Mortal political enemies Gillard and Rudd share an uncomfortable kiss after the passing of the Carbon Tax legislation. A year ago Gillard knifed Rudd to take over the leadership and now Rudd is poised to return the favor!
Meanwhile Joe Hockey , shadow treasurer, says that Labor will have to rethink it's stand on the tax repeal if the Coalition achieves a large majority. Traditionally in Australia oppositions do not oppose legislation for which there is a clear mandate.
A DEFEATED Labor Party would be forced to rethink its support for a carbon tax in the face of a significant hit to its parliamentary numbers, the Coalition declared today, as it again vowed to repeal the scheme in government.
