> Have to agree with Rick on this. Whilst i'd love to see PG as
> Labour leader (& eventual PM of course) Australia seems to be
> much more conservative these days, sticking with the status
> quo, given the fact that the two key issues (interest rates &
> unemployment) are in relatively good shape. (If it aint
> broke......blah blah blah....)
> The Liberals ran a clever campaign, highlighting Latham's
> incompetency during his time as Mayor of Liverpool (local
> government - 2 levels below Federal). The catch-cry of "if he
> couldn't manage the local council, how can he manage the
> country?" scared a lot of voters into avoiding him like the plague.
> I think Howard has a job for life, unless his understudy
> Costello gets the ambition bug & the numbers up to overthrow
> him during this current term.
> But in the meantime i'll be watching question time with
> interest as i can see PG getting invloved in some fiery
> exchanges with his counterparts.
