"Aspirational nationalism" or balderdash?

It's hardly worth mentioning, except for its curiosity and spin value, but Prime Minister Howard , or someone in his circle, has coined this phrase.

Its ostensible purpose is to summarise his vision for Australia in a nutshell.
The more likely effect is to draw attention to his propensity, never more marked than in recent times, to make policy on the run.

If he has a vision it is to keep himself in office.
