You would have to be public-spirited to support John Howard's election spending platform, if you're in my position.

Of the $6 bill of yesterday's promises (with an annual cost of substantially less) the only part that could conceivably benefit old uncles is the $200 mill over four years for "a major dementia initiative".

I'd rather have a tax-cut to spend while I've still got my marbles.
