    The Mining Tax brought down Kevin, and it may bring him back

    I think things are so fluid that all Rudd needs for a trigger is for Gillard to have a Karl Rove moment

    Gillard is Finished

    The preferred PM figures are just as devastating as the two-party preferred

    When Kevin gets out of his cold shower he will lead the ALP to the next election

    I think Gillard will resign/call a spill within the next two months, Rudd wins, party starts to leak incriminating stuff, Rudd forced to early election as he loses a no-confidence bid due to major elements of the party hating him, Rudd takes Labor to a respectable loss ala 2001 rather than a bloodbath.

    Nah Labor is going to get absolutely demolished, Rudd or no Rudd, make no bones about it.

    I am not a fan of Abbott by any stretch (duh), but the fact he is going to be PM is an absolute indictment on Gillard and if he implements ****house/discriminatory policies I will lay the blame on her not him. She will have to live with that throughout her legacy. It was all so promising in 2010 when she took over and it has gone down the toilet primarily due to piss poor management and some of the worst communication to the electorate this country must have seen in a while.

    Disappointing to say the least.

    I dunno if Abbott will implement really discriminatory policies. He will try but I doubt that Labor will do bad enough that the LNP will control the Senate, or at least have the BOP with the DLP.

    Yeah who knows, I said 'if'. He may be a completely different PM to people that don't like him think he'll be. Its quite difficult to know, because he's been in pure Opposition Leader (and fair enough (to an extent)) mode for so long now. Who the **** knows how he'll lead.

    It's clearly time to change their strategy. Just blaming Abbott or being negative about him isn't working. I'd still say over 50% of the population like their policy platform but they have managed to annoy enough voters to lose them the election. In the battle of the memes, the vibe I get is that

    Abbott sexist/Dodgy << Labor are incompetent.

    It was working though. But they have too many bad apples within their party that even with many not liking Abbott, and many going "oh carbon tax wasn't that bad" they still stink of incompetence/corruption/****-up that even Abbott can dominate a victory. After 2010 I was like "oh wow Abbott has surpassed all expectations" but you still wouldn't think that he'd ever landslide an election.

    Well he's about to.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
