John Dauth To London

We can't find Tracy Watkins article on page B5 of the Dominion Post online yet but we do have this article from The Australian of 7 August. What Watkins misses is the obvious. Kevin Rudd is wanting to maximise the return on the expertise that Dauth has picked up in studying a Labour Government on its last legs. There is no better person in the Australian foreign service to go to London.

For the record we think that Dauth has done a great job for Australia here in his two years and it is a shame he can't be here for the election and its aftermath.
