  • Everyone talks of Labor losing, but I just cannot see Abbott being made PM, he just does not seem to have any ideas or initiatives.

  • @Jeff, I too would choose Rudd over Gillard any day, simply because he was the most popularly elected PM in recent days. I wouldn't worry too much about how carbon is priced. This govt has gone for fixed cost, I prefer the variable method (ETS), but at the end of the day, pricing on carbon has become a reality. Even if Abbott comes to power he won't go against it. He has been known to be a weathervane on this - according to his own words.

  • The way I look at it is this, I would never ever ever vote for labor now or in the future if Julia is leading the party, With her carbon tax lies, terrible boat people policy's, over budget NBN, she makes dumb deals with the greens and the whole country pays for it just to keep power, the country comes first than the party, I would of never kept the country at ransom to stay in power, its more of a ego issue for her.
    Come next election if labor tosses Julia to the curb and tosses the carbon tax out the door and reinstates Kevin Rudd the I would vote for Kevin, If not the Tony will have my vote.
    Also The main issues that are state problems like infrastructure and electricity production ownership should be federally owned, If either party would take over these two over priced items and gave it a go to reduce the cost. That would win votes, also lower petrol rates, go off the North American rates, they are 40% cheaper.

  • Yes please, I want Gillard to be the P.M. at the time of the election. She will ensure Labor and the Greens have the greatest defeat in Australian political history.
