Politics and current affairs: a peripheral perspective
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.
