Here is a cross-section of some of today's best articles, just to give you a feel for what's about to happen to George Bush's staunchest ally in the War on Intelligent Foreign Policy.
In 2001, John Howard, aided by Philip Ruddock, showed that it was good business. Howard’s vital sentence, uttered for the first time during that campaign during the Liberals’ formal launch at the Sydney Recital Hall, was: “We decide who comes into this country and the circumstances in which they come.” I was there and there were two moments during that event when the roof of that beautiful space just about lifted off due to the rapturous applause from Liberal supporters: when Howard made that statement and when Ruddock, the hero of the push against boat people, was introduced to the crowd.Here is an astounding piece of news from this morning, about how our ex-Goldman Sachs investment banker Environment Minister has taken out a full page newspaper ad demanding that people vote for him or be forced to go through the whole election process again.
