Prime Minister Clinton nodded.
"That is wonderful advice. As someone who came from a third party to majority in a coalition government, I find that point of people trying to frustrate the manifesto very true. We've made some huge strides in making Australia fairer with a Native Title Court that handles disputes between rural Australia, mining companies, and Aboriginal Australians. It's been successful and so far, we've seen very even-handed rulings. Each one is in a regional part of a state or territory, since that's where the dispute takes place," she began.
"A key reform that pleased both Labor and the Progressive Alliance was the two public investment banks, the Australian Public Infrastructure Bank and the First Republic Private-Public Bank. The first has partnered with state and territory governments to provide key investment for projects, as well as the federal government. It's allowed the quickening of a Trans-Australia passenger train service from Perth to Melbourne, a remarkable achievement, connecting all of our major cities via the coast. The second has allowed for a start-up boom in Australia, and that has become very popular. Australia runs on a 4 year schedule but...."
Hillary, at that point, leaned in to Mr. Courtenay as well.
"We're thinking about surprising this totally confused National Party opposition and calling an early general election either at the end of this year or the beginning of 2019. A summer election benefits my Progressive Alliance and getting the vote out while winter helps the Nationals," said the Prime Minister with a cheeky grin.
Minister Bowen cut in, realising that Hillary wasn't going to talk about the neutrality ending.
"Yes, we're happy to end it. Australia has a role to play in the region and with Angleter, the United Kingdom, and the Duxburian Union and we were limited with what we could do. The Australian Defence Forces will definitely enjoy the boost in spending they will receive with the end of neutrality as well," Minister Bowen responded. "I do believe, Hillary, we ought to get these agreements written down and beat them into some kind of treaty. We also should touch more on details of perhaps, if not totally free, then fair trade, seeing as our currencies are on pretty even standing. I think some of Australia's products, both finished and raw, would be of interest of Angleter."
