what? the faceless persons (they are not men) decided that Rudd would not stand! Not Rudd himself? I am incredulous!

I agree with Martin Ferguson that Labor did an outstanding job dealing with the GFC, between the moderate stimulus spending, bank guarantees for depositors, and 'lending' Australia's AAA credit rating to the Big 4 Banks that were ONLY rated AA (Australia's 4 out of JUST 12 globally!) I have nothing but praise for the government's actions responding to the GFC, and I'm NOT a Labor voter. But the government has lost its way BADLY in recent times.
