Twelve months ago no one was predicting Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott would lead their respective parties into a Federal election. Now they are involved in the political fight of their lives. Both have moved to re-invent themselves, ditching policies they once endorsed. Four Corners looks at the election battle so far. Reporter Marian Wilkinson talks extensively to both leaders. She looks at the promises, the policies and the back-flips and asks: are these leaders really seeking to lead, or are they simply telling voters what they believe they want to hear?
Q and A gives Opposition Leader Tony Abbot a chance to answer your questions.
"We can beat anyone, as long as we do whatever it takes." - Essendon Football Club Advertisement As muscular sporting slogans go, it's a beauty. But for Essendon Football Club, it's become memorable for all the wrong reasons, symbolising the attitude that brought the Club undone. It was their motto as they prepared for the 2013 AFL season, just as the story of the Club's supplements program broke open, kicking off the biggest sports drug scandal in Australian history. Three years on, despite numerous reviews, investigations and court hearings, there are still questions the club has not answered. To this day, the players still don't know exactly what they were given. "If I don't get this information and I don't get the answers to the questions I'm asking, it's never going to go away." - Hal Hunter, Former Essendon Football Club Player This week Four Corners takes you inside one former Essendon player's battle to find out just what was in the supplements he was directed to take. "They're not even willing to tell him what (the supplement) is, they're not even willing to tell him that they don't know." - Lawyer As a rookie with the club, Hal Hunter joined the other more senior players in the supplements program. He gives an eye witness account of what it was like to be part of the regime and what went on once the scandal broke. "Now (they're) trying to make him pay for the privilege of finding out." - Lawyer He describes how the Club has stonewalled his attempts to obtain his medical records prompting him to take action in court, the first Essendon player to do so. Hal Hunter's case gives an insight into the oversight of the club and its approach to the duty of care it owed all its players. "I don't understand how an employer can treat an employee in that way." - Player Agent

The other Rudd. Young, gifted and radical; he's running against Julia Gillard in her own seat. "I think it would be a crime not to voice my opinions but I certainly do think about the fact that it might make my father or Uncle Kevin or my brothers feel uncomfortable about it." - Van Rudd Julia Gillard's election campaign has been dogged from the outset by the Rudd factor. There's been no escape even in her own Victorian seat of Lalor where Kevin Rudd's nephew is one of her opponents. Van Rudd is an artist and he's running in the PM's seat as an independent backed by the new but tiny Socialist Revolutionary Party. It further demonstrates the complex heritage of the extended Rudd family, some of who are speaking publicly for the first time, to show support for the young candidate. Now Van Rudd tells his story.
