With Friends Like Abbott...

We are just a few days away from the official start of the Victorian state election campaign on Tuesday, but that hasn't stopped both Labor and the Coalition from making some early policy announcements.  It will likely be a close result, although Labor is currently leading in the polls 56 per cent to 44 per cent on the two-party preferred vote.  In order to avoid getting thrown out of office after only one term, I get the feeling the state Coalition would prefer not to be associated with the Commonwealth Government.  I mean, look at the two pictures below of Premier Denis Napthine and Prime Minister Tony Abbott, which appeared in articles in The Age this week.

The Prime Minister says he wants to "do everything I can to help my friend Denis Napthine."  I wonder if that includes being too busy to visit Victoria in November.
