Kevin Rudd fails debate


With the Australian election coming up in a little over a month, it is fitting to give the issue some attention.  Prime Minister Redux Rudd and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott had the first of three debates and were both a little uninspiring.

Of course, it would beggar belief that Australians would re-elect the Australian Labor Party again.  There is little doubt that the this particular Australian Labor Party will go done is history as the worst and most unprincipled mob of time servers since World War 2 bar none. You would think after the shenanigans of the NSW Labor Party and an election coming up that the Deputy Prime Minister would have more commonsense than to be snapped having a beer with a known fraudster?  Worse the idiot DPM then tried to sell the story that it was an accidental meeting in a pub another lie that came unstuck when it was exposed that both the DPM were seen sauntering up to the pub together.  The unmitigated lies that flow incessantly from this bunch of ratbags is simply astounding.

What is most sad is the fall in grace, integrity and dignity of Australian Labor Party by Australian Finance Minister Penny Wong.  Penny Wong is the first Asian-born member of an Australian cabinet and also the first openly lesbian member of the Australian cabinet. On 27 June 2013 she became the first person of Asian descent to assume the role of Leader of the Government in the Senate.  Articulate and extremely clever she should (and did) represent everything that is good about an open, tolerant forward thinking Australia.  Unfortunately, she has displayed a complete lack of bottle and has allowed the unprincipled around her to drag her to their level.  It is obvious that she knows what she is parroting is manifestly false but in a sad display continues to do so.  Oh Penny…what could have been….

Meanwhile Prime Minister Rudd continues the abhorrent and anti-democratic practice of forcing out local members who actually live in area they represent to allow party hacks and recycled no hopers to gain safe seats the tax-payer gravy chain.
