Australia has a new National Anthem?

Australia’s incoming prime minister, Kevin Rudd, has named a singer from Midnight Oil, Peter Garrett, to be the new environmental minister.  For those for whom the band name doesn’t ring the bell, there can’t be many who won’t recognize the music.

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it baaaack

In naming his ministers, it is clear that the “three Es” are his main priority – the economy, education and the environment

Hat tip to skralyx for the catch.
