    Yeah, it should be a cracking contest over the next four months or so.

    I'm tipping a November 10 election (the Saturday after Melbourne Cup week) and for the Coalition to just hang on.

    It will be a huge fight though.

    Howard is finished imo, unless something serious defence-wise happens, there is no way he'll get re-elected. He seems to be copping it from all sides these days and whatever he does blows up in his face, the NT thing has seemed to have hurt him more than anything as it appears he's trying to buy votes. Rudd on the other hand is having a great run and bar any major stuff up, should be the next PM.

    Looking forward to paying more taxes and **** all to happen as a result of it until to late. And no Rudd won't be PM, it will be the ACTU in charge.

    ACTU hey? Good anything better than Howard. Minimum wage goes up $10 a week, what a disgrace, and now the Iraq war was not about OIL
    You know it makes sense.

    So it would seem. If nothing else Labor is competitive under Rudd.

    If they don't get the numbre of seats required, one can expect a swing to them the way things are going at the moment, which would put them in with a real show next time.

    What a ridiculous leap in logic to say that because he said oil is one reason for us remaining there, then that is the reason we went to war.

    Speaking of Joe Hockey...I try not to dislike many people immensely, but he's just a fat t**d with a ****-eating grin.


    Ahhh, looks like one's slipped through the censors...I'll do it myself

    Yes, but WMDs have conveniently faded from the Lib lexicon these days. Wasn't that the grounds on which Johnny took up George originally?

    If that was fruitless, then just why are we there?

    I'll take that as a compliment

    But I don't know about where you live, but some of the state politics are a sham. The Gold Coast's water supplies were starting to run lower then Brisbane's so the council made efforts with water restictions and the State Government fiddled until Brisbane's supplies started to drop at a rapid rate and then stepping in and taking whole control of water and trying to fix a problem once the horse had bolted. Public transport and with regards to the trains can be a bit dire. I know you won't hold much creditibility in the Daily Telegraph, but I saw it on the front page yeasterday about public transport critising Morris lemma's Government.

    The fact that we don't have a nationwide train system is a bit of a joke.

    Well it makes more sense, first it was weapons of mass destruction than it changed to SH being a Dictator, I never believed any of them, at least oil would make sense. And that piece you link to has so many holes in it
