The government has its back to the wall, and Gillard surely hasn’t long to go as PM. They are the worst government and prime minister in our history respectively. They cannot come back from this, and the only questions remaining are:
- how long before Gillard goes?
- who will replace her?
- how long before the government falls?
- how will they fall? Thomson forced to quit, Wilkie pulls the plug (fancy a former green being the one to kill off the carbon tax) or a coalition landslide in 2013?
In ten months, the carbon dioxide tax will come into effect. Labor may not last this long and Gillard certainly won’t. Could the tax be killed off before its even introduced? Only time will tell.
