Will Chicken Kev find his backbone?

By johnboy - 26 June 2013 35

With Julia Gillard failing to have an attack of the vapours as per his cunning plan ABC News24 is reporting that a spill petition is now being circulated.

A world of change of government and machinery of government may or may not be about to descend on the Public Service here in Canberra.

Even if Rudd does get back in how could the public credibly think Labor would keep him a minute longer than needed for re-election?

What’s Your opinion?

Rudd is all tip and no iceberg nothing will happen

If Rudd looks like getting close watch for the compromise candidate to emerge…

Not a certainty, but a possibility.

If Rudd has the numbers and there is a spill, which I hope there isn’t, then surely the GG would be under all sorts of pressure to dissolve the parliament?

Rudd would be a fking idiot to catch that hospital pass.

A deaf, blind, retarded monkey could see what the game is here. Install him as leader and blame him for the landslide hiding they are about to get.

Exactly.

How is it ‘Chicken’ to choose not to walk in front of a bus?

The only possible reason I could see for him challenging is pure revenge.

Or because he is a party man and believes he would lose less seats than Gillard?

It’s possible although I think the difference overall will be minimal. There’s only so much he can polish the turd.

And Rudd simply won’t be able to keep the numbers behind him long term. It’s a completely desperate move if they go back now.

Rudds better off waiting until after the election and even then I wouldnt think his chances are great with some of the other potentials around.

Rudd is a nasty piece of work.

Best move would be for Rudd to let those people be cleared out, walk in as Opposition leader and from there stamp his authority and make sure that he can’t be taken down as leader until he’s ready.

He’s very foolish if he goes the the election with the way things are, why help save those who would rather dive into the abyss than have him as leader?

Any sympathy that he gained from being “stabbed in the back” will vanish once he does his own stabbing – albeit in the front. And he will be easy pickings for the Liberal election campaign (e.g. “vote Kevin, get Julia”).

Meanwhile, Bill Shorten is sitting back and counting the days until he takes over.

I reckon the best revenge he could get is to do nothing.

Sit by and watch Labor be destroyed at the election. Certain people have a bed they have made, and should be forced to sleep in it.

Rudd shouldn’t take it. He should let those who deposed him reap their rewards. They hate him that much that they’d rather go like lemmings off the cliff than see him in charge again. Its a trap if he takes it up, if he fails and labor loses (not at as badly) then Gillard and Co will say ‘Look! we were right to take him out. The guy can’t win elections!’.

If he sits tight for 3 years in opposition and leads labour in another election, then he’d have a decent chance at regaining the PMship without having a front bench full of turncoats. He’ll be in a stronger position.

He should play the long game rather than the quick victory.

Anyone know how Bill Shorten is getting on with his mother in law right now?
