    Unbelieveable. Now they're doing another investigation into his wife's company. They need to be very careful to avoid making it look like some kind of witch hunt (not saying it is, but they really don't need to have it look like that).
    Pfft. You're making it sound like the Liberal Party themselves are conducting the investigation. Clearly if someone's potentially been in breach of the law then it needs to be looked into.

    As for 60/40 - like Howard said, maybe it's just an exercise of the innate sense of humour of the Australian public!

    No, actually I'm not. I'm saying it's quite the contrary. But in politics, perception IS reality, so as I said, if it looks like they're having a crack at her (so to speak), it won't play well for them.

    Rumour has it that the Liberals have some disparaging and potentially very harmful information up their sleeve about Kevin Rudd.

    And that would be a surprise why?

    They all have dirt on each other. If they want to play that game I'm sure something will be said about the role the former sex discrimination commissioner played in JH's domestic policies.

    It's former fugitive Tony Mokbel - difficult to recognise because of the dire rug.

    Good bloke according to our former Shadow Attorney General.

    I was just clowning around.

    Earlier in the year Labor's Shadow Attorney General, Kelvin Thomson, resigned after it was discovered that he gave Mokbel a reference some time ago.

    This year is my first Federal Election because I now have Australian citizenship. I'm voting Labor because Howard has had long enough now.

    If anyone wants to hear a riotous interview, go to:

    www.abc.net.au/lateline/

    and go to the recent interview with Keating.

    As always, he doesn't miss.
