John Howard has conceded defeat to the Labor party in todays Australian general election.
The new Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, wants a “more compassionate” country and is another one of those make-believe greens that are infesting governments of the anglosphere. Rudd has pledged to sign up to the Kyoto Treaty and to pull troops out of Iraq. He is also an ardent republican and has pledged yet another referendum on removing the Queen as head of state.
Howard is in danger of losing his own seat and becoming the first serving Prime Minister in almost 80 years to lose his seat. He has held the seat since 1974.
