Good News to Come?

by John O’Sullivan

Another reason for consider a Sydney vacation. I’m following the news from there via blogger Tim Blair and the online version of “The Australian.” Blair’s blog directed me to signs of a late swing to Howard. Labor’s lead of eight per cent last week has been cut to four per cent which, in the Australian system, is close to a dead heat. The Australian’s report online said: “Pollsters said the survey, which came a week after a Newspoll showed former diplomat Rudd ahead by a winning eight-point lead, reflected a major shift in the key states of Queensland and Western Australia.” It might be an exciting night, after all.
