The inclusive Kevin. Sat through the televised community cabinet meeting shown on ABC News channel this evening. Thought Prime Minister Rudd hogged the microphone far less than Julia Gillard did on previous occasions. Was quite impressed - so much better and more informative than parliamentary question time.
Half a million between friends. There could not be a better time to put the bite on a government than the eve of a formal election campaign. The Central Queensland national rugby league consortium took full advantage of Kevin Rudd being in town to get $500,000 of taxpayer's money to conduct a feasibility study of a new stadium for Rockhampton. It follows a promise earlier this year by Tony Abbott to help fund redevelopment of his local team Manly's stadium. I'm sure there will be to come from both sides before the votes are counted.
A no change day. Virtually no change on the indicator today.
