DIY Election speech kit

Want to recreate Kevin Rudd's Conference Opening speech in your own words, impress your friends and relations, and contribute to the demise of the Liberals in Canberra?

DH offers the following key words gleaned from today's address, color coded by party for your convenience

  • Fresh Thinking
  • No potential unwasted
  • No Australian in want
  • Dog-eat-dog market place
  • Compassion
  • Party of the Future/ Party of the Past
  • Me, Myself and I
  • Unity
  • Fair Go
  • Red tape nightmare
  • Social recession
  • Fresh thinking
  • Arrogant
  • Out-of-touch
And keep asking: What will happen when the mining boom is over?

Memory aids: Iraq, Siev-X, Christmas Island, Children overboard, trashing of the Commonwealth Employment Service, Kafkalink, Welfare-bashing, denial of global warming, Welfare to Workhouse, unprecedented levels of household debt, punitive social security breaches for the most vulnerable, cutting off funding for public housing, trashing of tertiary education, robbing from state schools to give to private schools, housing crisis, curtailment of freedom of the press, installing cronies who hate the ABC into its management, be alert but not alarmed, Third World Dental Health, Serfchoices

"Not The Kevin" here again... I'm here to help.

Your memory aids are great. My partner and I were thinking of adapting them to a t-shirt.

We'll show a link, if and when the project gets done.
