Ah the things politicians have to do for their photo opportunities in the hope someone will record and report their views on the help a Coalition would be to small business.
There was no such luck for Tony. The days of nagging on social media sites about the need for an explanation of wrongly claimed expenses that had to be repaid dominated the questioning. That issue is unlikely to do Tony Abbott any great harm but the Newspoll this morning suggested he badly needs an image improvement rather than spending his time fobbing off criticism.
A Howard revival. Exactly what image a track suited Kevin Rudd is trying to portray with his early morning walks is clear enough. He might not be able to bring himself to totally adopt the boat people policies of the man he beat in 2007, but looking as much like John Howard as possible is clearly the go.
And the punters are really starting to hedge their bets although the Coalition is still the pronounced favourite on our market based election indicator.
