If Norman Hoffmann (letters, June 28) wants to find differences between the two major party leaders just look at what they’re saying.
Abbott, talking to party supporters on Friday, was negative and nasty. Rudd, talking to the media, refused to badmouth Gillard and said she should receive the respect that the office deserves.
Sure, politics is a hard game but when it comes to being worried, Norman, yes I agree. You should be very, very worried that someone with consummate skill is now on the scene to stop Abbott from getting away with the amount of BS he has been feeding to those simple enough to be taken in by him and to force Abbott to confront policy debating rather than taking the cheap shots that Gillard was not up to effectively rebutting.
