IT’S been an action-packed week
in “the battle for Wakefield,” as both
major political parties ramp up their
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was
in the electorate last weekend to
announce a $2 billion car industry
package to show support for local
The announcement, designed to
soften the blow of Mr Rudd’s previ-

But it was a debate held on Sun-

Champion and Liberal candidate,
Tom Zorich, which had tongues
