IT'S NO GOOD John Howard trying to play the statesman when Mark Latham has him by the goolies.

You're not doing it for the good of the country, John, you're copping those amendments of Latham's because he needs a stunt-a-day to distract us from the program cuts he's hiding in his pocket. And you need the FTA, or what's left of it, politically speaking.

What's the bet there's a string of Labor bad news announcements during the Olympics.

Time to reverse the blow-torch, John.
