    The ridiculous thing is that they havent done that badly and the budgie smuggler is hardly the most attractive alternative

    Unfortunately, they are all so **** scared at losing their jobs that rationality went out the window a long time ago

    Both sides are in it for the pension and the paycheck...unfortunately Labor seem to be hellbent on making it blatantly obvious. Personally I think Crean got a bit carried away with the headlines.

    The Rudd plan that's now in the bin | News.com.au

    But one Labor MP, who supports Mr Rudd, said the former PM had made a smart move not to contest because two failed attempts would have made it harder.

    "We're still alive," the MP said.

    Rudd Says It's Over

    Surely he shouldn't contest the next election then

    It's undignified for a former PM to linger on as a backbencher

    Yeah the fact that Labor has effectively sent us the message that Ferguson and Crean were the problem sums it all up. Both good men.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
