Clearly Kevin Rudd was not happy about having to preside over a sacking from his ministry last week but when he decided that Joel Fitzgibbon just had to go as Defence Minister he decided to do two for the price of one. Also put to the Prime Ministerial sword was the parliamentary secretary for health and ageing Senator Jan McLucas although quite surprisingly her departure was largely overlooked by the media reporting. The words used were that the Queensland Senator, who earned the Rudd displeasure by spending so much of her time in Canberra, had chosen to spend more time in her role as a Queenslander and thus stepped down from her position of power. If you believed that you would believe anything.
