is both a tool of social justice as well as a fundamental
driver of economic development.
Rudd # Education,
- No diplomatic
intervention will ever be made by any government that I lead
in support of any individual terrorist's life. We have only
indicated in the past, and will maintain a policy in the future,
of intervening diplomatically in support of Australian nationals
who face capital sentences abroad.
Rudd # Government,
it comes to labour market reform, here's the difference between
us and John
Howard regards labour as just like any other economic
commodity. We actually see labour as made up of human beings.
These are human beings with an intrinsic dignity. When they
go to the workplace, they're not just like a lump of wood
or a piece of coal, these are human beings, and they should
be treated properly as people with intrinsic rights.
Rudd # Reform,
- The major
challenges of climate change, the major challenge of the economy
and manufacturing, the major challenges in education, and
how do we turbo-charge our national education system to create
the knowledge base for the future of the Australian economy.
These are the sorts of areas that you're going to see detailed
policy plans from us in the weeks and months ahead...
Rudd # Climate
- Mr Howard's
problem is for so long he's been a climate change sceptic,
how can he, therefore, put himself to the country as part
of a climate change solution for the future.
Rudd # Thinking,
- I just
don't really get into all that sort of personal negative stuff.
My job is to outline some positive plans for the country's
future and perhaps Mr. Howard
and the Government don't like the fact that I'm putting out
some positive alternatives. What's their preference.. for
me to be a negative carping opposition leader?
Rudd # Job,
Australians would ask why is it that Schapelle Corby gets
sentenced to 20 years for importing marijuana, Abu Bakar Bashir
gets 30 months for participating in the murder of nearly 100
