Federal Government

UNTHINKABLE: Rudd is a goner but will stay in Parliament!

Kevin Rudd is almost certain to be rolled as Prime Minister in a caucus ballot on Thursday morning.

It is anticipated among caucus members that Gillard will be running on a ticket with Treasurer Wayne Swan as Deputy.

Rudd’s press conference on Wednesday night made a number of pointed attacks on “factional leaders,” an approach that did remind us of Nathan Rees’s ungracious departure as NSW Premier. His references to lurching to the right and such bordered on the completely self-destructive and also looked like he was salting the earth for those following him.

That approach will do much to erode sympathy for a Labor moderate PM who was just recently riding so high in the polls.

Many caucus insiders believe Bill Shorten will be supported by the caucus if there’s a vacancy in the ministry in the event of Rudd’s departure.

There’ll be many tears tomorrow in the ALP on Thursday whatever the result.

It’s an unprecedented situation.

And a powerful reminder of the costs of swaggering and not listening. The price of policy self-indulgence. The danger of coasting.

Our sources say the result won’t even be close. They’d better hope they’re right. Either way, Kevin Rudd is fatally wounded.

UPDATE: While most of the Labor Right from across Australia will be supporting a change to Julia Gillard, VEXNEWS has learned that three Queensland “Old Guard” (the right faction of which Rudd is notionally a member) MPs will be supporting him being Bidgood, Neumann and Furner. Two other Queensland MPs, Chris Trevor and Jon Sullivan have been telling colleagues they’ll not re-contest their seats if Rudd is rolled, which could potentially be some bad press in Gillard’s first days as leader.

UPDATE: Caucus sources tell VEXNEWS that ALP National Secretariat private polling showed “diabolical” results for Rudd and that has played a crucial role in terrifying MPs out of support for a first-term Labor Prime Minister. “The punters have stopped listening to Rudd, and the results were getting worse each time.” Polling sent by ALP national secretary Karl Bitar was so devastating this week, sources say, that Rudd’s COS Alister Jordan ordered that it not be circulated to anyone in the government, including cabinet ministers.

THURSDAY UPDATE: As VEXNEWS reported last night, it won’t be close. Gillard will win comfortably with only her most committed of personal foes in the caucus refusing to support change. Those who are fond of Kevin Rudd will be hoping he summons everything he can to go out graciously. We suspect Labor people at least want to remember him fondly, they are a sentimental lot.

THURSDAY UPDATE: Expect an election very soon, Labor insiders say. Kevin Rudd will not be sticking around as the Member for Griffith. A by-election there isn’t really an option so there’ll be a federal poll very soon. Can you feel the drama? [VEXNEWS: Rudd quickly proved them wrong by indicating he’s staying on. Even more drama]

THURSDAY UPDATE: Kevin Rudd has apparently indicated that he won’t be contesting against Julia Gillard and that she will be elected unopposed.

THURSDAY UPDATE: It’s official. Kevin Rudd didn’t nominate for the leadership, with Julia Gillard elected unopposed and Wayne Swan – as VEXNEWS exclusively reported yesterday – elected as deputy leader.

THURSDAY UPDATE: And to add shock to surprise, Rudd in his valedictory remarks has indicated that he is willing to serve in any capacity he’s required (code for being a minister) and he will be staying in Parliament as the member for Griffith. What a classic.

  13. Fear does not grow Australia as a community, it makes us sick in the stomach as individuals.
    ‘Jobs for the boys’ does not inspire motivation and demand for more and better quality education to improve Australia’s productive capacity and competitive edge, it breeds despair, bitterness and apathy.
    Lack of mature experienced and well-educated advisors does not produce positive policy outcomes and electoral win, it generates insulting sound bites, a disconnect with ordinary Australians and electorally damaging policy results.
    Ideologs and apparatchiks are passé
    Capitalism is not about workchoices, it’s about identifying and appropriately allocating the best resources to their highest and best use.
    Bring on Gillard and real change to and respect for work, people and the allocation of Australia’s precious resources.

    Kevin Rudd is being kicked when he is down you didnt even give him a chance to ever bounce back
    One day Julia the knives may be out for you too!
    Julia you may have just brought the ALPs chances of winning at the next election down by a clear mile

  23. This is historic stuff, but so was the stirring speech by that great patriot, Senator Stephen Conroy, during last night’s Adjournment Debate. His fearless expose’ of what happened during and after the George Brouwer Brimbank Inquisition merits attention. The actions of Lachlan McCulloch need to be investigated, as do Brouwer’s acquiescence or complicity. Hakki Suleyman and his family have been subjected to character and political assassination, and it is high time the public record was corrected. The Age’s role in this scurrilous affair was brilliantly articulated by the Senator. During his speech, Senator Conroy described Hakki Suleyman as a friend. He is also a friend of freedom and a crusader against tyranny.

  34. I have known Gillard for over 25 years and worked with her for 6 as a member of the ALP Branch executive in Carlton. She is very impressive and has the ability to cross bridges and factional support. She is without any doubt more then capable to secure a Labor second term.

    Her election to the leadership and Prime Minister of Australia is welcomed and will underpin and secure a number of ALP Federal seats not only in Victoria but accross Australia.

