  1. Abbott- Where is money coming from? Slogan slogan slogan…..

    ‘we haven’t got a clue where the money’s coming from.’

  2. The thing you gotta understand a lot of waste in the batts, school halls…

    avoiding how numbers will add up….wait until closer to election

  3. Rudd is killing Abbott on all fronts at this point – in terms of content, delivery, warmth, the works. It’s no contest in these early minutes.

  4. Abbott is crazy to have the GST as part of the review. He’s dug a very deep hole that he just can’t find a way out of.

  5. Interesting point Diogenes. I wonder who will be first to engage the other – Abbott or Rudd. Or perhaps their people both advised against direct engagement.

    Surely, though, one would be tempted by a Reaganesque “There you go again..”.
