With about 30 minutes before the Labor Caucus starts its leadership meeting it looks like Julia Gillard has the numbers to win.
With an estimated 66 votes out 115 Julia Gillard looks to be our first female PM.
I can’t help thinking that if Kevin Rudd had listened to other people more instead of blindly pushing on with his own ideas he may not be in this position now.
In what seems to be just another sign of Kevin Rudd’s arrogance I have heard that rather than make calls to Labor MP’s himself, he had staffers make the calls. If any MP’s were having a bit of trouble making up their mind that call just made it so much easier.
Whatever happens we will find out after 9am who will be Prime Minister.
How will this change Labor’s direction and how will it change the upcoming election?
