Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
You know when John Howard and Peter Costello were negotiating the details of the GST deal with Meg Lees, she insisted on there being money set aside for the development of green energy research or some such thing.
Costello leaned over to Howard and said "Offer her six to put into it"
So Howard said "We'll put $600 million into it", which went a long way to sealing the deal.
Costello went pale, because he'd meant $6 million.
True story, apparently.

Haha yeah the only reason we haven't seen something roughly like this
beforein the recent past was because Costello was a weak ****

Rudd won't let Gillard have the last word.
He's a mad bastard.
I wouldn't rule him out of doing anything, including quitting (but not until later this year) if he thinks he can't become PM again).
He just doesn't let things rest; won't let Gillard get the better of him
Genuinely impressed by Gillard's performance in the press conference today. Hope to see more of that side of her.
I think I've said it before - Gillard, IMO, is a fine politician and a fine policy worker, but she must surely have the worst bunch of minders and political staff in history.
I think she lacks political judgment, and it's not helped by her staff. She's across every brief though, and is the best performer in parliament at the moment on either side (not that it's a stellar cast mind).
But she should be more like herself. When she tries not to be, she is so stilted it's ridiculous.
She's sociable. She has no "magnetism" though. She's the anti-JFK.
She's Bob Hawke without the charisma
Can't scull a pot as well, either. Not many who can, tbf.
