Australian judges have lashed out at Prime Minister Julia Gillard, saying it was irresponsible of her to criticise the High Court over the Malaysian asylum seeker decision.
The backlash comes one day after Ms Gillard was forced to dismiss speculation of a leadership plot against her in the wake of her scathing attack on the court's ruling.
Ms Gillard told the ABC's Madonna King yesterday: "I'm not going anywhere", after earlier blaming the court for missing an opportunity to combat people smuggling in the region.
"I'm the best person to do this job. And I'll continue to do it. And what this job is about is leading the nation to a better future," she said.
