Hey look, another exercise!

This is practice for an exam I’ll be doing next week. Yikes.

——-

With the impending election rapidly approaching and Kevid Rudd and the Labor Party’s heads all on a chopping block, he stands ready to launch his campaign to keep the Parliment in Labor hands. By all accounts a Labor victory isn’t a sure thing, so what the Prime Minister says now could have a lasting impact on the election. Live from the Brisbane Powerhouse and Convention Centre.

3:13 Kevin Rudd welcomes the audience, denies that Labor is done, “If you say the fight is up, you haven’t seen nothing yet.” “we can prevail and we will prevail.” ” A fair go for all.”

3:15 KRudd lists the acoplishments of the Labor Party, Whitlam to Gillard. Labor believes in progressive politics. They build up services,  conservatives tear them down.

3:17 KRudd admits Labor makes mistakes. “Those who make mistakes are those who have never done anything in life.” According to Rudd this is how they move forward.

3:18 Rudd wants to live in an Australia where people don’t fear losing their jobs, considering his position – not surprisning.

3:19 New industries to drive the economy in Australia. Better broadband, schooling and health are what Rudd wants to bring to Australia.

3:20 Rudd and Labor want Australia to be free of descrimination; racial, homophobia.

Hey, this is a exercise for one of our tutes

carchase

(TAKEN FROM THE GOLD COAST BULLETIN)

A TEEN who allegedly rammed three police vehicles while leading officers on a two-hour chase through south east Queensland has been denied bail.
The 16-year-old Stockleigh boy, who is facing 15 charges, applied for bail in Southport Magistrates Court today after handing himself in to Coomera Police Station yesterday.
Police will allege he reached speeds of up to 140km h during a two-hour chase that started at Warwick at 10.30am on Sunday when officers sighted a vehicle wanted for an earlier evade police incident.
The teen allegedly rammed a police car at about 11.30am while avoiding tyre spikes set up on the Cunningham Highway at Willowbank.

Police said the youth allegedly drove along Beaudesert-Boonah Rd to Bromelton. He  allegedly drove at an officer and rammed two police cars at 12.10pm when he avoided road spikes on Waste Facility Road at Bromelton.
Police will allege he then abandoned the vehicle on Kurragong Drive at Jimboomba.
Duty lawyer Bridget Patchell told the court the teen had gone off the rails this year after his family situation at home deteriorated.
He had been living with his father after the relationship breakdown but recently moved to live with his mother.
Ms Patchell said all his possessions were left at his father’s house and he was driving to get them on Sunday when the incidents happened.
“It was a situation that just blew out of proportion,” said Ms Patchell.
The teen’s parents were visibly distressed in court when Magistrate Catherine Pirie denied him bail until a bail plan, including counselling and employment, was drawn up by Youth Justice Services.
He was remanded in custody and will reappear in Southport Magistrates Court on Friday.