    Having attended the ALP State Conference last weekend there was ongoing discussion and broad support on the conference floor for Gillard.

    It also needs to be stated that Gillard did not seek to undermine Kevin Rudd and the change in leadership should not be seen as a power grab. Gillard has always placed the interest of the Labor Party ahead of faction and her own personal interests.

    He ascension to the PM position was enthusiastically been embraced and has already reinvigorated the ALP.

However, why I am I not suprised, the NSW right at their best and of course the evil Michael Williamson. This person, together with KJackson have ruined the Victorian HSU, changed rules, merged the branches, all without the vote of their members. Egomaniacs is not good enough for these scum. Cut up your labor membership, and vote either Greens or dummy

  40. A woman as our Queen, a woman as Governor General and now a woman as PM. Well done ladies. The ALP would have lost the election with Rudd as leader but I think Labour will win with Gillard as leader.

    Another interesting fact is that both leaders were born overseas; Gillard in Wales (UK) and Abbott in London (UK). If they were Americans they could not be President. Our Westminster system is superior to anything American.

  41. My vote was locked into Liberal in spite of Abbott not being smart enough to just SHUT UP and let Rudd hang himself.

    Now its back onto the fence to see what the campaign brings. Im going to imagine the same is quite true of many middle voters. My circle of at-work-email friends who barely follow politics were applauding as one the end of “KRUDD the DUD”. Even the laborites who vote labor because their parents told them liberals are spawned in hell were turned off Kevin.

  45. Gillard’s [performance in the Parliament and her press conference has been impressive. The Government has not lost a beat in pursuing its agenda of securing the wealth and health of the Australian electorate.

    He elevation to the Priministership has reinvigorated the ALLP and re focused attention on the issues that matter. The economy, jobs, environment, health, housing and education.

    The Rudd government was a record breaking reformist government and the Gillard Government will continue to move Australia forward. Focusing on the issues that count.

    The main issue being preventing the election of an Abbott Liberal Government.

  56. I am of the view that Rudd was a good Prime Minister but equally supportive and convinced that Julia Gillard will do as equally as well if not better. Australia is a parliamentary democracy and the team is just as important as its captain. Labor has the team that can deliver the best outcome.
    The alternative Abbott government scares me much more. If Gillard can assist in keeping Abbott out of office then she will have my full support

  60. Disgusting really, now that it two female puppets being operated by the NSW Right. You have to seriously question how the likes of Arbib can pull this off. First, the NSW ALP heavy Rudd to scrap the ETS because of concern in NSW over the flow on effect to electricity prices, then when the issue causes a tank in the polls they blame Rudd. Then we have the NSW ALP polling in NSW and getting shocking results, they fail to acknowledge that it is the hatred of voters toward the NSW ALP that has spilt over into the federal sphere. The NSW ALP has so completely destroyed the ALP brand, this was reflected in the poll results done by the very people who caused the problem. Then they blame that on Kevin Rudd, yeah ok, that all works. The NSW Right are f*cking sociopaths, and they will pay for this. Just check out the straw polls on the NSW newspaper sites over 10’000 responses and 70%+ saying they will vote for Abbott. I was not a Rudd fan but this move is just disgusting and as I lifelong ALP voter, they have lost me.

  68. The problem in all of this is that the NSW Right morons, Arbib and Bitar have yet again avoided being exposed as two people who have little skill. They use party polling, their place as party officials, not to win elections but to deter attention away from their own shortcomings.

    The other story out of all of this is the useless talent pool at the ALP National Sectretariat. Many punters have described this NSW dominated office as a campaign unit that could not beat a bunch of 20 year olds at a campus ballot. Hell, they all still use the same campaign techniques that many moved on from in the 1990s.

    You only have to speak to marginal seat members for 5 seconds to hear their total distain for this mob.

    How much money has Bitar raised?
    How many elections have they won?
    When was the last time you saw a great and creative campaign add or idea from them?
    When was the last time they used polling to inspire good ideas rather then big note themselves on the hill or talk down on an MP or simply hide the fact they have no idea?

    Someone should do a poll amongst Labor marginal seat members and see how many in fact rate these guys?

  74. Julia is not smart, is not popular and is not going to be around very long. The signs are there already, despite the medias best attempts to make this seem like a good thing, polling shows how hostile the vast majority of Australians are to the ALP and anyone that was a member of the Rudd cabinet. Pathetic, desperate and it looks like it too. Aside from promising to have the unions exterminated and their assets nationalised she will continue to fall in poll after tragic poll unless she can somehow convince people that the ALP are no longer socialists. Its not really just her and Rudd and the ALP but the fact that the political philosophy of socialism is becoming extinct in all areas of modern life, people are seing it for the self serving thievery it is and have been turned off most especially by the calibre of person it keeps pushing for parliament. Corrupt retards with no spine(excepting Tanner and Faulkner). Paul Howes and Gillard both spring to mind, neither have worked nor even been in a position where their abilities are scrutinised by people who aren’t payrolled or illiterate. Ask anyone, outside of the Special Ed. class that is the ALP, how well Gillard did as education minister and they will tell you she didn’t just suck but sucked real bad. They won’t forget and they won’t be fooled by her femininity, she’s just another cheap crappy union made product of the ALP that comes with a multibillion dollar price tag.
