Christian Kerr (political writer for The Australian) has just facebooked that “It’s on”:
Massive rumours that a “tap on the shoulder” delegation had dropped in to see the PM have just swept Parliament House. Nothing appears to have happened, but…. A second set says that ministerial chiefs of staffs have been placed on high alert.
A new PM could easily see Canberra in election mode in days time.
UPDATE: Camps Gillard and Rudd are denying anything is on. For what that’s worth.
