FTA: Even a trade-off agreement unlikely - Alan Ramsey: "Latham says he won't buckle, either. The Labor leader told a gobsmacked press conference the Opposition would 'fight like Kilkenny cats' to get its amendments adopted. Can we believe them? Who will break first? Or are we to get an election fought on whether Australia wants a free trade agreement after all? How absolutely delicious it has suddenly become."

Thank heavens Latham appears to have some gumption in him after al. Howard's political persona ('support our troops', 'wave the flag', 'war on terror', 'back the alliance') ought to be demolished head on.
