Sunday, 22 August 2010
ImageNick Cave has been named as the musician Australians would most like to see made prime minister.

The 52-year-old rocker, who has fronted bands Grinderman and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in the past, beat John Butler and Powderfinger singer Bernard Fanning in the MySpace poll.

Cave told AAP: "My first political act will be to introduce legislation forcing all Australians to lower their expectations."

Over 300,000 votes were cast in the survey, which also included Kylie Minogue, Paul Kelly and Jimmy Barnes.
