It is surprising, especially considering it's a line they've used before, and undoubtedly will again.
I think it's a pointless remark (as are most of the remarks made in the campaign from both sides), as it's completely irrelevant to what is happening now. As is the fact that rates were even higher when Howard was treasurer. Obviously the current world economic climate has a lot to do with where we're at.
Anyway, I can't wait until the election is over and done with...the repetition will be just about killing me by then!
It's nice to see the coalition throwing in some education initiatives, but I think they're kind of missing the point.
