The ALP falling apart

The Party is tearing itself apart. Great political theatre. News.com.au is doing a live update. Developments today include:

  • Labor hid polls from their own leader so Rudd could be rolled in 2010
  • A Labor MP has called om the Chief Govt Whip to resign for disloyalty to Gillard
  • Rudd and Crean discussing a leader-deputy ticket to roll Gillard
  • Simon Crean has both called on party to unite behind Gillard and also attacked her for “the class warfare politics she has waged”
  • Labor has backed down and withdrawn their media regulation bills
  • Crean has now called for a leadership spill and says he will not stand for leader, but will for deputy.

Glorious fun,
