So let's recap ... two months ago, several key factional (actually small, state-based gangs, formed, like the big C, around the most powerfully malignant cell)  leaders in the ALP organised the deposition of a sitting Prime Minister who had beaten John Howard, because a series of polls suggested that their primary vote was too low to guarantee victory, especially in key outer-suburban seats.

The sub-factional heavies acted swiftly, at least in part, to head off News Ltd's obvious destabilisation campaign spruiking Julia Gillard -- even though said heavies may have been leaking stuff to the papers to aid this campaign, because Kevin Rudd swore at them.
