Wilkie boosts Labor's prospects

Julia Gillard's chances of remaining prime minister have been boosted, with Independent MP Andrew Wilkie saying he will back a Labor minority government, one day after independent Tony Windsor questioned the coalition's credentials.

Wow, a man that can say no to a $1B bribe to his constituents on the grounds of ethics. Who is this man, and why didn't he run for prime minister?

Well surprise, surprise. Did we expect anything else from Mr Wilkey? All it needs now are for the other three Independents (how independent are they?) to fall into line and Australia will be Governed by four candidates who achieved 1% of the vote. Come on Australians stop being complacent! Have you witnessed these four candidates speaking on TV? We deserve what we have got, and unless we make it known that we are not happy then we will be the "laughing stock" of the World. What interest do these four people have in WA? No interest other than we prop up their "broken States" with our revenuues which they claim to represent!.
