    According to Capital Monitor, the Nine Network and Sky News are reporting that Prime Minister John Howard has reportedly decided to fight the next election, ending months of speculation about his future.

    Probably a positive for all of us who are in the investment game.

    I doubt that Bomber Beasley will be impressed though.
    What do others think? Is it a positive or not?

    The whole rigmarole of Pete taking the reins will now happen about 12 months after the next election i am guessing.

    Elections

    I guess the Libs know they won't get in with Peter C. at the helm. Better for the PM to take over until the next election and hand over to Peter C. They might as well hand over to the Libs now and save the country $$$$ what with Labor's lacklustre stance and performance to date.
