A depressing trip down memory lane…
“An editorial in the influential newspaper The Australian launched a scathing attack on both John Howard and Kim Beazley before Saturday’s poll.
“The system has failed to produce candidates who offer what Australia needs – to look beyond the war against terror and the phoney war on boat people,” said the paper.
“In this leadership election, both Howard and Beazley are losers – and Australia will pay the price for years.” ” (BBC)
