Howard's Last Stand

Centrebet odds on Labor to Win 1.62 to Coalition's 2.30 at time of posting!

Note to the PM:
While teetering on the brink, it's probably not a good idea to make wild policy lunges.

Or clutch desperately at straw polls from yesteryear.

Or keep upping the bravado. How many times in one interview is it possible to repeat:
  • Now, I'm not going to apologize for ...
  • Now, I'm not here to ...
  • Now, I'm not about to
  • Now, I certainly don't intend to ...
What sounded strong and resolute a season ago is beginning to sound like hubris.
