Roxon attacks Rudd over health reform
Roxon warning: Rudd is not the 'messiah'
"We need to get out of this idea that Kevin is a messiah who will deliver an election back to us. That is just, I think, fanciful," she told ABC TV.
It wouldn't be good for the country to have Mr Rudd as prime minister again, Ms Roxon said.
"He was very difficult to work with. There were a lot of challenges," she said, referring to Mr Rudd's time in the top job and his rolling by Ms Gillard 20 months ago.
"People might say that we were too polite ultimately about the way we did it. We didn't air all our dirty linen. I don't really want to air it now, but the truth is that decision was made for very strongly-held reasons that are just as important now.
"Government has to be able to function properly so we can deliver for the community."
This link is also fun - where Ms Roxon claims Rudd wanted to rush to a referendum on the Federal Takeover of the Health System.
For the future - we really need it to be totally different to what has happened in the past in my view!
It also seems pretty unlikely we will see the outcome of the PCEHR enquiry on Wednesday. At least 1/2 of the Committee will have other things on their minds for a while.
