Labor needs its implosion

Given Labor's factionalism, lack of core values and reluctance for public debate, ripping the party apart might just be the best thing for it.

And so, with Kevin Rudd's formal decision to challenge for Labor Party leadership, each side continues and deepens its tactics. The challenger, returning to Australia like an exiled prince, calls for a people's revolt to restore him to the throne taken from him by sinister court plotters. The incumbent, with vast resources at its disposal, continues blasting away at him with everything it's got. Having failed to stop him yet with massed artillery fire, the Gillard camp's answer has been to order up more guns.
