iTWire was told Thursday morning by a highly placed source in Canberra that the spill was on “within 48 hours”. That same source said that if the leadership of the ALP changes, then the new leader (presumably one Kevin Rudd) will call an election immediately.
Well the leadesrhip didn't change, and there will be no immediate election. Just the continued unedifying sight of the Labor Party tearing itself apart.
iTWire is not a political newsletter, and you can read more than you need to know elsewhere. But we do follow the IT and communications industries closely, and any change of leadership would have important consequences.
iTWire will follow all developments closely and ensure that consequences for the NBN and other aspects of government technology policy are fully covered and analysed.
Watch this space, as they say.
