Just gotta get this down:
Manboobs Latham as PM means Lemon Lips Macklin as second in command, so when Manboobs' pancreas explodes again, Oz will have a full on Helen Clarke type leading us - we will become a wide brown New Zealand. As in 'Nothing Little Nation' instead of Punching Well Above Weight Nation'. New Zealand is fine, if you want to be an anomymous Southern Hemisphere blip famed for 3 Hobbit movies and some sailors.
Plus, Manboobs in charge means GST hike inevitable - he's natch gonna need more money than he has, think Liverpool Council writ large - need Commonwealth and State agreement to increase GST. If they are all Laborites, what's not to agree on?
Plus, Manboobs in charge leaves us with a fatheaded imbecile representing the nation internationally, at Asean, in Europe, and in Bush's America. Latham in Rome. Ya, zif.
