If you watched Q&A last Monday you would have seen Tom Switzer, editor of The Spectator Australian saying that Rudd will leak and leak and leak until any prospects of a Gilliard Prime Ministership is all but destroyed.
I don’t know whether Kevin Rudd would be so vengeful to do this. I don’t think he would be. Maybe some of his staffer may be though. Well I have a message for that leaker.
I know that you may have been mightily pissed off at losing a job because of Party machinations. I have been retrenched twice and I know it’s not fun. And it’s normal to think how to get back at people that may have betrayed you.
However this is not just about you I am afraid. By damaging Julia you are likely to help Tony Abbott become Prime Minister. Julia is not fantastic when it comes to progressive policies, but she’s damn better than Tony any day.
Maybe you think that you and your leader may get back to the top if Julia loses. I wouldn’t count on it as conservative governments are very good in staying in power when they get it. But more importantly, why, if you work on the more ‘left’ side of politics inflict Tony Abbott on the rest us because you are pissed off? Don’t you think that maybe there are things that are more important than getting back at people?
This is no movie when betrayed heroes slain their enemies but in the process he goes down with them, this is serious.
So take a breath, think about karma and stop damaging Julia.
