Snap poll: Alice prefers Rudd n From Page 1 Belinda Kelly: Kevin Rudd. He can do a better job. He is a great leader and he is peoplecentred. Hayley Davis: Kevin Rudd. He is a great leader. I am not a fan of Julia. Audrey Atkinson: Kevin Rudd. I just cant stand Julia. I think she only got in there because she is a woman. Kel Davies: Kevin Rudd. How would anybody go for Julia? She is a liar, she lied to the public and her own people. That is why I call her due liar instead of Julia. Olang Nending: Kevin Rudd. He demonstrated great leadership skills when he was Prime Minister. He has got the style. I give him my vote. Elisabeth Harrison: Kevin Rudd. He knows what Australians need. He has been there before and, given his role as Foreign Minister, he represents us well and besides, Julia has n o t d o n e e n o u g h . H e r backstabbing was not good. Phillip Andrews: Kevin Rudd. He talks a lot of sense and he has done well in the past. Yeah, he is a good bloke. Zannite Booth: Julia Gillard. I think she is really good and she is female. Misericordia Nicholas: Kevin Rudd. It would be good to give him a try again. He seems genuine. Raymond Kells: Kevin Rudd. He seems a lot more honest. Jason Strathearn: Kevin Rudd. He has got attitude and he makes them work. I like his firmness. Janet Brown: Stephen Smith. I would let the public decide. My choice is because he is not playing the game. Garden graveyard furore as flowers are removed Erin Jones GRAVESIDE flowers have been found dumped in the bin at the Alice Springs Garden Cemetery. An upset resident, who wished not to be named, visited a family members gravesite on the weekend and was shocked to see a bin full of artificial flowers. Alice Springs Town Council spokeswoman Claire Ashard said the works manager would investigate. The resident said: Flowers that we had put there (on a grave), not that long ago, werent there. We checked the bins and they were full of them. I have other family members out there so I checked their graves and it was the same thing. She said the artificial flowers had been on the grave for about three months. She said: Why do you think people buy fake flowers? Its so they can sit on the grave and they last. It needs to be brought to council attention. Obviously they are doing a clean-up, but its wrong. Snowdon votes against the grain with Gillard Erin Jones F E D E R A L m e m b e r f o r Lingiari Warren Snowdon has sided with Julia Gillard ahead of Mondays federal ALP leadership ballot. The Prime Minister called for the ballot yesterday morning to end ongoing rumours that Kevin Rudd was preparing for a leadership spill. Ms Gillard said if she was unsuccessful in winning the majority of the votes she would retire to the back bench and has challenged Mr Rudd to do the same. Ahead of Mondays vote, Mr Snowdon told the Centralian Advocate: It is important that this matter is resolved and for Prime Minister Gillard and the government to be able to get on with the job of delivering better health care and education, and r o l l i n g o u t h i g h - s p e e d broadband, as well as the important work in addressing chronic disadvantage among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. The government will continue its policies to ensure Australians receive a fair share of this nations resources wealth and that we put a price on carbon pollution. The last week has proved to be an unwanted distraction from the work of government. When the matter is resolved in a few days time I look forward to working, once again, with Prime Minister Gillard. I am confident the Prime Minister will be successful in Mondays ballot. Northern Territory Labor Senator Trish Crossin spoke to the Prime Minister last night and will take on board views of her constituents before she makes a decision this weekend. She said: I do not intend to make my decision public. Caucus ballots are secret. Matters discussed in Caucus are private and should remain that way to ensure open discussion on how best to improve the lives of all Australians.
