Wow, don’t know about you all out there in blogger land but what a crazy day in politics!
Julia Gillard vs…. well sadly no one!
I have predicted this several times but it is of no surprise that no one had the ‘balls’ to take on the poison chalice that is leadership of the labor party!
I have to say my productivity this afternoon at work was pretty minimal, it was very exciting to watch, kind of sad like a car crash, but predictable and inevitable like a flood after 18months of (shit)storms!
No surprise that the outcome occurred, but full credit to Simon Crean for speaking out. It is a huge call, he has been fired from his Ministerial Position
For me the interesting outcome was the vote of no confidence motion this afternoon, while Tonys motion ultimately failed it was interesting to see the cross benchers support it…. does not bode well for holding together a minority government
