Hold on, John

Don't you listen to them, John. Don't you dare. You just stick with it. I really, really, REALLY wanna see you there on Election Day.

This has nothing to do with the fact I think you're the Liberal Party's greatest current liability and you will bring your party down even more with you.

Nothing to do with the fact that I think you have a realistic chance not only of losing this election, but also your own seat, becoming only the second PM in history ever to do so.

Nothing to do with the fact that I am so looking forward to hearing what senior Libs REALLY think about you in the post-election aftermath, when the recriminations begin to fly and Costello and all his supporters are free to point out they were right all along - that if you had graciously handed the leadership over last year like Pete thought you would, he could have reinvigorated your party enough to win them a fifth election.

Nothing to do with the fact that your egoism, stubbornness and single-minded determination to surpass Menzies' record as the longest-serving PM will ultimately be your downfall, and consign you to the place in history you truly deserve.

Nothing to do with the fact I am enjoying tremendously watching the Libs implode upon themselves and giving Rudd and Labor a free ride to power.

Nothing to do with the fact that it's amusing to watch your meeja lap-dogs, particularly those in the Gazette, write with such heavy hearts (or the charcoaly things that pass for them) that their beloved Great Leader must go. (Certainly nothing to do with the particular enjoyment of watching DammitJanet squirm, knowing that she knows her job as right-wing culture warrior at the ABC is toast, as is possibly her Weekly Howard Toadying column, should Rudd get in.)

It's really to do with...umm...

Awww, hell. You got me John. It really is to do with all those things.

So, to paraphrase Bob Sinclair: John, hold on. Tell me no more lies. On election day, you will have to answer to the children of the sky.

I totally agree with everything you have said. Howard must stay on and wont it be glorious to see him lose!!!!! So many people are waiting for that moment, just to see John and Jeanettes' faces, 'as losers' The last 11 years have been horrendous and Howard has deeeply divided Australians. It will be wonderful to be proud of our country again, as a just and fair society.Not everything about government is making more wealth and a greedier community. It will be great to see an end to the CONSERVATIVES and their supposedly moral religious buddies. Brentonx

Hell yes. The only way for the country to properly repudiate his legacy and consign him, defeated, to the dustbin of history, is to have the chance to turf him out at the ballot box.

I'm prepared to endure another two months or so of the bastard to make sure that happens.

God I hope I'm back in Oz in time for the election - I definitely want to be there and feel the relief as the people of Australia turf the little monster out of power. There will be a party right Sam?
