Losing friends fast

April 15, 2010

Not only is Kevin losing underlings at an alarming rate (staff turnover of 60 per cent apparently), he is fast losing the respect of his political friends. Gary Johns, a minister in the Keating Labor government had this to say in Brumby Stands up to PM on Health:

Thanks goodness for John Brumby, the Labor Premier of Victoria. He alone seems to be standing up to a Prime Minister determined to impose on the nation a health plan that is as hollow as hollow men could make it.

Brumby has been a member of the Victorian parliament for 17 years, was leader of the opposition for almost six years, and treasurer, and was the federal member for Bendigo during the Hawke government and a colleague.

He is not someone to treat as Kevin Rudd would an underling.
