If there's been a more banal political slogan in Australian history than Labor's "moving forward" then please let me know.
The first poll published after the calling of the August 21 election comes from Galaxy and shows that the government holds on to its 52-48 lead.
I commented recently that before the last election, which Labor won with a 53-47 margin, their Betfair odds were $1.31.
The current odds are as follows:
The odds support the 52-48 poll so, unless one side or the other puts their foot in it big time, then we've got another three years of Labor government to look forward to. How much more debt will they be able to pile onto our kids? It's remarkable that the modern, "progressive" left has no care for the financial health of the economies of which they're supposed to be custodians.
