Who Dares Wins
We are not going to win an election in this climate unless we come up with a campaign that is too good to refuse!
Howard is making his parties usual mistake in believing that we the working men and women of Australia are so simple that he can shoot off oversees under the premise of representing Australia in Americas time of need.
Beazley will be left to fight a shadow that will be popping up continuously on the world stage.
Beazley in my humble opinion needs to fight a different fight on local issues, whils being smart enough to not ignore the world turmoil that all astute polititions will be making good milliage from!
Take the GST by the throught and shake the life out of it....... reduce it to a level we can cope with for a start!
Keating went the bigger picture route and lost badley.
Keating also won the unwinable...based on the GST, so can Beazley.
Iguess you have to believe you can win before you can even contemplate winning.
Im not sure that Beazley thinks he can win????
This election will come down to strength of character and leadership.
So Mr Beazley, get tough, make us start believing you can win, LEAD us.
