abbott's new name for the government

    I've just noticed that Tony Abbott now refers to the government as the Rudd/Gillard government.

    You have to admire how their brain works - Tony obviously been advised that that terminology maintains the links to the failed Rudd and also reminds us subliminally that Gillard didn't win her own majority.

    On the Labor side they have used the flood crisis and levy to jettison a handful of dog policies - could you imagine the glee they expressed when they had a readymade excuse to get rid of the "cash for clunkers" dog, the "Green car dog" and some of the expensive and ineffective solar rebates? Too clever by half, both parties.

    By the way - is my maths out or is the levy only raising 25% of what is reportedly needed?
