    Despite the ALP’s best efforts to smear Abbott as the reincarnation of Benito Mussolini, in reality you couldn’t slide a piece of paper between him and Gillard policy-wise.

    The most amusing aspect to me as a (non-voting) Australian resident is that Rudd was dumped due to the public’s disaffection with his abandonment of the policies for which Australia elected him. Yet the ALP believes it’s going to succeed by saying they’re going to implement or resolve these self-same policies, when all the evidence to date is that their actual strategy is to defuse all the apparently controversial issues, win the election, and only then decide what to do. Worried about population pressure in west Sydney? Announce that it will be resolved. Emissions trading getting people worried? Announce a community forum to get into it – after the election, naturally.

    Pardon, but my BS detector is starting to shake itself to pieces.

    Aussies like Gillard because she’s that novelty, a female politician, but when it comes to the policies, where’s the beef? With just on four weeks to go the mining super profits tax issue has started to re-emerge, the boat people issue is a festering albatross around Gillard’s neck, the Greens are starting to smell a rat (albatross?) and her abdication from the Big Australia policy has also started to unravel as her platitudes pile up.

    This is not to say that I think Abbott is much, if any, better. Just that the ALP and Gillard are engaged in double-speak of epic proportions.

    This is no accident, it was well thought out like “cunning stunts” especially appropriate at a circus.

    Rudd’s support started to dive after his comments about wanting a ‘Big Australia’.

    “Former prime minister Kevin Rudd’s target of 36 million people is not a big Australia — it is an obese, congested and overloaded Australia. It is an Australia we won’t recognise, much less want. That’s why it wasn’t the backflip on the ETS or even the home insulation debacle that started the rot for “Big Kev”. It was his passionate endorsement of a so-called “big Australia” in late October 2009 that started his downward spiral…

    In early October, before Rudd began his big Australia push, he had enjoyed an approval rating of 66 per cent according to the Morgan Poll. From that point it was all downhill. By the start of December, after weeks of defending his blind faith in population growth, it was already down to 53 per cent. Even though Opposition Leader Tony Abbott boldly endorsed this vision with a similar call for “as many people as possible to enjoy the benefits of life in Australia”, it was Rudd who coined the “big Australia” millstone.”

    She won because she looks so much like Jodie Foster and she managed to tame Hannibal Lecter.

    I’d be scared to be in aroom alone with julia. She looks like she can eat you whole – especially if you are a curious looking drama queen by the name of Kevin Rudd.

    Ummm… DPF, you do realise this was all over the internet over a week ago? Iain Dale and Tim Blair had it, I’ve seen it on NZ blogs as well. You’re a bit late, old boy…
