Nothing in the media at this stage. We will update the thread later.
11.09am: David Speers on Sky News says he has just got a message saying they are still counting inside the caucus room. Could Rudd be demanding a recount?
11.21am: Again from Sky News – the final tally is Gillard 71, Rudd 31.
11.30am: David Speers, “This gives Julia Gillard a firmer hold on the leadership”.
From The Age:
Michelle Grattan says this result is an overwhelming endorsement of Julia Gillard by her party.
It has basically said we are going to stick with what we’ve got and this means it is unlikely Kevin Rudd is going to have any sort of resurrection later on.
We will hear a lot of talk about unity and that will come from both camps. What’s important is how Julia Gillard settles down the government.
