Last night's budget was a boon for homebuyers—150,000 places over three years for deposit assistance. It's a policy so compelling, it's been appropriated by the other side.

I also note today that it's been a year since those ridiculous allegations about me were published through the media, untrue, egged on by ALP opponents and broadcast without obtaining my version of events. They're now a thing of the past. Last year's bullies were not warriors for women. They used the same tactics against women for their own personal advancement. Strong women don't need that conduct in their lives. If the media has now considered war in their commentary will get both sides of the debate, then that is an important legacy for me to leave behind from these last 12 months.
