    For a start the opening is getting tedious! Will Crikey tell its listeners if the PNG Parliament is about to dump on their Prime Minister because he can’t commit PNG Parliament to an agreement with Australia without involving the parliament? Is it possible that is the reason why Kevin Heiner Rudd went to the polls. Crikey please inform your readers how long the MP3 runs before we start listening, some of us have limited time to get across everything available, before going to ink! Some people like me have no idea how to download an MP3 Bernard you know what is happening. All that remains for you is to inform your readers. 14.54 If rudd can keep up the momentum. 19.05 Well thats enough for me Edward James

    Haven’t had time to listen to this recently but much more interesting with Cathy asking Bernard the questions, he does explain & answer her questions well. I always said the pollie that offers the most sweets gets the votes, surprised u both want sweeties. Can Bernard explain what the 3rd mining boom is gonna be. I had sudden visions of Aussies manufacturing aluminum instead of exporting bauxite & buying aluminum back. Would be a good market now.
