He had better do some good here. With the throwing overboard of the Sudanese/Australian population lately, he is still evil in my eyes.

I'm sure JH will find a way to slither out of these pre-election promises if he wins...after all, he's not called "honest John" for his honesty.

lets face facts.. he really doesnt care for glbt people in any way whatsoever.. he has an election to win and he has reconcilliation with indiginous people as his last attaempt to win favour back so hes going to use that. I cant wait till this weasle is no longer in office..

This thread should be re-named the pro-labor thread.
Guys think about it long and hard.
John Howard has made a couple of mistakes(we all do) but overall he has been a reasonably good prime-minister.
Go ahead keep blaming him for everything. Labor has generally backed him all the way infact Labor if they had been in power would have been very simular(except wed have huge national debt.)
Gay rights we'd have if individual politicans had the balls to stand up for us.

Hmmm. While I agree that no side of politics (major parties) is prepared to support GLTB legislative causes, I strongly disagree that the Liberal National government are good economic managers. They have no national debt because they sold off institutions like Telstra, infrastrucutre like airports, and cut back on services, pensions, health and education spending and neglected infrastructure for 10 years. If John Howard only made a couple of mistakes then I think he could have been forgiven.The trouble is he made major mistakes like Iraq, civil rights taken away in the name of terrorism, USA free trade agreement failure, work choices and all are unforgivable. He has been the lowest reforming government in Australian history as well so we have nothing positive to show for 1o years of them. Time to give the other guys a go I think they can't do any worse.

but do you think gillard/rudd will be more trustworthy?
they have already been caught out lying and bullying.(work choices to reverse will not hurt multi-national companies it will affect the small independant mum/dad/individual business owners which were previously held to ransom over the unions)
Iraq why is this a mistake and not afghanistan?Its good to have the information in hindsight,but remember the labor party at the time gave full backing.
And finally look at the state labor govt's.Lots of debt,over-taxing,excessive pork-barrelling and their shocking enviromental records with their dirty over polluting coal power stations.
