The six-year Labor/Green nightmare is finally over. Tony Abbott is the nation’s new Prime Minister.
Abbott gave a brief, dignified victory speech, promising to govern for all Australians, in stark contrast to Labor who only sought to entrench division and disunity. Rudd, on the other hand, rambled on for what seemed like an eternity in his concession speech, as if he himself was the victor – delusional to the last.
Whilst Rudd will not contest the Labor leadership, he will remain in parliament as an ever-present threat of destabilisation.
Labor’s nightmare has only just begun.
UPDATE: James Delingpole – Go, Tony, go!
