The more I think about the last few days the more I think that Labour has been conned by Murdoch.
This is what I see as happening. The polls say that Rudd brings Labour back to level with Liberals. But Abbott has been priming his supporters to say that Rudd is the best leader for labour. If you ask Abbott followers who would be the better Labour leader they would say Rudd. But were Labour voters asked?
Murdoch is a master at selective polling and what Kerry O’Brien referred to as Astro-Turfing (creating a false grass roots movement) in his ‘Race to the Bottom’ Wallace Wurth Memorial Lecture at The University of NSW. http://bit.ly/1cpfReU
Now that The Labour party has been conned into dumping the best leader that have had since WW2 let’s see what happens to the numbers. I think we will find that the numbers against Julia Gillard where manipulated down and the numbers for Rudd inflated. Rudd is a dead liability.
Rudd is not the Messiah, just a naughty little boy who went into the corner and stamped his foot and banged his head until he got his own way. Labour, never give in to a 2 year old brat throwing a temper tantrum.
