Not tough enough on Rudd before

Sorry, but I think I might just not have been tough enough on Kevin Rudd in the post I did a few hours ago. Clearly, he felt that he was not going to get the numbers and as a result he is not going to run. He did the same thing the last time. And he will probably do it the next time too! If you were a Rudd supporter you would start to feel that he is a bit like the boy who cried wolf.
The most likely outcome of the spill on Friday is Kim Beazley will become the new leader. However, there is always a chance that health issues could take out the leader (Latham was only 44 years old and illness took him out). Although Labor has a deputy leader this normally a person who is not likely to ever be leader. So if Beazley was to fall ill at any stage the ALP would need to look for another person to lead. A person who was able to get over a third of the votes in a leadership spill is more likely to seen a potential leader than some lap dog of the factional warlords.

    It's Beazley, unless a scandal involving prostitutes or secret weapons deals with Arabs break sin the next couple of days...

    You had better make that a scandal with midget prositutes who are secertly doing the arms deal with the Arabs who are really are aliens who all voted for Bush.
    So in other words, I agree.
