Bring back my mate Rudd, they stabbed him in the back and his rating never got as low as Gillards...and sack Crean he is and idiot if he thinks they can win the election with Gillard, who's rating as low as a headless chook....there should be a coup in the labor Party, kick out all those that want to keep Gillard and loose the next election just so they don't look fools for having to swallow their pride and bring Kevie back......and he will give Abbott a run for his money...Kev's not a team player they say...didn't see him stab anyone in the back, did you?

The day after Rudd got back in the media would be back to stories about him abusing flight attendants, abusing subordinates, killing insulation installers and chucking hissy fits about hair dryers. The Liberals desperately want him back.

If Abusing someone is a reason not to become PM...we are all in trouble...all of those programs you are talking about are Labors programs and would have been implemented by My mate Kev or Gillard and were...remember how everyone came down on Rudd for trying to implement a labor carbon tax on mining and his popularity sank(never as low as Gillards though)so they fired him to put up Gillard as a smoke screen .....Gillard was successful...funny that...how ignorant do you have to be not to see the reason Rudd was fired was because he disagreed with what the party had in mind.....they were not happy having a leader that disagreed with some of the idiocy that is the Labor party ....the Labor party are saying we put you there...do as we tell you and not what the people want....so blame Kev all you want...and for gods sake don't put the blame where it lies...keep wearing them blinkers....Bring back my Mate Kev!!!

I would like to see Rudd back again - it was very wrong what his own party did to him - as for Gilliard - how can you have success when you're appointment has been based on deceit?

Dump Crean, Gillard,Swan,Abibi,Brandt,Shor ten, Windsor, Oakshott,Wilkie and bring back My Mate Kev....he will win the election for Labor...oops dump most of the backstabbers from the Labor party as well...and get some new blood in there with Kevin at on the bridge....down with those that betrayed our (the peoples) chosen PM.And don't be one of those idiots that say.."But we don't chose the Pm the party does." My response to all you twats is that although that is the case Labor fronted him because he was the most popular choice and that is why most voted for the Labor party in the Rudd election win.Gillard couldn't win in her own right and she is way less popular now......mmmmooookkkkkaaaaayyy yyyy?

Good on you Sairla!...it was very un-Australian by all those who participated in his exit....and I would love to see him get back up in front as someone who has triumphed over them...they were cruel and uncaring.....no PM should ever be removed this way by their party when we "the people" have voted for his face as the face of the party....fair's fair.

I just don't think voting for socialism is good at this moment in time, which is pretty well every party we have, where are our moderate right wingers at?

I admire him for continuing his work, he has carried himself with dignity - which is more than can be said for those who betrayed him - there is no victory in betrayal.

Gillard has never been elected in her own right anyway. She stabbed Rudd in the back & only become PM by doing deals with the Green's in the last election. Now she is their puppet with all these taxes being introduced.

She deserves to be booted. Worst PM Australia has had.
