Having previously spent eight years as president of a local branch of the ALP, I am appalled by Rudd’s constant whiteanting and playing of populist politics. His behaviour strikes me as totally amoral, without empathy, and psychopathic. I believe he will single-handedly bring about the demise of the ALP. Much more so than any faceless men.

He thrived on having spineless federal members who, like my own, will only ever parrot the party rhetoric. She is not only faceless; but totally absent. She spent seven years in my branch and contributed nothing. I am not surprised she has made her first comment in many years, that she will support Rudd.

Right now the only person I would vote for PM would be Malcolm Turnbull. I know… wrong party.
