Bury the hatchet? In WHOM?

Old foes bury the hatchet…

Rod Tiffen, from Sydney University, said that it had taken the two former PMs nearly THREE DECADES to overcome their bad blood [which] ‘shows how deeply personal the antipathy ran’…

[And] while they have appeared together at Labor election campaign launches, they have not spoken [but] ‘They now want to highlight that they are more united than divided’, said Mr Tiffen.

Keating appeared at the launch with Rudd and Gillard, another pair who have had to grapple with personal bitterness in the years since Gillard ‘successfully challenged’ Mr Rudd for the prime ministership in 2010.
