I hate to spoil my own prospects, but I really don't respect the kiss-and-tell approach to public life at all, not at all.
I think any good government will target on the finishing date, that is, the polling day and make sure that their strategy is strong and in place to get them successfully re-elected.
Well goodness knows, goodness knows what historians will write.
Yeah, well I'm not aspiring to be the Prime Minister.
I'm not terribly focused on whether I even could ever become the Leader of the Liberal Party or the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party in the future.
Well people often ask me how I felt growing up with a father who was a politician and who was often away. But when I'm asked that question I often reflect on my inability really to be able to answer it in any relative sense because I never grew up with a father doing anything else. So I just have no idea what it would be like otherwise.
