Thanks, Iain. I look forward to your post on the latest polls showing it’s 50/50, indicating that Rudd has not only lifted Labor’s vote, he’s also holding it firm. This could be the best election ever.
It seems that our New Again Dear Leader is maintaining his personal popularity and those on the left who are terrified of the prospect of good governance under a Coalition government are beginning to find a faint glimmer of hope that the continued popularity of the new New Again Dear Leader may yet allow the forces of darkness to continue their tenure in the lodge. I can’t see it happening to be honest, especially in the light of the conversations that I have been having with the ordinary punters out there in voter-land. On several occasions I have heard people express the view that they are profoundly cynical about the New Again Dear Leader and the rabble he leads even if they are less than into cheering for Tony Abbott with great vigor. The real question that the nation faces is do we want an ego-maniacal New Again Dear Leader running the show or do we want a grown up who will return the focus onto good governance and sound workable policy .
