More to do, but heading in the right direction

That assumes of course that the "right direction" is a downward death spiral.

After 12 years of Labor, what do we have? Is the education system better than 12 years ago (measured by results not money spent)? Is the hospital system bettter than 12 years ago (think every increasing waiting lists for "elective" surgery)? Is the amount of crime comparable to 12 years ago? Are the roads and infrastructure as good as 12 years ago? Are essential utilities (water, electricty) in the same (or better) position than 12 months ago? Is public investment (i.e. assets held by the government on behalf of the voters) as significant as 12 years ago (or have they privatised everything to pay off the ever-increasing debt)?

Basically, they would have been better off saying "look we stuffed everything up but we want to try and set things right" - at least that would have been honest....

Pity that we have a one party state system....
