The panic plaguing Labor

Rudd's entry into the campaign demonstrates the extent of the anxiety that plagues the entire Labor Party. Until it overcomes this affliction, the party's knee-jerk responses to conflict will persist.

Yesterday Andrew Robb put out a press release calling Kevin Rudd's return "Labor's third panic attack".

I don't know if Rudd's entry into the campaign can accurately be described as a panic attack but Robb's right on the broader point: this is a panicky Labor Party, one inclined to jump at its own shadow.
