    Last thing Gillard needed was this **** to come up about her resignation at Slaters and some ex-bf of hers being a crook.

    If it continues, could well and truly be the final nail in the coffin.

    Pay attention mate. This dross gets dragged up periodically and has since 2007. It's out this time courtesy of Larry Pickering, con man extraordinaire, an has got a run in the Lolstralian because it's a Newspoll fortnight and there's been no Ruddstoration this week.

    Timing is a bit different now when she's PM post the recent election and rightly or wrongly has a trust problem.

    Clearly its absolute gutter politics, but I'm hardly justifying it. Just saying it isn't exactly helping her!

    Meh, it was brought up last year on radio here too. There's nothing to it, though of the filth want to run with it then the word is it'll be open season, including the issue of the member for Sturt's trip to New York a few years back, Mirrabella and the LOTO himself.

    Guess we wait and see.

    Yeah struggling to think of a bigger non-issue over the last few years. And man there have been a few.

    It's reminiscent of what happened during the GOP primaries. "I'm not saying you've done anything wrong, but I'm just asking..."

    ****, The Australian are not letting go. Another day of articles about Gillard and her time at S&G.

    Not surprising I know, but Jesus. How did Peter Gordon's statement get leaked I wonder?

    The Libs are obviously a bit desperate after the Carbon tax didn't result in the downfall of the nation like they'd so boldly predicted. After the insistence that Kevin Rudd would be back again and the failure to get an election before the tax came in this is the next step.

    Can't wait until they turn their eye to something like a policy budget again, should provide more laughter and mirth.

    I do miss Tony in a hardhat though I do have to say. I want the next scandal to be rumours that Tony and Julia are sleeping together.

    I'd be incredibly surprised if an extension wasn't granted.

    I love the nature of these reports, where you say "no one suggests the Prime Minister did anything wrong".

    Then conclude your article by saying "The Prime Minister has questions to answer". Without asking any.

    Ridiculous. Will have no impact at all. The funniest part of the whole thing was Richo on q&a saying the PM shouldn't have spoken to Payl Kelly as she did because he's an experienced journalist. Hilarious.

    If the next Newpoll is 52-48 or 51-49 Abbott will flat out implode. The most poll driven LOTO ever.

    The PM, her ex-lover, the cartoonist, the union and the media (social and otherwise)

    Pretty good editorial. Its grubby politics, but it is having an affect, it is getting air time, and she should probably just clear it up.
