  • With Kevin Rudd as Labor Prime Minister again will he listen to the voters?

    Julia Gillard became too arrogant and ignored the electorate, the people who ultimately voted for Labor. Do you think Labor has a better chance with Kevin Rudd of having a better chance of winning the next election than Julia Gillard had against Tony Abbott? Also what did Julia Gillard do wrong to be so disliked by the voters?

    I was contacted by a Linda Amadu supposedly in a refugee camp in Dakar with the usual multi million dollar inheritance and offer of a percentage. I offered to help her refusing the share in her money which was help at the International Atlantic Bank Dakar branch which then sent me emails asking for silly information but the manager disclosed the amount in the account which seemed strange to me. Then emails from two "lawyers" Johnson Anthony and Bello Belanger wanting me to send them money. It really began to smell. Both the lawyers insisted they were representing me to release the money at the International Atlantic Bank and forward it to me for 'safety reasons'. Has anyone else had contact from any of there people? I have had to accept that I was so close to making a complete ass of myself. How to they remain to have email addresses including Yahoo when the service providers must know what they do?

    A 13 year old school boy living on the Sunshine Coast in Australia is too young to race in Australia but he has been to circuits practicing on his 125cc road racing Yamaha. His practice times have been faster than lap records. So in frustration he packed his bike and bags and flew to New Zealand, where he is old enough to race, for a weekend to contest the 125cc New Zealand Road Racing Championships. He won the event, set a race and lap record. Makes you wonder if he will get an age exemption to race in Australia or that the powers to be don't want the next Mick Doohan !!! That is what all you 'want to be's' have to do if you have ambitions to race in GP events. That is commitment.
