I'd even vote for Johnny Rotten (Howard) now.
Thank #### I don't have to hear that voice (Julia Dullard) very often.
Labor will get WALLOPED in NSW and Federal elections. Their excuse will then be; "The people of NSW/Australia weren't accepting of a female Premier/Prime Minister"
Get rid of them as quickly as possible for the sake of NSW and for Australia!
New face, same cronies except for Rudd.
Although Rudd will wear the blame for all of Labors recent woes the same crew with a lack of business experience is still in charge of the Australian economy, it may be enough to get them a second term if it fools the greater majority but not a lot has changed as they were all in boots deep with the fiascos that have stuffed Australia.
It appears poor Juila isn't very popular on this forum.
I do find it amusing though that no matter who is in power the same sort of whinging goes on.
To me they are all pretty much the same, imo it's the system that causes them all to become essentially clones with only very minor differences.
All things are difficult before they are easy.
(Good win on the weekend by the way)
The system is flawed to start with. Either you have "democracy" or "communism". Both as bad as each other. Can't win.
I always wondered, why in Australia they haven't passed a bill stating, by the year "insert year here", all new "house and land packages" must have solar power/solar hot water or some sort of "green technology". Wouldn't that create a massive "green" industry and technology would boom in this great country. At the moment, L.A. and l think Japan and China are leading the solar and alternative technology front. With the amount of sunlight that we receive in this country, we should be at the forefront in some form or another?

Australia will go to the polls within months, Julia Gillard has announced.
Ms Gillard was elected Labor leader unopposed on Thursday, after Kevin Rudd stood aside, and will be sworn in as prime minister at 12.30pm (AEST).
"In the coming months, I will ask the governor-general to call a general election so that the Australian people can exercise their birthright and choose their prime minister," she said.
Ms Gillard said she wouldn't move into The Lodge - the prime minister's official resident in Canberra - until after she won the next election.
"I'm very happy in my home in Altona (in Melbourne's northern suburbs) ... very happy in my flat in Canberra," she said.
"I'd be happy to stay there for a considerable period of time.
"Indeed, I believe it is appropriate for me to stay there until we have an election and I have fulsomely earned the trust of Australian people to be prime minister."
"Within months" means??? 1 to 12?
At least she is not moving into the Lodge unless properly elected as PM. A tick for that.
Try and think outside the square
A liberated liberal then?
"Speak softly, but carry a big stick". Theodore Roosevelt.
The Liberals have proved that they still haven't moved beyond the technophobic bunch of sh*th*cks that they were under Howard and have vowed to kill of the NBN if they get elected.
YEAH, real smart - let's cancel a project that's going to support the industry sector that is the biggest employer of Australians by an overwhelming majority: the services industry, and not to mention has the potential for enormous innovation and the opening of a whole new sector of the economy that could one day be as valuable as the resources sector. But wait, let's pander to the miners saying oh poor them, Krudd wants to tax something that the country's never going to see again, how ever will those poor dears cope? BAH!
There's nothing worse than GOOD POLICY potentially being canned all because the opposition were unable to think of it themselves.
Plus, I don't like lycra-clad religious nutjobs.
I think she will want it as soon as possible in order to capitalise on the euphoria surrounding her elevation to PM and before she actually has to prove herself.
Yes, agree that she is being sensitive and very decent about saying she has no interest in moving into the Lodge until she has earned the job in her own right, plus she noted the Rudd's have a son at school in Canberra.
Ten out of ten on this piece of courtesy.
Nothing has changed. Kerry O'Brien interviewed Gillard tonight and he threw a few curly ones at her trying to pin her on her treachery to Rudd. She deflected all questions with a combination of mock sincerity and girlish innocence. He never laid a glove on her.
She is a very slippery customer, and Abbott should be very worried.
Lindsay Tanner is going to chuck it in. This will give Gillard the opportunity to reward Bill Shorten with a Cabinet position. They have probably already made a deal.
