    Hopefully Kev will sign it asap and not just talk about it .

    Good luck to you all for your election .

    oK Aussies,It's been 5months since labor got in-have they done ok so far,Do You think? Have they Kept Their Promises? I Don't think Labor has any interest in Making Life Fairer for some Minority groups yet.

    I need to check out your issues in your government, but it sounds like ya'll got what you wanted and you voted, which is great to see.... Congrats! I can't WAIT for the election to get over with here... so much mudslinging its out of control... I think June will be the last primary and the convention in November... got a long ways to go but its really getting old. I just wish they would concentrate on the issues instead of doing the low blows on each other... was it that way in your area?

    I think our new Govt is doing fine. Rudd is keeping his promises & he's SOOOOO much better to watch on TV than little Johnny.

    @ Tysonshadow: your "Mr Sheen" joke was so funny!! He's just the re-worked younger version.

    I get better vibes from Kev than Little Johnny. I think he is a more down to earth person. He has more personality. And I still believe that he cares more about the "battlers" than Johnny ever did. Johnny only wanted to make rich people richer.

    I would not "jump the fence" for Kev though!!!

    It's been an entertaining 10 mins googling pics of our current munchin & the previous one. Here's a selection:

    Kevin Rudd with someone we've possibly all seen before:


    Goodness, a Leader with a munchin smile:


    Our previous leader, John Howard (commonly called "little Johnny")with a friend:

    P.S. Little Johnny is on the right.

    To top off a good election win, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has a cool website:

    If the election had been between these two, I would have voted for the one on the left!!!

    You know, it could very well have been Brendan Nelson (Leader of the Liberal Party now) on the campaign trail.
