Labor is still on the front foot

The Australian Labor party's leader, Kim Beazley, has written an opinion piece in today's Australian highlighting the differences between the Labor and the Liberal positions on climate change policy. Reading it got me thinking that if John Howard had any doubt at all that he is in the middle of an election campaign then he surely doesn't now. Iraq, industrial relations, and the environment are all areas where Labor is looking good and taking the fight to the government. Kim is calling the shots at the moment in Australian politics, this is something that hasn't happened in a while.
