I'd have neutered Rudd: Costello | NEWS.com.au. He just lacked two things: the ability to position himself as a viable alternative and the courage to make it happen. Costello seems determined to make a fool of himself. Its over pete - you blew it.
I have worked in politics, public policy and strategic communications for over 30 years. I was recently awarded a doctorate in Australian politics at the University of Sydney. My thesis was on the (changing) relationship between the ALP and unions. I have been blogging since November 2003 and over the past decade I have written many articles on politics, public relations and social media for newspapers, magazines and websites. I love literature particularly John McGahern and James Joyce.
