Rudd reclaims number one spot, beats Iron Lady

Rudd's number one but will he ever be again?

John Chalmers

Rudd’s number one! Ever again? Clearly that would be over a large number of dead bodies, including Swan, Crean, Conroy and Roxon.

Following the unprecedented public vitriol the spin from the Labor Party and some in the media is that the fallout from this challenge may actually improve public perception, as the PM has shown hardy resolve in the last few days and the reshuffle provides Gillard with the opportunity to demonstrate political shrewdness, although the Carr stories may have already blown that one. Methinks the vibe remains toxic, and it’s the vibe of which it will be hardest to be rid, rather than the public’s memory of any specific comments or events.

    Ah! Kevin on top again – must be what drives the lesser beings into a
    frenzy of “look at moi, please, please look at moi”! Serves them right!
    I hope they all get ignored by the media forthwith!!
