Tomorrow is a public holiday in Sydney because our government doesn't want us in our own city. APEC is in town and we have all been told to go away and come back on Monday. In addition to extraordinary levels of bowing and scraping to the leaders of other countries, there have been special laws passed, an exclusion zone defined and an enormous fence built through the city to keep the VIPs separate.
There's a fine line between security and paranoia but the distinction appears to have been lost here.
In the meantime, most of us plan to ignore it all and enjoy the sleep-in - that's what I'll be doing!
