No it doesn't it just appears that it has evavorated within the Labor party, oposition to her lack of leadership and dismal performance in the news polls will remain because with the failing popularity she didn't have the decency to step down and adhere to the peoples choice when given the chance, that doesn't make her strong that makes her desperate. Gillard said it is done and dusted, what nonsence, the media are simply responding to the people and the people overwhelmingly favour Rudd.....so the fact that Gillards motley crew stood firm is a testament to their stuborness and more out of fear than loyalty, they know what would happen if Rudd got in and they know what will happen at the election which is now a foregone conclusion.....Labor will lose!...The people are the ones that will now have to make that decission loud and clear to all parties that we don't stand for anyone usurping a decission made at the polls by the people and no party should have the right to dump a PM without warning and in a PMs first term......We want stability within a party and time enough for the people to tire of a Leader and not have that decission made by those who have shown such disrespect to the Australian voter. Rudd made the right decission not to contest because he didn't have the numbers(the backstabbers and pond scum of Gillards government are clinging to power by their fingernails, and they know it) Rudd knows he is doing "what the people want to see him doing, fighting back, for those that chose him to lead Labor " The peoples choice has not changed and he should make paliament aware of that fact daily.... Some idiots are sayinbg that Gillard hasn't had a fair go as PM, and why should she? Look at what conpired to put her in the position PM....she was disloyal to HER PM , and now the traitor expects loyalty from the one she was disloyal to and his supporters? A tad naive methinks, she will get what she deserves for her treachery....going. Labor will remain divided till she and Swan are out....going.

Gillard and her backstabbing cronies alone are responsible for the destabilisation of the Labor party as the people know it, it is she who brought down a PM ever in his first term, disrespecting the office the person but mostly the power of the position of PM......Gillard is now head hunting the so called traitors within the party, Crean, Bowen the Cheif Whip and Rudd himself, but what should she expect when it was she who defiled the office and created the tension and division within a party that no die hard Labor voter recognises nor wants.
