Today’s editorial in the Oz could broadly be summarised as “put up or shut up.” Basically they’re saying that they’ve been receiving backgrounding from inside sources who keep indicating the move is on. But who then in public say that the Australian is making stuff up. They are essentially saying that those people need to take a look at themselves – they are either going to do something about changing leader, or else they should shut up and stop ruining their party’s chances of a decent result in the election.
This upcoming week should be interesting. I still see no evidence that Gillard will jump, nor that Rudd will challenge. And after seeing what happened to Crean, I doubt anyone else will attempt to be the catalyst. I still give it less than 50% chance of a challenge.
