The King sits at the summit

Now to paint a picture where more Labor politicians are slain than on any other modern political battlefield. Let us ponder the cost of leadership change - vale Gillard, Crean, Combet, Emerson, Garret and Smith. The list lengthens as ministers resign and others languish on the backbenches. Undaunted, Prime Minister Rudd sets out to win the election by overturning or reforming Gillard government policies, appointing ministers of his choosing, and announcing an election date to his advantage.
