Labor left it too late

Poor policy implementation and Kevin Rudd’s destabilising presence have cruelled Labor’s electoral chances.

What is it with Kevin Rudd? His reputation after Kevin 07 became Kevin 24/7 so clearly his leadership style was not conducive to engaging with his team and building cohesion to lead this nation. BUT what is it more with Ms Gillard? She has implemented great policy, got big ticks from the OECD and has achieved, yet there is still this enormous 'tall poppy' attitude about her needing to be cut down to size and dismissed. She calls inappropriate behaviour (is that a little too confronting for some?), she is always composed and she has the respect of everyone else but seemingly her own country -- so really, what is that about? When you look at accomplishments and that of the Labor party pre and during the GFC her policy is sound. Australia survived that better than anyone and the old cliche of 'spend money, to make money' clearly has its place. A deficit in the current financial climate is not outrageous, particularly when there is plan to bring it back into line. I have to confess to not getting 'politics' and to feeling extremely unsure of the future due to the ongoing attacks on our current prime minister. I think you will find that this period will create a precedent for future inappropriate behaviour and attacks on the office of prime minister and sully the reputation of Australia globally. To all the men and women out there who wonder why the current generation shows no respect -- take a good hard look at our role models!
