PM Gillard – exposes her paranoia …
It is a sad and sorry state of affairs when our Prime Minister feels the need to cut across her Minister’s responsibilities and give the media exactly what they want – a serious issue turned into a trigger that further ignites the Leadership void …

I swear – someone on the PM’s staff is responsible for measuring her public exposure across all media news feeds every day – if Mr Rudd’s exposure is greater or better – she has to respond – and that is exactly why she made the phone call that will become a bigger issue over the next few days.

What is the PM doing seeking to speak personally with this 14 yo boy – arrested last week in Bali on drug charges?  Todays story update – read here …

Surely – the Foreign Minister has responsibility for this matter and has addressed the media about it over the weekend.  This drew media speculation during the Sunday Political shows where they raised the Leadership challenge that is on in full earnest if Labour Party insider Richardson can be believed.

Gillard’s phone call can only be seen as ‘desperate’ – she has set a precedent – is the PM now to ring all Australian tourists arrested off-shore – where is the line drawn – why is the Foreign Minister not the spokesperson on this matter – all questions she will be asked and will never answer.

Who ever her advisors are on this matter are ‘nansy pansies’ – ‘yea’ sayers looking to keep sweet with the PM.

It is such an obvious grab at media time to counter the profile momentum with Mr Rudd – it proves again her lack of Leadership skill and her need to have paranoid control over the media cycle relating to the Government’s humdrum matters.  This is not policy – but a non-event that has not become a political football …
