“So I just tell all those cowards that are running to the press, they ought to stand up and put their hand up and say look, vote for me for leader, I’m sure most of them would be laughed at.”

The Treasurer Michael Costa defends Morris Iemma from the whispering campaign that has surrounded him in recent weeks. Costa argues that Morris, possibly Australia’s most hated politician in absolute ages judging by the endless anti-Morris missives to the editor, isn’t so bad after all:

“Morris Iemma is the best leader. I mean, we’ve got some problems, there’s no doubt about that, but there is no challenge to Morris Iemma – it’s an absolute nonsense.”
