I agree with you that Atkins has a very good point in his piece If we are to be brutally honest we know that what Gillard is all about at present is trying to firewall her position within the ALP rather than preserving her place in the Lodge. You can bet that Tim has his shed all but packed up and that Gillard has an early booking for the movers to clear her possessions from the lodge on September 15.
As for Satler’s stupidity isn’t it just a cipher for level of contempt that the whole country feels for Gillard? Because if she were more loved and respected by the people his line of questioning would not have been taken in the first place.
Cheers Comrade Yale
JUST A really quick post tonight to share an article, as I am sometimes wont to do; this time it’s an excellent opinion piece by longtime Courier Mail writer Dennis Atkins, who published a pretty succinct analysis of the past 24 hours — and their attendant issues — in that newspaper today.
Atkins, of course, is the columnist whose insights into last year’s state election in Queensland went closest to the mark; it was he who accurately divined the mood on the ground and foresaw the wipeout about to hit Anna Bligh’s government, at a time most commentators still saw the ALP winning about 20 to 25 of Queensland’s 89 seats.
(For the record, I gave them 15 to 20. They won 7).
It’s been an ugly 24 to 48 hours in politics, with yesterday’s uproar over the menu that wasn’t distributed at an LNP fundraiser in March.
