ructions in Australia

Post by noth »

Image
In June 2010 Kevin Rudd was Prime Minister of Australia and Julia Gillard Deputy

On 24 June 2010 Julia Gillard became Prime Minister and Rudd became Foreign Minister, he has seethed with rage ever since and his bitterness has quietly boiled and festered away behind closed doors until finally 2 days ago he resigned to challenge Julia Gillard for the Prime Minister job all over again.

On Monday he gets his wish, when Australian MPs vote (again) as to who should be their Prime Minister and Australia's media is in a 48 hour spin until the results are announced late on Monday.

Meanwhile critics allege that all this has ruined the Labor Party's chances for the upcoming elections next year.
