    Default Lampe Sees Light

    Julia Gillard's closest adviser, Amanda Lampe, is doing a NSW style runner. Perhaps she sees the writing on the wall for her boss.

    From the ABC.


    Two reasons for her flight are proferred by the ABC. I do not know which one is the more believable.

    The ABC understands Ms Lampe's partner has recently had twins.

    Amanda Lampe has resigned and will leave her position at the end of March to be replaced by Julia Gillard's former chief of staff, Ben Hubbard.

    Ms Lampe's performance during last year's federal election campaign is understood to have been criticised by some Labor figures who believed Ms Gillard received poor advice.

    But Leader of the House Anthony Albanese has denied the claims.

    "Certainly not. I think there's been some chatter in the media as there always is, particularly over the Christmas season," he said.

    Mr Albanese says Ms Lampe has chosen to move on from what is a high-pressure job.

    "Amanda Lampe is an experienced staffer. She's been a senior staffer here in Canberra to Julia Gillard, but also I worked with Amanda many years ago in Bob Carr's office when he was premier of New South Wales," he said.

    "She is widely respected across the party, in the caucus, and I think amongst her fellow staffers.

    "She'll be a big loss, but people wish her well."
    So the circus continues.

    I'm sure she was pushed.
    There has been much rumbling of dissatisfaction in Labor ranks about her for a while now.
    Probably that means she was sensible and bright enough to disagree with where they were going.
    Good luck to her.
