Punch And Judy The Double Disillusion Election Of 2010
Mungo covers the closest election in Australian history …
In early 2010, there were few signs that the coming election would be so hotly contested. Tony Abbott had just become the third Opposition leader in as many years, and a politically buoyant Kevin Rudd seemed a shoe-in for a second term.
Then came the dramatic eleventh-hour leadership change that installed Julia Gillard as prime minister – Abbott’s old sparring partner and the first woman ever to lead the nation.
The ensuing campaign saw both leaders racing from the malls to the mines in a desperate attempt to win over the swingers and woo an increasingly sceptical electorate. The result was a hung parliament, the first minority government since World War II, and a new phase in Australian democracy.
This is a pacy, perceptive account of the 2010 election year and its remarkable outcome by one of Australia’s most entertaining writers.
