As the current Australian Prime Minister (AKA Julia Gillard) and the ex Foreign Minister (Kevin Rudd) go for each others throats, fighting to be top dog, I can’t help but think that the so called “faceless men” are wringing their hands in glee. Is there a third Labor politician lurking in the background, who, as this leadership challenge ends in an absolute bloody mess, will raise his/her hand on Monday morning to take over as Australia’s Prime Minister and send both Rudd and Gillard to the back benches? Don’t be surprised if Stephen Smith or Bill Shorten (AKA Australia’s Governor General’s son-in law) step up under the ruse they had to do it to “save the Party’s reputation”.
Psst This is turning into an embarrassing farce, if any one of them cared about the people of Australia or their party they would call a new election.
2nd Psst AND stop talking about how you rode Australia out of the Global Financial Crisis. You spent every dime in the coffers and borrowed our children’s future for us to, so call, “survive”. Now we are paying in taxes. Hmm, let see, how many new taxes have you enforce during your time in power????
