But was this the biggest news of the day? No. Of course not.
Fact and celebration were trumped by hypothesising, guess work and assumption.
The biggest news story and plastered all over today's newspapers were not the fact that we
have a Carbon Tax.
No, the biggest news story was the fact that Kevin Rudd walked up to Julia Gillard to congratulate/share in the triumph of passing legislation that has been years in the making.
Julia Gillard's double victory - passing her carbon tax legislation and a kiss from Kevin Rudd - The Australian
Global warming to political warming: Rudd's 'Judas kiss' - The Newcastle Herald.
It's such a shame. We're pioneers, one of the first countries to do this. We're taking a punt & giving it a go but all the gloss has gone. The celebration and limelight of what should be a defining time for us is overshadowed by two colleagues getting along.
Yes, note worthy because it is Gillard & Rudd, however, it should not be front page news. Shame to all mentioned above.
