Julia Gillard reckons she is going to convince Australians she is trustworthy.

After the routing of the Labor government in Queensland on Saturday put the Prime Minister’s trustworthiness at the centre of the political debate, Ms Gillard went on the front foot yesterday, mimicking the strategy John Howard adopted at the start of the 2004 election campaign.

”I’m happy now and in the 2013 election to say ‘who do you trust to manage the economy in the interests of working people?’,” Ms Gillard said from South Korea where she is attending a nuclear summit with world leaders.

”Who do you trust to understand the needs of the future and the building of that future economy?

”Who do you trust to spread the benefits of the mining boom to make sure that they are shared by all Australians? Who do you trust to improve your local schools and local hospitals?”

What about who do you trust to tell the truth during an election campaign?
