A Vintage Leunig cartoon about politicians

The election trail is becoming boring and repetitive and there's too much talk about money. I think Hugh Mackay in today's Age is right when he says: 'The government succeeded in getting the economy back as the top agenda item, but since I believe this is not what this election is about, the danger is that voters simply switch off. The voters have repeatedly said 'Could someone please talk to us about the kind of society we want to become.' They would love one side or the other to say something visionary about Australian society - involving the four big issues: education, health, the environment the workplace.'
There has been little talk about borders and attitudes to the rest of the world as I think foreign policy is rather important at the moment. Instead of 'me too' from Rudd on every which way but loose he should come up with some outstanding words about overseas aid and foreign policy.
