Westfield only cares about the bling

What a total shock. Their terms for retail outlets are onerous, to say the least - percentages of gross revenue, plus per-square-metre floor rents. Fine, it's their business, but signing up voters is also a community service regardless of whether or not the Electoral Commission pays the workers. Last time I checked, list and electorate MPs get paid too, and campaigning is part of their job.

I guess that it doesn't help that the voters who are likely to sign up are the lower classes, the ones who will be more likely to vote for Labour and other parties who make companies like Westfield uncomfortable.

Still, at least they're consistent. Greedy bastards all round.

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos.
