Mr Corbett said, "His colleagues sacked [Kevin Rudd] because they judged him to be incapable as Prime Minister."

Kevin Rudd

The failed former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was recently put back in office as a result of a putsch orchestrated by the Fairfax newsmedia's Age newspaper after Prime Minister Julia Gillard tried to make it possible for the voting public to properly hold to account all candidates contesting the forthcoming Federal elections.

Julia Gillard's attempt to enable effective scrutiny of candidates threatened vested interests

Update, 12 July 2013: The Stalking of Julia Gillard by Kerry-Anne Walsh published by Allen and Unwin has already been reprinted 3 times, such is its public reception! Kindle edition (AU$9.99) also available. See also comment of 30 June by Barry Tucker of the Truth in Media Resource Centre.
