FOR WHOM THE POLL TOLLS
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
This site has consistently claimed that Kevin Rudd can never lead Labor again. Polls that show a Rudd return might give Labor a fighting chance are misleading and indicate only the extremity of the public’s distaste for Gillard.
I have a ripper little dog called Blinky who would poll well when compared to Gillard. Even Ivan Milat would poll well if voters were forced to a choice. That’s the extent of Gillard’s unpopularity and it holds no Brownie points for Rudd.
Media have been beating up Rudd’s prospects for years, he makes great copy, but if Labor is to field more than a lacrosse team after this election it needs to ignore the Milky Bar Kid.
Let’s face it, Kevin (I have to zip folks) Rudd is a political simpleton who was used as a footstool for Gillard’s elevation.
When the AWU could stand him no longer, it ruthlessly killed him off. Seriously, would it now agree to his reinstatement?
When union thugs and crooks like Howes and Ludwig decide who leads this nation what more can we expect than an ideologically driven gangsters’ moll like Gillard.
Ludwig’s heir in waiting, Bill Shorten, will certainly lead what’s left of this once-great party after the election.
He could replace Gillard now, he has broad factional support, but he has a few problems.
First problem is he can’t keep his dick in his trousers.
Second, he is embroiled in the coming explosive expose on the AWU/Gillard/Slater & Gordon fraud case under investigation by the Victorian Fraud Squad.
Third, he doesn’t want to be the one to lead the Labor Party to an embarrassing defeat.
But in Opposition he will need numbers he can build on and that will not be possible if Gillard stays. What a dilemma for little Bill.
Leaked ACTU polling shows a Labor massacre. Why was it leaked? Because ACTU luminaries were ruefully coveting safe Labor seats that will no longer exist if Gillard stays.
The ACTU wants Gillard gone too, but it wants anyone but Rudd.
With illegal immigration looming as the major election issue, the cerumen-ingesting, overfed public servant with female hands would have less electoral credibility than does Gillard.
Gillard and McTernan are desperate to drag Abbott into the cesspit of their gender division with yet another spurious charge; this time, touching an aboriginal woman on the arm and linking the dastardly deed to domestic violence.
The aboriginal woman, and Labor sympathiser, said she needed counselling and felt like wearing a burka to escape his lascivious clutches. WTF?
Perhaps future Opposition leader Shorten might care to answer the charge that he touched a 23yo staffer somewhere else that necessitated an abortion.
But that’s just another rumour eh?... a rumour that ABC Insiders’ panellists won’t have heard of either
So, who exactly has taken politics to this depth of sewage in a desperate attempt to cling to power? Mmmm.
