(Reuters) - The audience is hushed - Harry the psychic crocodile is about to predict Australia's next Prime Minister. Harry's handler, Nigel Plamer, says he has no idea who Harry likes for victory.

"Harry is from a very conservative background as far as I know his history so it will be interesting to see which way he goes."

So, will it be Labor leader Julia Gillard or Liberal leader Tony Abbott? It's a win for Gillard, says Harry. A bit stingy with her chicken, though, isn't she?
