Tony Abbott and the new Liberal National coalition government should now begin to have clear water ahead to start to implement some of their policies. They have now identified most of the mess left to them by the previous Labor Government. When the new Senate is sworn in in the middle of the year this should give them an opportunity to push through new legislation.
The later part of this year 2014 will be the time that we should be starting to judge Tony and his team on their performance.

Well the silly holiday season is over again for another year.
Now that raises the question, sorry to digress, should we wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year or as the US President did just Happy Holidays. Me, I am for Merry Christmas. I would not be offended if someone from another religion wished me a happy or merry day on a date that was significant to them.
Now to new year resolutions. Why do we bother; we never keep them. To lose weight for instance takes more that just a wish on one day as does giving up smoking. So my policy is to just relax over the holidays, enjoy the food, the company and all that goes with Christmas.
A belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
