A step back from the concentration of power in the PM’s office is a certain consequence of the leadership change. Julia Gillard might have been a member of the Rudd gang of four but she has enough brains not to create an equivalent kitchen cabinet of her own. Nor will she allow her staff to project themselves as being more important in the scheme of things than those that elevated her to the leadership position. Proper Cabinet meetings where ministers have the opportunity of putting a point of view before decisions are made will surely avoid some of the mistakes that ended up destroying Kevin Rudd.
