I have considered the issue, and I have come to a decision. I will be hoping and praying that Kevin Rudd wins in his home constituency of Griffith tomorrow.
It would give me a moment of joy and satisfaction to see the Prime Minister lose in his own seat, as it did for ALP supporters when John Howard was ousted in Bennelong in 2007. However, I have to put that against the long term and drawn out ecstasy of watching Mr Rudd continuing to destabilise his party from the back benches for the next three years.
There are no conditions where Mr Rudd won’t try to take the leadership back, and equally, no circumstances where his party will have him. The ructions when Mr Rudd is finally expelled from the party will be delicious.
