Some folks over at the IPA have come up with a response to The Head Prefect's recent essay published by the Fairfax press entitled 5½ big things Kevin Rudd doesn’t understand about the Australian economy.. It's well worth the read (probably a bit long, Jack, but it's worth it). The problem is that it could probably be more accurately titled 5½ big things on which Kevin Rudd exposes his claim of being a Fiscal Conservative™ as nonsense.
Of course, Jack, these 5½ big things are points of clear disagreement between (most) Labor folk and (most) Liberal folk and Chesterton [,G. K.] probably would have said that before any useful debate you need to work out which of them you can "move" on, otherwise useful debate will simply not take place.
Leaning a little to the right myself, I am quite unwilling to yield an inch on any of the things!

I just saw the end of one of the closest aussie rules games in my memory.
Burgers 1 point up at the 31 minute mark. There is a turnaround and Box Hill have the ball and move it up the park. At about the 50, around 20° off the corridor, a Box Hill player gets control of the ball. The siren sounds. Burgers fans cheer! Just a moment, though, the ball was off the boot just before the siren. The siren finishes with the ball still in the air. We watch as the ball sails through. Umpires have multiple meetings and, seemingly minutes later, the man in the lab coat sticks up two. Box Hill Mustangs by 5!
