It wouldnâ€™t be a leadership under pressure without a Downfall video. Some of this one is a bit off the mark but is funny all the same.
Life is cruel.
Legend has it that the PMO staff â€“ commiserating with their boss last night at The Lodge â€“ even threw him in the pool alongside some hardy souls who braved the chill air. They had a splendid time, with suggestions the Ruddster was going to shuffle back to Queensland or accept the vacant Ambassador to China position being discounted.
Speculation is rife that Rudd will be offered the Foreign Ministry but what seems certain is that he has not given up on being leader again, a prospect that could possibly be equated with that other Julia, Julia Irwin.
UPDATE: The Canberra Times’s well-connected James Massola picked up on our PMX dunking story.
