John Howard really needs to get the boot :bigwave: I'am allowed to vote this year so its quite obvious that I'm not gonna vote for him :) But either way I'm not that fussed on Howard or Rudd by any means.

Julia Gillard's voice is :haha: she sounds like a man :lol:

I've also had enough with old Howie. Time for Labour to take over IMO - and Julia Gillard is the best, I wanted her to be head of labour instead of Rudd, but oh well.

Gillard is the left wing of her party. Her economic policies from what I read where not realistic. Rudd is a moderate, far more then Latham. I don't mind if either him or Howard wins. Howard already has influenced Australian politics and even the opposition has borrowed ideals from him just as Cameron has been influenced by Blair.

Howard. Although I don't like him, I like Rudd even less. Labour's policies are pathetic, and short-sighted. Howard's policies are more progressive, though they seem unfair. I still don't like it though. Thus I'm donkey voting!

I actually dont mind John Howard. Although many people feel his policies are unfair I think they are good for the long term benifit of out country and are thinking of our economy and future. Although im not massive on politics I just listen to what other people say.

Kevin Rudd! Hopefully my fellow Australians have had enough of The Rodent by now.

I mean how many times are people going to be SCARED into voting for Howard? He promised interest rates would go up under labour at the last election, and they've gone up 4 times since the last election.

Not to mention 'Work Choices' - Finally, he has over reached his mandate and the aussie public are angry! We are heading towards an american employment system which would really suck as we've always been more protected in australia.

Rudd is clever. He is breaking away from the unions and immitating Howard enough to the point where the aussie public will feel safe voting for him - unlike a loose cannon like Latham.

Hasn't Howard been in office for three or four terms already?
It's been a very, very long time.

The Aussies will likely vote the other way.

Grow annoyed with the liberal party, and then vote the other way again
next time around.

It's just due time for a change.

Even if I think Howard is brilliant. And I do.



Any party or candidate at that point is just done. It's too long.
If the British had a different system, Blair would have been voted
out of office last year. Chirac, long running, Blair long running,
Bush, long time....time to change. Even Canada went a little right
after a long period of the liberal party control. It's just due.

John Howard.. whilst i disagree with so many of his policies i dont trust Rudd and his inexperienced team who struggle to plan for the long term. And i will never vote of support a Government that works to bring Australia closer to China -- Rudd needs to turn of his blinkers and see the chinese for the regime that they are ..

BTW .. i hope neither meets with The Dalai Lama because a man of his stature should not have to meet with either of these men.

Julia Gillard - Her voice are unbelievable! :help: I always pay attention to hair because it is too damn BRIGHT ORANGE! :tape:

Gillard is the left wing of her party. Her economic policies from what I read where not realistic. Rudd is a moderate, far more then Latham. I don't mind if either him or Howard wins. Howard already has influenced Australian politics and even the opposition has borrowed ideals from him just as Cameron has been influenced by Blair.

And did you know that Mark Latham is already retired? :rolleyes:

11 years...that's a really long time. Chirac was about 12 or so. Blair 11 or 12.
It's just a time for change. If Howard's party could not come up with another person
to continue his general policy ideas, or spark enough to make him step down for another,
then too bad. I like Howard a lot. But, it's understandable if Australia turns one way
or the other - as the USA did after Clinton, after Carter, after Nixon, after Eisehnower,
change is good.

Will the new party and leader be able to sustain as many years as Howard did? Not likely.

Choosing between Rudd and Howard is like choosing between a douche bag and a turd sandwich.

The lack of choice is appalling but if I had to choose I'd go with Kev. Whilst Pete's flashy budget had me impressed it was transparent vote snatching. On the other hand Kevin's so right in his policies he may as well hold hands with libs.
I think I'll vote for neither, no thanks, not my vote.
