Australia's pro-Bush PM Howard in trouble. Labour Party ahead in polls.
Edited on Tue May-25-04 09:04 AM by Cascadian
Another member of the Coalition of the "Willing" losing ground. Australia's John Howard and his Liberal Party are losing in the latest opinion polls in Australia. Elections are expected later on this year.

The Labour Party leader Mark Latham has a plan to "do a Zapatero" and bring Australian troops home by December.

2. Wow. Bush is awesome!
He's single-handedly wiping out the conservative movement from the entire world. Not bad from a moron who can't even ride a bike.

no matter how much I detest the ALP these days I can't see them using the "children overboard" lie to win an election.

The Pauline Hanson fans must LOVE the Howard govt. took almost their entire platform and ran with it

8. Whatever happened to Pauline Hanson?
She struck me as a bit of a lunatic. Am I correct in that assumption? A sort of female Australian version of Pat Buchanan.
