Drumroll please...!

Look who's being wooed.

"...we miss him. We love him. We want him."

Awww. It brings a tear to the eye.*

But what's really amusing is that after having loudly announced he yearns to have Costello on the front bench (obviously as leader as what else would he do) and publicly grovelled with the above comments, Nick Michin then added that:

calling for Mr Costello to return to the frontbench does not undermine the leadership of Dr Nelson.

Oh no. Obviously not.

"Plainly he is an extraordinarily talented man but we have a [insert implied 'crap' here] leader, he's had a tough week and I don't want to make it any tougher for him."

Oh no. Obviously not.

"I think that what we need to do is rally behind the [not extraordinarily talented] leader we have got rather than speculate about leaders that we might have had once, but sadly *wipes away tear* have not yet had and probably never will." *sobs loudly into handkerchief*

Yes. It's a tough job being leader of the opposition. But it must at least be heartening to have strong and unwavering support from your fellow party members behind you.

...One imagines.

*Nauseating pain will do that you know...
