ALP’s Christmas cheer just got dearer

In The Australian today:

“It’s official: Wayne Swan was good for the birds. That’s according to this year’s Christmas Price Index, which measures the cost of buying the items listed in The Twelve Days of Christmas in Australia on a basis strictly comparable to a similar calculation by the PNC Financial Services Group for the US.”
