Labor leadership battle
Kevin Rudd says that his Labor leadership aspirations should be cryogenically frozen. That assumes they’ll one day be thawed and my guess is that process will begin within days of this year’s federal election. By then Labor will have been thrashed at the polls and Julia Gillard will have been consigned to the dustbin of Australia’s political history. Who will replace her as party leader? Surely her deputy Wayne Swan, will be banished with her. After his role in the political assassination of K. Rudd he could hardly be trusted in the trenches by anyone aspiring to the party’s top job. The Governor General’s son in law Bill Shorten would fancy his chances and after him, no one else appeals. For Rudd to even consider being drafted he would have to possess a death wish. Given the latest opinion polls nothing can save Labor from defeat this year. Rudd is a highly intelligent creature who does not appeal as someone willing to take possession of a poisoned challis. He’ll be back, on his own terms, in his own time and only after his detractors have been forced to digest a huge slice of humble pie.
I am a retired Serving member of the RAN (20 years). They had denied me a financial future in mishandling my Superannuation. I am supporting the push to deny the Labor Party winning the next election.

Christine Milne is bleating about the Mining Tax but the Mining Tax was NEVER in the agreement they signed. This is all about Milne struggling to stave off a leadership challenge from Hanson-Young. As for Labor, they can whoop and holla all they like BUT no amount of whoopin and hollarin can disguise the absolute truth...and that's that they are still welded at the hip to their loopy Alliance partners, the EXTREME Greens.Paul Tuesday 19 February, 2013 - 4:34 PM
Labor could theoretically be finished as a political party for a generation come September, or sooner.
The coming massacre will make the Whitlam landslide seem a slight vote against.
If Gillard was a decent person, she would step aside now for the good of the party.angelo Monday 18 February, 2013 - 6:08 PM
