While we wait out the remaining two weeks of the election campaign, words really seem wasted waxing any further on the attributes of either side. For every inch Gillard and Abbott gain, they each lose a mile the next day. Julia with her inconsistencies, and Tony with his continued ‘foot in the mouth’ affliction. It’ll be down to the wire, almost too close to call. I barrack for the Libs, not necessarily Abbott, but I reckon the crown will go to Labor.
That’s not fence-sitting, it’s an analysis of the electorate I live in, the media I read, and the mainstream blogs I visit. Sadly, I don’t hope that Tony takes the prize. Should his party gain the ascendency they’ll need to do a much needed overhaul of policy and cabinet ministers that could perhaps be better done in private. On the other hand, should Labor win, they’ll need to get quick smart back on that steep learning curve. The one where a political party learns how to go from being a populist choice to a stable government.
