What I find fascinating is that Wikipedia is cited as the dominant News
What ever happened to the good old ABC or Channel 10,7,9,SBS or even the
SMH, AFR et al.
Have we grown so wary of political spin edit mode that we now shun these
former denizens of news casing?
So now the fun begins.
With an election about to be announced, and the Filter legislation
parked [so that it is not an election issue], will Ms. Gillard kill once
and for all - ahead of the election the rabbit proof money sink - or
will she in turn be the next victim to what will ultimately be called in
the History books.....
Julia Gillard will be the 13th Labour Prime Minister. In Hungarian
folklore, 13 is an extremely lucky number. Let's hope that Richard was
wrong in suggesting that Ms Gillard will retain Conroy's Folly.
Support of the Christian conservatives on the filter issue didn't seem
to hold much water in the party room this morning.
Me personally, I'm rather ambivalent on the Prime Minister issue.
When a Prime Minister supports unworkable legislative amendments, then
the leadership is tainted with the same brush.
The filter is dragging down the Australian Labour Party.
