Mulcahy knifes “supports” his leader

johnboy 14 February 2006 1

The dashing Ben Doherty in the Canberra Times is reporting on the vicious attacks guarded support of Richard Mulcahy for his leader in the fallout of the “Sh*t from Clay” incident.

Asked about leadership tensions within the party, Mr Mulcahy said he supported Mr Smyth, but he did not shy away from his own leadership ambitions.

“Many people in politics have ambition for higher office. There is nothing wrong with that, that’s recognised as fair and reasonable. But at the present time, we have a team that was elected after the 2004 election and unless there’s a prevailing view that that’s not working or that something different has to happen, then that’s the way we will proceed.”

Mr Mulcahy also conceded the Convention Central plan unveiled by Mr Smyth last Monday had not been fully costed, and was light on funding detail.

Does that mean that Smyth “has his full support” in the best Yes Minister tradition?
