Bugger Off Beattie & Where is Kevin Rudd?

Clare Mildren is a mother, a country woman, a primary producer, and she is also vehemently opposed to forced local government amalgamation. Clare Mildren is also a councilor on Eidsvold Shire Council, and after the Red Friday Rally in Gayndah, there is no doubt about her opinion of the Beattie Government's Local Government Reform Process. In fact the sentiment regarding the Beattie Government's position was quite clear. What is less clear, is Kevin Rudd's position on Local Government Reform in Queensland. It is clear that Rudd is not in favour of amalgamation, this has been on the public record more than once. However has he been able to gain any traction on this matter?

There is no doubt that for Mr Rudd to win office he must pick up seats in Queensland. However if amalgamation continues as planned it is difficult to imagine those crucial seats will come his way.
