So now the Prime Minister has backed away from his fulsome support of Morris Iemma's daft idea to privatise NSW power supplies.
Rudders, you should never have backed this nag in the first place.
It was wrong to open your mouth (for the sake of a media moment) and put this state's essential services further at risk by supporting privatisation.
Trying to straddle the electric fence now, by telling Iemma he should 'negotiate' with the unions, is nothing but show pony prance.
Mate - it's time you decided if you are going to be a Labor prime minister in the finest tradition or if you are going to be a closet Liberal with a well-to-do wife.
Just to jog your memory a bit. The electorate voted for a Labor man.
