Rudd resigns as foreign minister

Weeks of intense Labor leadership speculation has ended with Kevin Rudd resigning as foreign minister. This morning The Australian reported that Gillard had intended to sack Rudd from his post, but as was the case the last time he was demoted, Kevin realised the inevitable and stood aside ‘voluntarily’. Bolt suggests that Gillard’s failure to defend Rudd’s integrity is an endorsement of the attacks he has faced from Simon Crean and others. It seems she has taken the knife to her former leader yet again. There is no doubt that this development will hurt Labor in the polls.
