Note to Wayne Swan

Re: The ongoing Great Debate II: Attack of the Treasurers

The slogan "fair and balanced" has already been well and truly discredited. Please stop referring to your industrial relations agenda as such.

Thanks!

Thanks for the link :p.

I thought it was a rather dull debate that came back to the same shite spouted in the Rudd-Howard discussion. Seems like Costello got a few laughs at the expense of Swan/Rudd though. Good audience. But I thought neither man "won."

Because I don't like Costello, I picked up on his spiel about opposition to the GST, WorkChoices etc, and that in spite of this "he got the job done."

Translation: "It doesn't matter what people oppose, WE decide how to act in your best interests. So shut up - let us stuff money in the country's national pocket and let us do our job."

I KNEW someone else was watching, somewhere. :)

I was intenting to write a whole post about the debate but don't have too much to say about it. I thought it was a bad idea from the start, I don't find Wayne Swan particularly compelling and thought Costello would take him to school on the detail. Swan did better than I thought he would and man, people really don't like Costello, but it was really kind of boring, surprise surprise.

The Worm reacted very badly to WorkChoices still, I was gratified to note.
