I agree with Julia Gillard

UPDATE: 6:40PM, Bill Shorten has thrown his support behind Rudd. He is a Labour Powerbroker and the voice of the Unions, Rudd all but has the nomination tied up!

Wow…. I never thought I would utter such words

The Prime Minister of Australia has called for an end to speculation and division by calling for a ballot tonight at 7pm. She has also said that the loser should quit politics immediately. I agree, it is time for this crap to end and for someone to lead the country until the next election, whenever that may be.

The Prime Minister has employed a similar tactic to the one she deployed back in February – bringing the ballot on quickly rather than letting numbers drift away over time.

It is a high risk strategy but, if the past three years have demonstrated anything, it is that Ms Gillard is not afraid of a fight and that she has nerves of steel.

The difference this time is that Ms Gillard has set the bar high for the loser – that he (because we all know who she is talking about) will leave politics forever and stop acting as a thorn in the side for whoever remains in control.

Tonight will be the third time the caucus has dealt with the party’s leadership since the 2010 election (the previous occasions were February 2012 and March this year).

The Prime Minister is about as cunning as Rudd, I have no doubt she believes she has the numbers, if not she would never make this call. All eyes will be on the TV screens tonight from 7pm.

As Homepaddock hints at, will the MPs listen to the public or the unions?
