We're not sorry

The Libs are sure of one thing, well two, but they're definitely not sorry, and they're not going to say so to the traditional owners.

Prime Minister Rudd, well he will be on Monday, will formally apologise to the indigenous 'stolen generation', but without any blessing from the Liberals.

Brendan Nelson, who has the nod as the new opposition leader ahead of Malcolm Turnbull, says this generation "had no responsibility to apologise to Aborigines for the actions of earlier generations."

"In most cases the taking of indigenous children from their parents was done with good intentions, but not good outcomes," Brendan Nelson said.

Nelson has refused to guarantee Labor's changes to workplace laws while the coalition still controls the Senate.

However, they won't appose Labor's plan to ratify the Kyoto Protocol.

I still reckon Malcolm would have been a better choice.

And saying sorry? Are we still going to be debating this in 20 years? MOVE ON PEOPLE. You think that's going to stop them now? Give them an inch..

Q: Why did the Queensland Libs decide not to split into two?

A: Because they couldn't agree who'd be the B-Team
