The election announcement

I've listened now to quite a lot of commentary about the Prime Minister's announcement of the date of the election.

I'm surprised that everyone I've heard believes her.

It's not like she's gone to the Governor General to issue writs.

It's just another Gillard claim.   Carbon tax anyone?

I just wouldn't take her seriously.   She could just as easily change her mind.   It means nothing to her.

What's she lost if she does?   She'll have a plausible reason.   I simply don't believe her.   It might be on the date she nominated, it might not.
