On last night’s 7.30 Report, Kevin Rudd made the hearts of Australia’s lefties flutter when he mentioned dealing with homelessness as a priority for his government.
“When I visited homeless shelters during the campaign the turn away rate for people who presented homeless shelters is horrific. Turn away rates of something like 80 or 90 per cent. Now this is just wrong in a country as wealthy as ours.”
You change the Government, you change the country. I think that Kevin Rudd is going to lose the ‘Howard-lite’ tag pretty quickly as this new Government begins to achieve things in areas that the Liberals wouldn’t even think about, let alone act upon.
