Go for Growth is gone!

All through the campaign John Howard has been in front of a sign that read "Go for Growth".

Not today. It has been sidelined by a previously-absent flag:

It might have been because the Reserve Bank's statement said we should not go for growth. It might have been because right now "Go for Growth" could be translated to maen "Go for higher rates".

In any event, not only is a rate hike mid-campaign historic, so too is abandoning your central campaign slogan mid-campaign.
