    Gee whiz it's a game changer!

    It's not even in the same ballpark as "there will be no carbon tax under a Government I lead". That's going back on a promise to introduce a tax that's goes to the biggest community concern of all, namely the cost of living.

    Anyone who understands modern politics knows that cost of living is a hornets nest.

    It doesn't need to be a game changer. It just needs to damage him.

    Do these staffers sit there playing Angry Birds all day? How the **** do you miss that? Appalling.

    I swear do they have giraffes formulating their political strategy? Or orangutans? So utterly incompetent.

    How on earth has Nicola Roxon, a senior member and probably their most effective attacking politician left, not seen it?!

    At the very least it seems a lot of people who see it and immediately passing it on. Perhaps the media will pick up on it and then labor will attack.


    Christ labor are relying on the media to do their work.

    To be fair to Labor staffers the video only emerged on youtube over the weekend, it'd been in hypernation for two years before that. But still, you'd think someone in the Labor setup would've remembered this interview and had the foresight to dig it up earlier

    I remember seeing it ages ago, including after the carbon tax announcement. It's been around.
