Australia's PM about to take a light snack.
Australians are about to start paying the very high price for Rudd's profligacy. He thinks he had to spend his way out of recession and he continues to do so, running up huge deficits in the process. Tax and spend is thriving in Oz.

The best thing Phil Goff could do for both country's is to transfer his pantomime enquiry into bank interest rates across the ditch and relocate its venue to Sydney and then Melbourne. He could get The Libs to pay for the enquiry for it is Turnbull and his mates who have most to gain.
"One of Mr Rudd's most obvious political dilemma's is how tighter monetary policy would clash with the timing of the next election, due by the end of 2010.
