Gillard's commission for change

After 12 months of fevered leadership speculation, the ground is settling for Julia Gillard. And her Royal Commission into child sex abuse has shown governments can do big things.

Almost every pundit beavering away at almost every news organisation was predicting the end of Julia Gillard and the rebirth of Saint Kevin. An early election was a near certainty. Editorials even demanded such an event.

Week after week, program after program, Richo after Reith after Hewson after Latham said it was only a matter of days.

Many even demanded she quit.
