Howards Scorched Earth Retreat?

Scientists hunting for the "Dictator Gene" might want to keep an eye on John Howard's final days. Like many an alpha male blooded by absolute power, Howard may be programmed to drag the nation down with him if he goes. With all the polls predicting that the Howard Government has no more than 3-4 months left, Howard has hatching one manic plan after another to snatch control of the State's domains: the rivers, public housing, local councils, hospitals, schools. He wants it all, yet there is no evidence of any long term plan for the management of any of these grandiose initiatives. If he has his way, it's going to require a massive reconstruction effort to rebuild the burnt-out shells of infrastructure he leaves behind.
