I've had plenty of jobs where I didn't get along well with my boss. It becomes my responsibility to do my job to the best of my ability, and earn their support and trust. Above all, I've always had clients to deliver to. Regardless of my relationship with my boss, I had to do my best to deliver to my clients.
Occasionally, I've felt like you that I didn't have the support of my boss, and it wasn't going to change. So, I left and found another job. That's your choice, Kevin.
More importantly, though, you have let us - your clients - down. You are a very good Foreign Minister, and you've thrown in the towel. You were not a good Prime Minister, and even if you win the spill, you will be leaving Australia with a weakened government.
Kevin, you have disappointed me. I thought you had changed, I thought you had gained a backbone, I thought you had gained some maturity. I was wrong. You are none of those things. Peter Costello was a great Treasurer who wanted the top job, and never got it from John Howard. You could have been remembered as a great Foreign Minister.
Now, you will just be remembered as a crybaby.
