    1. Labour chooses Gillard - Rudd is still around, still making noise, people not happy, election disaster.

    2. Labour chooses Rudd - Abott is going to have a field day, people happy, labour has better chances in the elections.

    There's also the "people don't want a party that's divided" factor which will see Labour's results at the election drop.

    THE mood was tense as the country's most political croc sank his teeth into Julia Gillard's face.
    Harry the Psychic has spoken.
    The talented inmate of Crocosaurus Cove went straight for the neck - a sure sign that the Australian leader will keep her throne in tomorrow's ballot against the casualty of her power-grab, Kevin Rudd.


    Hold on I think the croc wants to eat Gillard not choose her!!

    No. They vote after if Kevin wins.

    8.56am Peter Garrett has told Sky News he would not seek to serve in a Kevin Rudd Ministry because Julia Gillard is the best person to lead the country[LEFT][*******#000000]

    Other political parties and the Independents don't get to vote on this at all.
    This is an internal Labor issue that the Labor national caucus will decide on.
    Elections will probably be announced soon though anyway by who ever wins.

    Lets say Kevin wins labour vote he is not PM automatically. Rule is PM is the one that has majority in parliament. That is when the greens and ind. get to vote.

    Damm. Really? Wasnt really much of choice though. I hate hearing Gillard speak though- just that tone she has, grates on the ears, sounds like im back at school and getting in trouble for something.....

    Bring on the next election... Cando Cambell has got a heap of support up this way.

    I think utter ****fight is the political analogy that best describes the Labor Party at present.

    73-29, that's Greek tragedy levels of crash and burn right there, although it sounds like they're counting again. I can't wait to start reading the behind the scene stories, in particular what made Rudd think he had the support to do this. Were people lying to him, was he not listening to his advisors? Who knows.

    When Rudd was ousted even though he was popular it was said people vote for party not for the man. Well next time around people will not for the party at all.

    @EvilMinion

    Possibly he was beliving the news polls which were saying he had public support or was he still being an arrogant pr1ck and over estimated his caucus support?

    Maybe he hasn't 'learnt' anything.
