There are lots of refugees from those countries trying to find a new and safe place to live. I actually fear for the future of my grandchildren and great-grandchildren as their world is going to be so vastly different to the world I grew up in, regardless of the Great Depression and World War 2. We got through them and in many ways I think it made us better people. I am not sure that is the case any more.
Just wanted to keep you up to speed with what is happening in our world of today.
Love to you both
