Blah, blah, blah ...

Rudd is droning again.

Dissing the PM’s vision announcement, released earlier today.

“Mr Howard released his document, Australia - Strong, Prosperous and Secure in Sydney today.

The document outlined five key agenda items for the Government, with supporting policies to be released in the lead-up to the election.

The five items are: growth and opportunity; stronger communities; securing Australia; sustainable country; and national unity.”

Fair enough.

At least it sounds like a vision.

However, Labor leader Rudd:

"attacked the document as a product of a government that had "grown stale and does not have an alternative plan for Australia's future."

"Over the course of this year, I have been detailing our clear cut plan for Australia's future. We've been hard at work," Mr Rudd said.

Mr Rudd listed Labor policies he had announced this year in areas including housing affordability, education, broadband, climate change and health.

"By contrast, Mr Howard, on the eve of an election, has released a document which outlines five categories, in which he may spend some time in the future, outlining some policy."

Let me summarize that again, for the slow-witted and the bored:

Howard Vision Thingy: growth and opportunity; stronger communities; securing Australia; sustainable country; and national unity

Rudd Vision Thingy: housing affordability, education, broadband, climate change and health.

The Age ...

  1. In fairness, Mr Rudd is also deeply, deeply, concerned about the price of groceries and petrol.
