The results of the Australian elections, just held, have highlighted a number of things that, if not addressed, will spell the end of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) in terms of the party being able to retain any future support of the Australian electorate.

There is no doubt the ALP stuffed up a number of perfectly viable initiatives that in 2007 brought the party into power, through lack of supervision and the pure incompetency of various ministers, including Julia Gillard. The Emissions Trading Scheme, the Home Insulation Scheme and a host of other worthwhile initiatives were all virtually rendered useless through incompetency and the inability to grasp what was actually going on within the electorate.

Also, the fact the Labor Government was in fact not run by the

There is no doubt the ALP stuffed up a number of perfectly viable initiatives that in 2007 brought the party into power, through lack of supervision and the pure incompetency of various ministers, including Julia Gillard.
Government but rather by a rather nasty few elected and non-elected wannabe power-brokers did not assist then Prime Minister Rudd in terms of achieving want he wanted to achieve, leading to the likes of Bill Shorten, Mark Arbib and Julia Gillard mounting a coup against Kevin Rudd, a coup that has been grossly underestimated in terms of the public resentment it eventually created.

Coup-leader Gillard, despite trying to distance herself from Kevin Rudd in terms of denying that she played any part in the coup processes while in actual fact she had her fingerprints all over the coup, tried to portray she no part in the process. The portrayal backfired, badly. The fact also is that, had Gillard done her job properly in the first place as Deputy Prime Minister, she should have acted upon any problems, not by deposing her leader but by solving the problems.

The elections came and went with the result that Labor is now fighting to remain in Government in Australia. Labor coup-leaders and others have since blamed Kevin Rudd for derailing their election chances, which is of course total nonsense.
"
Those who removed Rudd as Prime Minister mainly being Julia Gillard, Bill Shorten and Mark Arbib should be removed from any further decision processes within the ALP.

If Labor wishes to retain any credibility in the eyes of Australian voters, a number of things must take place. First of all, the lunatic right-wing power-broking machine of the ALP must have its power removed and such powers returned to the electorate, meaning the Australian voters. Those who removed Rudd as Prime Minister mainly being Julia Gillard, Bill Shorten and Mark Arbib should be removed from any further decision processes within the ALP. In fact, given their actions, I am of the view that they should resign from Parliament as well. Labor must indeed get the message that it does not determine policy, the electorate will do that, and that its role in Australia is purely to comply with the wishes of Australian voters and not with the wishes of ALP power-brokers.

In all, should Labor not be able to clean up its act, I think that Labor and the Australian electorate will have to part company until such time that Labor has gone through some major reforms. At this point in time though, the stench of Labor power-brokers writing the rules has finally caught the noses of Australian voters and they have indeed rejected it.

And like it or not.

GILLARD KNEW ABOUT FAILED HOME INSULATION SCHEME. RESULT? FOUR DEAD AND 200 HOUSES DESTROYED BY FIRE

One aspect of the Australian Government in which coup-leader Julia Gillard played a major role as Deputy Prime Minister has been very conveniently swept aside by Gillard and her off-siders during the current Australian election campaign has been the totally failed home insulation scheme through which four people subsequently died, a number of Australian were injured and through which over 200 Australian homes were destroyed by fire.

A GILLARD GOVERNMENT IN AUSTRALIA? THERE IS NO SUCH THING

The Australian elections thus far have been the most monotonous processes ever encountered in Australian politics but there are a couple of aspects of it that perhaps should be brought into view. First of all, Labor’s coup-leader, Julia Gillard, keeps on waffling on about a re-elected Gillard Government as if the coup against Prime Minister Kevin Rudd never happened. I would contest that in that instance, a Gillard Government cannot be re-elected as there was never a Gillard Government in the first place.

WILL THE REAL AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER PLEASE STAND UP?

Australian has lots of former Prime Ministers, wannabe Prime Ministers, could-have-been Prime Ministers and indeed should-have-been-Prime Minister but there is only one Australian who says she is the Prime Minister but who is really nothing more than an example of being just another a coup-leader. Coup-leader Julia Gillard is currently promoting the virtues of a Gillard Government when in reality there is no and never was a Gillard Government in the first place.

COUP LEADER JULIA GILLARD MOVING FORWARD IN CIRCLES

After two weeks of electioneering, there are signs of desperation within the Australian Labor Party after the Australian public appears to begin to see through the ALP’s cheap and nasty tactics which began by the various factions within the party, and coup leader Gillard in particular, deposing Kevin Rudd as Prime Minister and by doing so in a particularly nasty fashion, so raising serious voter doubts and indeed more than a few ‘second thoughts’ about electing Gillard and her co-coup plotters as Australia’s Government on 21 August.

AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER KEVIN RUDD DEPOSED BY ALP JUNTA. JULIA GILLARD IS NEW PM WITH ALP POWER BROKERS IN CHARGE OF RUNNING THE GOVERNMENT

In a particularly grubby manner, Australia’s Prime Minster Kevin Rudd, has been deposed as PM by Australian Labor Party (ALP) secretaries, ALP power brokers and other ALP ‘nobodies’ , all in a matter of 24 hours and in a manner that would lead Australian voters to question as to who is really in charge of the Australian Government.
