Along came the party faithful and before he knew what was happening Julia Gillard was in that very chair and the velvet had’nt had time to cool.
Kevin Rudds head must have been spinning. No matter what party is favoured, most agreed that he got the bullet in pretty poor fashion.
You might even say he was a prime candidate for an unfair dismissal claim. It doesn’t seem that he got his three warnings under Federal legislation, he didn’t seem to get counselling and guidance in his duties; he just got the chop in a most public and undignified manner.
Well, like most boomerangs, Kevin Rudd has returned, ‘fessed up and the crap has hit the fan. It’s not pretty, it’s not good for the Labour party, it’s not good for the country. Is it all about competency or ego?
Julia Gillard can’t claim unfair dismissal. She’s had excessive warnings, lots of meetings and advice and practised the art of unfair dismissal herself.
And so the time draws nearer, a moment of truth or deception will be upon us as Monday dawns in the world of politics.
Who will cop the boot, or pump as the case may be?
Who will be sitting in the naughty chair applying band aids.
Who will be Moving Forward to the Back Benches?
Word for today(two words really); Moving Forward. - the most boring and stinky slogan I have ever heard. Come on, what politician in their right mind is going to say to the public ‘Let’s move backward?’. Moving forward? Puke. At last, the opportunity to fire it back to the source.
