I usually keep remote from politics because, of all the public issues, politics is the one of the most remote from commonsense and demonstrative of almost complete lack of public memory.
Generalizations but easily supported by reality.
Since when have election promises and bribes been of sufficient significance to be a sensible basis for decisions on voting?
This post criticising Rudd is full on but seems to be accurate.
Nor is Abbot without shortcomings, I have not forgotten or forgiven him for his part in illegally and immorally railroading Pauline Hansen. Pity we are without a really genuinely capable and competent leader.
So no bias here, just a short comment on what is currently wasting the country’s money and people’s time!
UPDATE: Rudd is branded an “elitist grub who thinks he is superior to all” by someone who had the misfortune to have to work with him, whereas Abbott is a “gentleman with a capital G”. Following the debate last night, the make-up artist who worked on both Rudd and Abbott wrote on her Facebook page:
“One of them was absolutely lovely, engaged in genuine conversation with me, acknowledge that I had a job to do and was very appreciative. The other did the exact opposite! Oh boy, I have ever had anyone treat me so badly whilst trying to do my job. Political opinions aside… from one human being to another… Mr Abbott, you win hands down.”
Just confirms the fact (if such confirmation were needed) that Rudd is a pompous, arrogant, sociopathic bully, disconnected with real people to the point of autism. [via Bolt]
