I watched that interview with disbelief how could he not know what the leader of his own party was saying - has he no phone, email or internet? what a prat to expose himself by stumbling through an interview like that - he should have just said no comment like all the others.

Loyal? In Australia he is roundly recognised as a game playing ..... with only an eye on the PM's chair himself.
He was deeply involved in the disgusting coup that helped overthrown the much loved PM Kevin Rudd and was so weak that he burrowed down and didnt say boo during the recent leadership spill.
Sky News Oz labelled this and him, spin politics gone wrong. That the ALP is so weak and reliant on talking points that they are paralysed.
