MISSING JOHN HOWARD ALREADY:

Labor 'plotting' to ditch Kevin Rudd and make Julia Gillard leader (Simon Kearney, 6/13/10, The Sunday Telegraph)

SENIOR Labor MPs says the leadership is Julia Gillard's for the taking before the election - if she wants it.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's control of the party has entered a treacherous phase, with Cabinet ministers and backbenchers canvassing the idea of changing leaders before this year's federal election.

As Ms Gillard was forced yesterday to publicly deny she wanted the top job, Labor MPs described Mr Rudd as a "leader under fire" and said his prime ministership was "terminal".
