Don't Get Fooled Again! Throw Howard out in 2007

These pages will be dedicated to ensuring that John Howard does not get re-elected in 2007.

If Australia had a critical and enquiring newsmedia he would not have remained in Govenment beyond 1998 after his Government's infamous collusion with Corrigan's attempt to destroy the Maritime Workers Union with mercernary strikebreakers and guard dogs.

These pages will be dedicated to ensuring that John Howard does not get re-elected in 2007.

If Australia had a critical and enquiring newsmedia he would not have remained in Govenment beyond 1998 after his Goverenment's infamous collusion with Corrigan's attempt to destroy the Maritime Workers Union with mercernary strikebreakers and guard dogs. However, his Government has been able to survive, seemingly against the odds to inflict countless more crimes against the public interest, workers, the poor, the environment and future generations.

These pages aim to explain why this was possible and to ensure that his record of crime ends in 2007.

Whilst a vote against Howard and ultimately for Labor the only viable alternative to the Liberals in 2007 under Australia's preferential voting sytem, is essential, Labor is, itself not without grave shortcomings. These pages will also place Kevin Rudd's Labor Party and other oppositon parties such as The Greens, The Democrats and smaller left-wing alternatives under the critical microscope.

Mr Costello's economic vision reminds me of a blind express train driver (apologies to the sight-impaired, if you can see this at all).

We're rushing like mad to where? - somewhere. Anywhere but here it seems. Anywhere but where we've been. Keep the pedal to the metal. The schedule is all that matters. Timetable rules - ok?

The fool listens too much to the well dressed blokes who have taken over the dining car. They keep him stoked with pie and chips and hearty compliments. What blind express driver could fail to be impressed, if he has no other sensory input? Just pie and chips and a heavy Right foot. That's the ticket, pal! Vrooooom!

Will no-one tell him that we are cresting the peak? Will no-one tell him that the gradient down the other side only gets steeper?

No need for economic drivers then. No need for engine or throttle either. We're going to accellerate into a valley where pies and chips will be in very short supply. The well dressed blokes think that monopolisation of the dining car will be their salvation, but the pantry is far smaller than they think.

I blame their mothers frankly. The driver and the well dressed blokes were never made to eat their upper-crusts, and it shows.

Keep Howard in. Look at what he has done. He has ran the country for over 2 terms and he has not killed everyone by starting a war. KICK RUDD OUT he is a slime bag and he will cause a war in the long run. Trust me. He is the biggest slime bag and so sneaky.
