Hey, should we spin the Prime Ministers section off onto its own page, a la Prime Ministers of Ireland? It does take up a bit of space.

Makes sense to me.

Is it fair to mention that Tony Abbott's term has so far been marred by the Indonesian spying scandal, car manufacturers shutting down their Australian factories and so on, or should we wait until he gets voted out?

Be very careful to keep it from looking like vindictive grave-dancing — this is running up against the "we are not for bashing" guidelines. If it must be mentioned, keep it dry and factual. (Talking about current political figures is always problematic like this.)

I honestly believe Abbott is Australia's version of George W. Bush. With that said let's put it up and see how it goes.

Abbott hasn't even served a full term yet, so it's a bit difficult to identify what characterises his term. Maybe it's better if more commentry is added after the next election, whether he wins or gets voted out.

I think the George W. Bush analogy is apt, but after a full term of Abbott it'll be clearer what his public image, 'legacy' or the main focus of his govt is.

He has now. If you think the Bush analogy is apt I think we could use it.

Well, I don't object, so if no one else objects...

There's way, way too much Natter in the entries for Kevin Rudd and John Howard. I'm not sure if the debates within should be removed completely (as they'll most likely start afresh anyway), but it at the very least needs to be severely cut down and placed within the main entry in a "some people think A, but others argue B" sort of way.

The Last Continent tells us that AustraliansFour Ecksians throw their politicians in jail as soon as they're elected so as to save time. Would that be a good Laconic version of the page?

Can't think of a reason why it wouldn't.
