Political Analysis Editorial Article by Marc Aupiais
"Prime Minister Julia Gillard has used a campaign stop in the marginal western Sydney seat of Lindsay to promise to increase family payments for some students by up to $4,000 a year if Labour is re-elected.
The address to students at McCarthy Catholic College in Emu Plains came after Ms Gillard promised to "throw away the rule book" following a Newspoll showing the Coalition drawing level with Labor on the two-party preferred vote."ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)[Secular; Australian; Governmental]02 / 08 | August / 2010
In Australia, there is Labour and the Liberals, the latter's group referred to as the Coalition. In Australian politics, the Liberals/Coalition would be closer to a Catholic vote than Labour, a vast difference from Northern Hemisphere Liberals who have become more socially left at times due to the existence of Conservatives. Labour got rid of Rudd, for dragging down their vote: mostly with Mining Taxes... and not by supporting, or for that matter not supporting enough (as the left claims) Anthropological Global Warming theory in divided Australia, as some have possibly claimed, but now even Atheist Cohabiting with a hairdresser Gillard is not fairing too brightly. This should be interesting.
Abbott has not noted any plans to reverse anti-life policies, although Australian funding of anthropological global warming theory adoption programmes will be cut if he is elected. The Liberals are generally a safer bet for Christians policy wise, even the difference between the head of Labour, and that of the Coalition furthers the relative difference between the two parties.
