Shorten has changed sides, he is going with Rudd. The place is falling apart. If Gillard does win, she is going to have to re-shuffle again, and there won't be many left to fill the jobs. I think we are witnessing a total melt down of the ALP, however the numbers fall.

Shorten is backing Rudd:(

Andu 26th Jun 2013 08:44

Little Bill has eaten major crow and is backing the individual he rolled three years ago.

My God they must be desperate, knowing the absolute feast the Libs are going to make of Rudd being back at the rudderless helm

There you go. Can I change my bet? :\ Shorten's squarely AWU.

Yep. :sad:

"OK. He's running because Australians want him to save the furniture and block Work Choices."

And why wouldn't you?? I know what TA released a while back, and I know what a liar he is as well!! 'Malcolm has my 100% support' etc

"I don't believe that for a minute. They are both squarely focused on power. Not the good of the country, but power."

Me neither....and Windsor said the same of TA., we know that after the negotiations he had with TA

But really......why in God's name would Rudd stand?? Someone earlier mentioned going down valiantly fighting and being remembered as such.....but really? Hand over to shorten.....and repeat brendan nelson's marvellous tenure after a white wash????

Another Pruner posted this elsewhere, but I found it funny;

I hope it's a tie, then they both have to quit!

Footage of Gillard walking into the caucus room with only 15 people.

Looks good for Rudd.

Then.......footage of Rudd walking down the corridor, all alone.

SOPS 26th Jun 2013 09:02

The clock is ticking now ........

Could be a ploy...

This has to be the best warm up act for a State of Origin match.

What can they arrange for Origin 3? :eek:

Worrals in the wilds 26th Jun 2013 09:08

Cooda, ROFLMAO. ;)
Last minute wild card bet; hung vote and Shorten takes charge. :E

Fliegenmong 26th Jun 2013 09:12

The retiring independents withdrawn support, as the agreement was with Juliar.....we go to an early fed election.....and the carbon tax is repealled and the boats stop before Spring??? :D:D Just typing out loud!

SOPS 26th Jun 2013 09:14

Sky News reporting that Rudd has won.( when you think about it, this whole thing is a complete joke...what a way to try and run the country!)

Worrals in the wilds 26th Jun 2013 09:22

I saw that. As The Project has pointed out, if so he still has one sitting day of Parliament and we'll see how the Independents roll...anyone smell No Confidence from the retirees with the fabulous guaranteed super packages?:hmm:

Will the faceless men be putting on their make up after this?

Another Reds V Blues match.

ChrisJ800 26th Jun 2013 09:43

Go Kev, but more importantly go the blues !

Buster Hyman 26th Jun 2013 09:43

Well, the sooner Tony gets in, the sooner the boats will stop...

Takan Inchovit 26th Jun 2013 09:47

I guess after whoever wins this, neither will be around after September. :E

Buster Hyman 26th Jun 2013 09:55

Ding dong the Witch is dead!

emeritus 26th Jun 2013 10:02

Damn....I was hoping she would retain the leadership by a slim majority.:(
