The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Rudd’s mastery of the sound bite

I knew Rudd would be a better leader than Beazley for the simple reason that he is a master of the sound bite. No better example than his keynote economic theme for the election. Says it all really. Repeat often and consult a pollster if symptoms persist.

From ABC Online: Howard ‘lacks long-term economic plan’

Federal Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd says Prime Minister John Howard is failing to develop a long-term economic strategy for Australia.

In his weekly radio address, Mr Howard says the Government’s changes to the tax system and workplace laws have helped deliver a strong economy and a huge fall in unemployment.

But Mr Rudd says housing affordability is now at a record low and interest rates are the second-highest in the industrialised world.

“Mr Howard is very good at describing Australia’s economic circumstances, which were brought about by the mining boom,” he said.

“He’s very poor when it comes to developing and defining a long-term economic strategy for when the mining boom is over.

“That is the gap in Mr Howard’s long-term strategy.”
