Anthony Albanese never saw himself as PM, he was happy as chief Left faction poo kicker. But a week is a long time in politics and a few days counting numbers and gazing into the bathroom mirror is all Albo needed to see himself as leader of the Opposition.

 Bill Shorten believes his time has come but Caucus doesn’t feel the same way, and for damned good reasons.

Shorten wanted to bypass his Caucus “mates” and stand unopposed but now finds Albo’s epiphany has given him serious competition. If the ALP wants to recover lost ground in Opposition it needs an Albo, certainly not a Shorten.

Let’s face it, Shorten is yesterday’s man and the architect of Labor’s current malaise and he has made many enemies within the Party.

Paul (Piggy) Howes’ lustful expectation of taking Bob Carr’s Senate vacancy is now in doubt and that alone is testament to the Shorten/AWU lack of clout.

As anointed protégé of the AWU’s Big Bill Ludwig, Shorten engineered Rudd’s original demise in favour of Gillard. He continuously swore allegiance to Julia until, 20 minutes before Rudd’s final tilt at PM, he swapped sides carrying with him sufficient votes to bury Gillard.

Make no mistake, it was Shorten, with the backing of the AWU, who reinstalled the ridiculous Rudd as PM. It was Shorten who intended to profit from Rudd’s expected annihilation. It’s just that he figured Gillard would give him less of a team to work with in Opposition.

After the election Shorten expected to mount the dais to thunderous applause, but there has been nothing but silent apprehension… Labor is wary of his treacherous disloyalty.

They understand everything Bill has done has been for Bill, with the help of his corrupt AWU.

The word inside Labor now is that Bill is a gonner so Albo has publicly thrown his hat in the ring. He knows the mood of Caucus better than anyone.

Shorten would bring with him the stench of the past. He is the living symbol of all that is distasteful, corrupt and plain wrong with the Labor Party.

Albo has stayed true to his Labor ethics and his acidic tongue and derisory invective is a formidable kit to carry into Opposition.

Ask Abbott who he would prefer as Opposition leader and without hesitation he will say Bill Shorten.

And that’s why Anthony Albanese should get the job.

I just heard this little rodent criticising Abbott for NOT having lots of Ministers, ie.; Minister for Ageing, Minister for Seniors, Minister for Disabilities, etc.etc. etc.
right after I heard Abbott saying he was SIMPLIFYING the Ministries (eg. All of the above would fall under Minister for Health.
Makes sense to me Tony!
You have to squeak like a Mouse before Albo will understand though.

Who should be the next leader of federal Labor? Albanese? The card carrying communist who allegedly frequents Thai brothels. A minister apparently loyal to Rudd, then Gillard then Rudd to save his own hide and climb the career ladder. He has the same appeal as Rudd, coming across as a hip guy when in actuality is a giant dickhead. Plibersek? Gillard acolyte and married to a convicted drug trafficker. She holds more Green than Labor values and supported Rudd in the recent leadership spill in order to keep her job. Or, Shorten? The Australian Workers Union’s puppet and union king… Read more »

I wonder who’s paying for this leadership circus. I hope they don’t imagine that there is public money going into it – all in the national interest of course. I am so tired of these fucking losers thinking that they are important enough to show their stupid faces on the public stage. They really belong to history’s dustbin.

The Australian people particularly in Sydney NSW should not have to suffer Albanese a moment longer. This is the man that made sure Ian McDonald (ICAC now pending charges) stayed in the job. Albanese is the man that denied the people of Western Sydney its railway. Barry O’Farrell continued regardless. Anthony Albanese is the man that told Parliament the Sydney goods railway bypass would cost 400 mnillion. It cost 1.1 billion. Anthony Albanese is the man who vainly danced around the Orange Grove public school Lilyfield shouting hysterically vote for me (laughing) and getting his polling booth workers to take… Read more »

Albo is a sleasy little dago prick! His wife had a very public affair with fellow state ALP shadow police minister Paul Gibson in the 90’s. Probably because Albo being a typical ALP scum bag can’t keep his dick in his pants! Hard to understand what any woman would see in the fat liittle turd! The microscope needs to be put over this prick, he has form. Lets have a proper look at this guys connections to the criminal element at Mascot Airport and his interference with anything to do with progress there. Afterall what was the real intent of… Read more »

I loathe and detest the “Labor Liars Pardie” as there is not a true believer amongst them. I would not vote for them under threat of a firing squad. BUT, unless there next useless “Labor leader” leader expels that most poisonous, treacherous, mentally ill, self important mongrel Rudd from its ranks his chances at any future election are zero!

I bet the ALP are forever grateful to Kevin – he has, for his own usual very selfish reasons, considering number 1 only, set up a leadership selection system that ensures that the pardy will have no elected leader for a month, and then be stuck with Shorten or Albasleezy for as long as the incumbent wishes.

Headline from the Herald-Sun on line: “Albo: ‘I am up to a hard job’. I think there was a spelling error – should have read “hand job” possibly somewhere in his electorate, if one can believe rumours posted in this site.

Let’s compare Rudd and Abbott. Rudd got sworn in after he won the 2007 election and in 2013, he wasted no time to be sworn in
Abbott is still PM elect, not sworn in yet
Rudd moved into a Lodge that needed 6 months of repairs and Abbott is prepared to wait
So it’s clear Rudd wanted the title and the residence as fast as possible, that was his goal, while Abbott is at work and titles come second

Lots of people are anti Albanese but in the last two parliaments he was the most effective ALP performer by the length of the straight. You may not like him, I don’t, but you would be foolish to think he is not effective. He knows politics in its purest form and he has very effectively stymied, frustrated, enraged and niggled the LNP at least a hundred times in the last 6 years. Write him off at your peril…
