So why, in the space of a few
months, has Labor gone from being
all but invincible to, according to
several polls, most likely to hang on
by its fingernails?
Yes, it s made mistakes; yes,
there s arrogance; yes, it s notori-
ous for spin, as talkback callers to

But while the Bannon Government

The turning point may not be
Rick Phillips attack on the Premier,
but Mike Rann s response as to
whether he knew his attacker.
Mr Rann said he d never met
him but we know from Mr Phillips
claims of letter writing and phone
calls, the Premier should certainly
have known of him.
That s why trust is the
underlying theme and why Mr Rann
could be fighting for his political life
when FIVEaa begins broadcasting

All that, though, was washed
away when the McGee brothers
were found not guilty of conspiring
to attempt to pervert the course of
justice. The phones lit up, or did
they turn hot white from anger?
It s hard to know if the McGees
will play well for Mike Rann, who
has spent eight years bagging the
legal system. One caller said he had
at last been pushed across the line
and would reluctantly vote Labor.
Others seemed to somehow hold the
current Government responsible.
With so little time left in the
campaign, methinks this latest

decision time. You can opt for a new
hospital or a not-so-new hospital, a
new sports stadium or a re-jigged
one, an ICAC or the same old
watchdogs, more stormwater or
slightly less stormwater, etc.
Of course, anyone can spend our
money, so shouldn t we be looking
for something more? Integrity,
honesty and transparency might
be a good start, and avoid anyone
manipulated by faceless faction
leaders from behind the scenes.
Which reminds me, perhaps I
ought to add "wash the dog" to that

2010 state election. The Government
is experienced, can point to a fair
economic record, and is helped by
the substantial majority it won in
2006. Six months ago, the Liberals
were still getting used to their
fourth leader since Rob Kerin led
them to defeat at the last election.
The fact that the polls are so
close now is a demonstration of the
problems Labor has faced through
the campaign -- and how well Isobel
Redmond has performed. Labor has
tried to keep the focus on jobs and
development. It has not always been
successful and it has been vulner-
able to unexpected "ambushes".
The Liberals sense they have
winning policies on the redevelop-
ment of the RAH and on recycled
stormwater. Their weakness has
been the over-reliance on the leader
and their history of in-fighting.
Labor should still win (just), but
the Liberals will come into the new
Parliament refreshed and with
renewed confidence that govern-
ment will be within reach at the
next election in 2014.
