Julia Gillard, a disfunctional leader of a dysfunctional government, has had a visit today by the people of power within the Labour Party. At 13:05, fifteen minutes ago, she announced in Parliament that there is a leadership spill, and a party election will be held at 16:30 today.
Five minutes later the Leader of the Opposition moved for a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister…….
The speeches are going on right now.
So what’s going to happen? The Labour MP’s will all troop into the lobby and vote their confidence in Ms Gillard, and then, three hours later, do what? Vote to knife her?
Isn’t politics fun? Honesty, integrity and probity – the defining characteristics.
