Under Kevin Rudd, the Labor government achieved a great deal and also made some large failures. In the process, a previously hugely popular prime minister became widely unpopular. He was too wedded to the 24-hr news cycle. He micro-managed everything, was often angry, was hideously discourteous to those advising him, expected long nights of work on short deadlines with no notice and mismanaged the results. He disrespected the processes of democratic Cabinet government. I had high hopes for him and was disappointed. He achieved much and failed much. If only had had allowed himself to sleep more.
