Abbot is not the answer I agree, however the Labour party are so destructive that they have to go before its too late and the unions are back in full control.
Look how easily they got rid of a PM today....they cannot be trusted with our future.

I think red-heads are making one more push for supremacy before they die out in the next 50-100 years
lets not forget red hair is a recessive gene ;)

Rudd's a dud but Gillard...God no...

Well Rudd for all his failures he got alot done in his stint.

I think that the nationalised health service will be looked upon in years to come as a watermark moment much like floating the dollar and allying with Asia in trade blocks

I used to work on Abbott's portfolio when I worked on the budget and I can tell you, he's better than the public give him credit for. He doesn't come across well on TV but he's smart, and more importantly, the likes of Hockey, Joyce etc. are a much better team than the likes of Swan, Tanner etc.

I think the wasted money on the BER, Swan remaining as treasurer and the fact Julia was in the communist party will make their job difficult.

We have had very different experiences it seems hammertime.

My work in commitee trying to brief Abbott on international relations was like pulling teeth last year. He is a clueless idiot in the sphere of world political cycles and interpretation. The only two men I have ever had to deal with who were dumber in that aspect were Mark Latham and Joe Hockey

Same Horse - CRUDD was a Fake.

Gillard the backstabber is responsible for the BERoute. I love the fact that the schools are being upgraded but not at any cost and putting all the extra mony (Our money) in big buil;ders pockets.

Plus - The Emissions policy will end up costing you and me more for everything. - Dont be tricked that was just another grab for money...

Ps Im a swinging voter.

I think we have a very poor standard of politician on both sides at the moment and it is reflected in state politics also, Qld for one is a joke.

Depends if you can put N. Kidman in that bracket I guess?
If we are talking literally then probably not.

I know of who you refer but she was in a different delegation to me last year. I was specifically dealing with the Middle East & South America last year.

Carolines specialty is South East Asia, China and the former Soviet Union from memory.

As an aside North Korea was something Tony wanted to know nothing about according to some.

I think if Malcolm Turnbull & Kevin Rudd formed a Centralist Party and they got into power that this country could do great things
