Now we have the return of the super-sized ego Kevin 07 who after three years of working covertly for the fall of a Labor PM, leaking to his mates in the press, and constantly undermining an elected government without having the courage to own his actions now playing the worst sort of politics and using the most vulnerable people as his pawns to play a game of dirty chess.
