Kevin Rudd

December 5, 2006

Labor has chosen for a change. Kevin Rudd has won the labor leader ballot. He wants to introduce some new faces to the shadow government. What will he do: “There’s too much short termism in Australian politics. The more I move around the Australian community the more people want to know ‘What is the long term?’ When you’re looking at the big ones like climate change, they want to know whether you’re real or whether you’re just coming up with something that sounds good between now and the next election.”

For Beazley, it was a particular sad day, as he lost the election and – more dramatic – his brother died in Perth.
