Aust Prime Minister and Hillary Clinton lunch at Taxi

A good recommendation for Taxi Dining Room at Federation Square that it was chosen by our Prime Minister as the spot to entertain the American Secretary of State to lunch whilst on a visit of Melbourne.

And the place would have been "off-limits" to all of us regular punters. You wouldnt have got within coo-ee of it - Aussie cops & US secret service dudes would have had it locked down for hours before.

With both being alarmist 'global warmers', they may have spent their time analysing in microscopic detail (to pointless effect) how many 'food kilometres' or 'food miles' their food and liquor had travelled, not forgetting of course how many kilowatt hours of electricity were being consumed by the ovens, the lighting and so on.

This is not how the Chinese and Indians do things in their own nations, but the latter two countries are interested in ensuring that their own citizens enjoy rising material affluence, (and good on them) unlike some Western nations' leaders.

Lets see in 20 yrs if the average "Joe/Jane" still gets 12 sick days and 5 weeks annual leave..With a 1/4 of the worlds population earning a dollar a day its going to be interesting times ahead..
