fantastic post on 'mining the crown jewels' by Claire Browning at Pundit.
as she concludes,
"The World Bank report makes clear what we all already ought to know: our brand, and the nature of our wealth, are a world apart from our neighbour’s. We can do better than trundling around after elder sibling Kevin Rudd like a hero-worshipping toddler with a blanket. In the inimitable words of Mr Groser: “I’m sorry, but we need to grow up”."
