Are the Libs risking ongoing 'brand damage' with Brendan Nelson continuing to be the Leader?
His latest remarks about all babies being loved etc were just stupid.
For those who haven't heard a sound bite, here is the gist of what he said:
Any suggestion that the baby bonus will, in fact, be means tested is pure speculation at this stage.Not Fair: Nelson
"I would have thought that Mr Rudd - who's already tried to pick on seniors and carers - would find another group other than families to pick on and it's very, very important that Mr Rudd understands that every mother loves her baby and this should be an Australia where all babies are equal" - Brendan Nelson
Dr Nelson doesn't seem to be acquiring any political skills as we might have hoped, but rather indulging in increasingly sentimental waffling.
