Breaking News - Federal Election Called For September 7, 2013

I wonder what this will mean for e-Health?

Here is the announcement email

It’s on.

A few moments ago I saw the Governor-General and asked that she dissolve this parliament and call the Federal Election for September 7.

Australians now face a choice. And the choice couldn’t be starker.

I have a positive vision about the country we can be. In this election I’ll be talking with Australians across the county about better schools for our kids, investing so we can create good jobs, and about how the NBN can help keep our economy strong.

Tony Abbott has a different approach. He’ll bang on with the same negativity that we’re all sick of. He’s only got three word slogans because he doesn’t have the ticker to debate his real agenda.

Right now the only thing standing between Australia and an Abbott-led government is you, me, and as many Australians as we can rally to fight for the kind of nation we all want to live in.

We’ve got one hell of a fight on our hands. Abbott and a few millionaires will out-spend us. But if we join together we can even the playing field. Chip in $5 to get us off to a strong start:

It’s time to rally the troops.


PS – I mean what I say: we can win this if we work together. Now’s the time to step up – please make our campaign stronger by donating now:

Sound to me the next 5 weeks are going to be pretty willing.

Well the only thing that stands between the defenders of the DOHA/NEHTA Hubris and sensible eHealth policy is Tony Abbott. Mind you I am probably guilty of thinking the grass must be greener on the other side...

Lets hope the Coalition have a better Bullshit meter.

You are deluding yourself. Abbott's BS meter failed him when he was Health Minister and Peter Dutton barely knows how t spell eHealth let alone understand anything about it. Jane Halton will wrap him round her little finger and tie him in knots.

Dr Haikerwal confirmed he would make the trek to Geraldton. Oh my goodness, a GP spits the dummy in the media and Dr Haikerwal hops on the plane. Another junket no less. I presume he gets paid travel time.

Has he been to see you David? I hope so, he might learn quite a lot.
