As readers of this blog know I have a lot of time for our PM John Howard. He is a modest man, self-effacing and a tough, highly intelligent politician. He towers above anyone in the Labor Party for intellectual capacity, lack of pretension and for sound judgement. But, on the basis of current opinion polls, he looks like being replaced as PM by Kevin Rudd and Australia will become a one-party state. This makes me sad but, amidst this sadness, I got a laugh out of this.
