Couldn’t have put it better myself. Gillard has now irretrievably lost my vote. I don’t care about stategic politicking, I want substance and integrity from the leaders I vote for. Gillard has neither of those virtues, nor a dozen others I could nominate(though her ooposite number has even fewer – a wretched state of affairs).
Labor now has to win my vote back, and I’m sure I’m only one of many thousands of thinking Australians disenchanted, adrift and potentially lost for this generation and more. The Greens benefit, but I’m not sure the country does. And Labor? Fucked unless they do something quick.
