The 411 on Aussie Politics

While the election certainly seems like a long time ago, the Senate change over, which will give the Greens the balance of power, takes place this week.

This comes after the news that Tony Abbott now outranks Julia Gillard on the preferred Prime Minister poll, with the carbon tax being seen as a cause for the drop in Labor support.
