Rise and fall of a leader - CQ Today

When the LNP last lost Government in 2007, the Nationals party was reduced to a party room of just 10 members. A subsequent by-election loss reduced our representation to single digits.

The outlook was dire. There had been a global surge in concern about climate change following the Stern review and a documentary by Al Gore. The Nationals' traditional defence of farming, mining and manufacturing looked out of date for the coming new world order. Anyone remember Rudd's "toolbox of the 21st century" or his "Green new car plan"?
