What you are not understanding is that if Julia puts her job on the line on Tuesday ,she has to vacate her position as PM making the position available and put the vote to the party.
What is bound to happen is that another in the background will be promoted to PM to facilitate peace between the factions to go forward leaving Kevin and Julia in the wings looking on.

Lets see how it goes then hey. I reckon Gillard has and has always had at least 90% of the party vote.

Meanwhile, Channel 7 reports that Rudd has been doing some double dealing, promising certain things to people if they would back him in a vote while at the same time denying doing anything of the sort. Damaging revelation.

From Waynie's comments on Kevin07 and the fact that they both went to the same school, Kevie should apologise for taking Waynie's vegemite sandwich.

Kevin RUDD is being bullied by a group of petty thieves who USURPED HIS POSITION AS PRIME MINISTER. The gang got together, and OVERTHREW OUR PRIME MINISTER.
AND NOW THEY ARE DOING IT AGAIN.
They cut his throat behind his back.
They've done it again as a simple strategy to shift the focus back to them - the pirates who had absolutely NO RESPECT for our Prime Minister and now they are attacking his person, when he was minding his own damned business.

The Gillard Government is not a legitimate, legal Government. They overthrew him as any Dictator does to a leader.
RUDD IS THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB.

This means that political parties are more interested in themselves than of us seeing they get paid for squabbling amoung themselves at our expense

If Kevin wants to come back tell him Kevin 2012 had better be better than Kevin 07 and do what suffering Australians want and not what he thinks they want seeing he has never lived their life.

I think the multi nationals that bankroll both sides of government have been behind this for months in conjunction with the usual media interests. Rudd seems to be the only politician they dont own, and that scares them. Will we ever get a government that works for our interest , and not the interests of big business?....I dont think it's in Australia's intereset to make sure that "shareholders" continue to get richer at our expense......

Crook choices we've got. One who had no balls castrated the other, and the third contender wore his off on a bike seat. lol!

I think Australia should become a republic, vote for a President who can't be overthrown based on the interests of a single party. Only the people, represented by the full Upper and Lower house should have that power.

Funny thing is Julia says KEVIN refuse to tell what went on behind closed doors when she overthrew the Australian Government.

However, you might remember that is was JULIA who SAID she was not going to tell us what went on and she added that SHE NEVER WOULD TELL US.
So much for transparency.

JULIAR THE LIAR YOUR TERM HAS FINISHED. WE THE PEOPLE DIDNOT WANT OR PUT YOU THERE. YOU ARE DOING NOTHING BUT RIPPING US OFF.

BRING BACK KEVIN RUDD. YOU WIL NEVER HAVE KEVIN'S NOUS OR EXPERTISE JULIAR.

YOU DONOT REPRESENT AUSTRALIA OR US.
