If there was ever a hypocrite in Australian politics, John Howard takes pole position for the award.
As Prime Minister, he denied that climate change existed.
As our nation's leader, he refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol.
Now, three weeks out from an election, he is a born-again greenie - embracing the environment and climate change and inching closer every day to ratifying the Kyoto Protocol.
And he has the bare-faced temerity to accuse the Opposition of stealing his policies!
Just like Saul who was converted on the road to Damascus and changed his name to Paul, a cynic might believe that John will soon change his name to Kevin.
