Gillard third carbon price victim, is Abbott next?

Julia Gillard made a fatal mistake - she didn't take a principled stand on the carbon price from the beginning. It cost her the trust of the electorate and similar traps await Tony Abbott.

Julia Gillard made a fatal mistake very early on that ultimately cost her the leadership – she didn’t have the guts to take a principled stand on pricing carbon from the start. It was only when the politics forced it upon her via the Greens and Independents, that she told us it was a reform in the great tradition of the Hawke-Keating governments. That it was a reform that shouldn’t be deferred any longer.
