Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard

By Andrew Bolt ~

It should have been done last year, of course, but Labor keeps finding excuses for failure. Phillip Hudson:

JULIA Gillard is facing renewed pressure on her leadership with some Labor MPs wanting her to consider standing down as Prime Minister before the carbon tax begins on July 1.

Increased chatter in ALP ranks about their dire election prospects even has some raising the prospect of a leadership change as early as next week.

The Australian:

The Weekend Australian has been told that support for Ms Gillard has been “peeling off” after she was unable to explain how a “line had been crossed” on the Thomson affair after spending months defending him.

While former prime minister Kevin Rudd’s supporters have remained silent, some who voted for Ms Gillard in the February leadership count are openly contemplating a switch to Mr Rudd.
