Scoreboard: Top dollar

Local stocks may not mirror the Australian dollar's election rally, while Tony Abbott has an opportunity to change attitudes to the currency.

Well first up, a huge congratulations to Tony Abbott and his team. A great victory. Let’s face it, the ALP failed dismally to govern the country and helped destroy confidence in the process. In my opinion, they committed an unforgiveable crime for an Australian government: created instability and uncertainty. This is why they posted the worst primary vote in 100 years. The sad thing is the spin that suggested they should take comfort in the fact it wasn’t as bad as expected! And there are plenty of people who still blame Kevin Rudd. With delusion like that, the Coalition might be in for some time.
