In fact there will be no government Rudd leads. Rudd must be either suicidal or really believe that he is the Messiah to take over Labour now. Maybe it was just blind revenge.
Re-election for Labour was problematic with Julia Gillard but she was a good PM and I would not have written here off. But does Rudd really have any support amongst the bulk of Labour supporter? I don’t think so. From my own little survey it seems that his support comes only from dedicated followers of polling.
What was looking like a big ask has just become like climate change. We know it is coming but think it can be ignored. The human race has a massive capacity for indulging in cognitive dissonance.
There are those who don’t want Abbott and who will not vote for Rudd so where are they going to go? The Greens could win big time. I have a strange vision that maybe the Greens will decide who will be in power after the election. Can you imagine Abbott on his knees begging the Greens for support?
Labour being returned in coalition with the Greens is not an impossible outcome. It might be a good ‘Plan B’ if we are to keep Abbott out.
We might even be able to invite Murdoch the Yank to return to his chosen home.
