There's no surprise that every election begins once the most recent one has been won. And so it is with us. Still 18months to go but the campaign has been going for at least twelve months, if not longer - especially from the Opposition.
And what are they banging on about - besides the Carbon Tax and whether Climate Change really exists or not? Budget Surplus. It's every government's bugbear. What I can't understand is why. What's the surplus for? To me, having a surplus means that you haven't bothered spending anything on important stuff - schools, hospitals, police, infrastructure. I know having money in the bank is a good thing but honestly, what's it for? A rainy day? You can't get many more rainy days than what we're having at the moment.
Having said that, Labour has fucked up so badly that they're gone no matter when the election campaign truly starts.
Oh well, whaddayagoinado?
