You would think that, but actually in the U.S. the saying has illogically  
always been "could care less" when what is really meant is "couldn't care  
less."  Perhaps it works because we say it with a sarcastic tone.  I  don't 
know the origins, but it has been the common way of saying it at least  since 
I was a kid more than 50 years ago.

Same in  the UK and Ireland sadly but we also have lots of nasty killing 
type people to  contend with as well ( one of the first two White-tailed Sea 
Eagles to breed  in Ireland was found shot last week with 50 pellets in the 
bird ).      Eric think you meant to say politicians who could not care  
less............ Best/Mike

I have not been to Australia in 20 years, but my recollection  is that the 
National Parks were wonderful.  Apparently you have the same  problems we 
have here in the U.S. -- insufficient money to properly maintain  the parks 
and too many politicians who could care less.  I guess I will  need to return 
soon, while they are all there, and to see Royal National Park,  which 
burned while we were over there.

I apologize for my  rude remarks about timber workers made last night, 
ery much in the heat of  the moment.
wish however to most strongly disagree with the Prime  Minister's 
tatement that we have too many National Parks.  Our  National Parks need 
ar more funding and far more staff - and then they  would contribute to 
he economy via tourism.
