The ABC has the unexpected news that Major General
Mike Mark Kelly (ABC has his name wrong, he’s currently on the ADF’s leaders page), currently the land commander of the Australian Army is going to run against the Liberal’s little loved Gary Nairn in next door’s Eden Monaro.
Looks like the Liberals will need to wheel out Peter Cosgrove sooner than expected.
UPDATED: It would appear the first story was complete arse, well done ABC Sunday monkeys. A new story (presumably more accurate than the last) reports that it is Colonel Mike Kelly (of AWB fame) who is running. Our sincere apologies to Major General Mark Kelly.
