People all over the country were shocked to see the drama within the labor party unfolding on tv and hear the bad news today morning that Our prime minister has decided to take a back seat for the good of the party.
Was this a necessary step to be taken and will this do anything to prevent for the labor party dip in polls , from what the current polls are telling us , it does not show any difference in where the polls for labor was already heading , which is downwards. Will this calculated move by Julia Gillard and her supporters pay off or will it be the demise of Labor party’s down fall and the oppositions win only time will tell.

Here are some reactions by the public on the Julia Gillard & Kevin Rudd Prime minister Drama
Jack Marx – News.com.au
For what’s happened today is undemocratic. It is typical of what Labor has been doing, all over the country, for years now (…) That Australians voted Kevin Rudd into office means absolutely nothing to the Labor Party. The Labor Party does not care a fig who you voted for, because it is they who are in power. That’s the thinking.
Outgoing prime minister “kevin Rudd”
The Daily Telegraph’s national political editor Malcolm Farr said the challenge for Labor was to “… somehow draw a line between Rudd and Gillard, and not just a distinction based on style”.
“Fat chance,” he wrote. “If Kevin Rudd has made clunky decisions over the past six months, so has Julia Gillard.
Peter Hartcher – Sydney Morning Herald
Labor has just wasted a prime minister, in every sense. The party did exactly what Julia Gillard had been warning supporters against doing for months – it burned through a perfectly electable prime minister in a single term.

Kevin Rudd performed under most difficult times and kept Australians above water. What else could we ask for?Now we all will sink either with Gillard or Tony Abbott.
Paul Colgan – The Punch
It took his political execution for Kevin Rudd to show some authenticity again. His last press conference as Prime Minister was a harrowing affair. By turns there was pride, shame, shock, gratitude, humility, even a touch of the old arrogance, all against the backdrop of the sudden, swift, and merciless betrayal. I’m told some journalists who were present in the Prime Minister’s Courtyard were close to tears.

I am very dissapointed that the Labor party went the same way as the Liberals, they need to look at themselves very hard now that have done this, I agree with Debbie from Alice Springs, what did he have to do walk on bloody water, noone complained when he handed out the cash only the ones who didnt get it, I was proud to have voted for him and Australia really needs to pull their heads in. Who will they blame now Julia or Tony great choices

I am proud of Kevin Rudd as a person and great leader of this great country. I cannot accept an old colleague doing this to him!

As bad as Kevin was, I feel he is a much better represntative for our country than Julia ‘Kath & Kim’ Gillard. The simple fact is though, the party and it’s policies are still the same – changing the figure head really has negligible difference!!

I feel for Keving Rudd. No one deserves to be treated and backstabbed the way he was treated this morning. He just wasn;t up for the job but to have someone like PM Gillard and wayne swan who he knew him since school to backstabb him is not good. With friend like that who need enemies.
Julia Eileen Gillard (born 29 September 1961) is the 27th Prime Minister of Australia. She is the first female prime minister in Australia’s history. …
