Julia Gillard was very active in her electorate especially supporting
schools, she regularly visited almost every school in the area, don't
now if that will continue because she is no longer education minister
but she is liked and respected amongst the school communities in the
west of Melb.

Consider, Jason, that these people are NOT their respective parties, but rather,
the figureheads for those who really make the rules. These are people that we
don't get to hear or see, nor did we vote for them.
So, it doesn't matter whether the ALP has a female "running" the show or a male.
They both will trot out the party line. Same for the Liberals.
So, to get back on topic, the question that needs to be asked of both parties -
what will they do about the motoring industry in Australia. Will we see
continued subsidies for foreign owned corporations, or will we see them left to
survive on their own devices? Of course, the latter may mean the loss of local
manufacturing industries and jobs if we end up with 100 percent imports. But do
the likes of GM/H, Ford and Toyota deserve taxpayer funded handups?
