Kevin begins where he left off

Kevin Rudd’s literal return to the site of his 2010 farewell speech brings the campaign focus squarely on himself rather than his party. It’s the necessary opposite to Tony Abbott’s approach.

It was freezing in the Prime Minister’s courtyard at Parliament House. But there was no way that Kevin Rudd was going to launch his election 2013 campaign anywhere else.

It was in this courtyard, after Julia Gillard deposed him, that he gave his emotion-charged news conference on June 24, 2010 (in which, to his chagrin, he “blubbered”). He hasn’t appeared there since he regained the leadership.
