In November 2007, Kevin Rudd announced that he wanted to put a computer on every senior student’s desk at a cost of $1billion. With the second stimulus package of $42 billion, it looks as though every Australian household will have a plasma TV by 2010.

Does anyone else get the feeling that all this stimulation is the forerunner to a premature election?

I agree with the Liberal Party and all its supporters: let’s immediately do nothing.
