Paterson MP, Bob Baldwin says despite a change of leader nothing has changed with the Federal government.

Julia Gillard has followed through with her promise to retire from politics after losing last night’s leadership ballot to former Labor leader Kevin Rudd.

Bob Baldwin says it doesn’t matter who the leader is because the policy direction of the government will remain the same describing it will be a case of the

“same horse, different jockey.”

There’s now speculation a motion of no confidence could be put before the parliament today which, if passed, could pave the way for an early election.

Baldwin remains silent amid speculation of a motion of no confidence in the Federal Government and he won’t comment on the likelihood of a push to force an early election.
