Labor opens up

Kudos to the new Rudd Labor Government for being so open about what it is doing. I refer specifically to recent events in which it has (1) paved the way for an apology to the Stolen Generation (and Aborigines in general) (2) allowed media access to the refugee camps in Narua, (3) provide the media with information regarding the latest Treasury advice on the economy and (4) support media reporting of terrorism-related cases (in stark contrast to Federal Police boss Mick Keelty). Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his Cabinet also held an open community forum when they met in Perth for the first time. This transparency was not a feature of the previous government but it’s what government should be about. After all, they work for us.As long as they can take the people into their confidence, Labor should enjoy a long (and successful) term in office. Other comments on communication can be found at
