Swan stabbed Rudd in back
Former prime minister Kevin Rudd has confirmed Treasurer Wayne Swan stabbed him in the back only a day after sharing a drink with him in his office to congratulate him for defending the new mining tax.
The revelation was made last month in former MP Maxine McKew's book, Tales From the Political Trenches.
Ms McKew wrote that Mr Rudd told her that on the night before Mr Swan decided to "vote for change" and support Julia Gillard in a leadership challenge, he went to Mr Rudd's office to have a drink and thank him for supporting the mining tax.
Mr Rudd said he had no inkling he would not have Mr Swan's support and was shocked by his decision.
The former prime minister on Friday stood by the comments he gave to Ms McKew for her book.
"The quotes there, it's pretty plain," he told ABC radio.
"I wouldn't give her the quote if it wasn't true."
But Mr Rudd said he had since come to terms with his ousting.
"You can sit in the corner and become bitter and twisted or you can pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get on with it," he said.
"I've tried to do the latter and I think I've done it reasonable successfully."
He said while he was happy to champion the concerns of Griffith, his Brisbane electorate, he would still be involved in national and international politics.
Mr Rudd said those who speculated about another leadership challenge every time he commented on issues outside his electorate "needed to go and get a life".
Not Me, I will never defend him for his betrayal of his Friend. Though like Mr Rudd I believe that being bitter about it achieves nothing. I would also happily trade Mr Swans seat for that Of Brisbane.Barry Mackenzie Monday 10 December, 2012 - 1:23 PM

This can't possibly be true, Swannie has denied it, Gillard has denied it,
most of the labor party are denying it and a more truthful lot you would be hard pushed to find NOT!Gayle Friday 9 November, 2012 - 11:52 AM
