RUDD MOVES TO KILL OFF THE FACELESS MEN

With an October election looking more likely by the minute, Kevin Rudd plans to emasculate the people who handed him the Prime Ministership.



KEV WANTS TO PLAY PRESIDENTS


"WOULD I WANT TO BE IN THE TRENCHES WITH THAT MAN?"

It was under Kevin Rudd’s instruction that Peter Garrett implemented the ill-conceived pink batts scheme. When Garrett tried to explain an impending disaster, Rudd gave him short shrift and told him to, “Just get on with it”.



AN EMPTY HOUSE FOR AN EMPTY MAN

There is a raft of reasons why Kevin Rudd will lead Labor to a similar defeat as would have Julia Gillard, it’s just that the pro Labor political pundits haven’t thought it through yet.



RUDD GOT WHAT HE WANTED

Rudd wanted SBY to tell him Australia was defenceless against the will of Indonesia and its people smugglers. He wanted to be told our defence forces should not attempt to defend our borders. He got what he wanted and at the cost of a simple rebuff to Abbott.


NELSON MANDELA'S MAGNIFICENT, YET INCOMPLETE, LEGACY

I can never forget Nelson Mandela leaving Victor Verster Prison after seven years’ incarceration on the mainland. He had also endured 20 years on the infamous Robben Island as part of a life sentence. He strode tall, proud and undaunted, waving to a small crowd with his wife, Winnie.


CLARIFICATION: Malcolm in the Middle story


RUDD EVOKES OLD MEMORIES... old memories of Rudd

It’s all flooding back now and I recall why replacing him with Gillard seemed such a good idea at the time. To put it as diplomatically as possible; Rudd is the same old obnoxious wanker!


MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE... of a Green campaign?

Malcolm Fraser was the Malcolm Turnbull of the old Libs but even Turnbull must have smacked his forehead after reading ex-PM Malcolm Fraser was campaigning for the Greens.


WIN, LOSE OR DRAW, BILL WILL KILL KEV

The mass exodus from Labor’s front and back benches indicates the extent of the white-hot hatred for their Kevin, but it’s any port in a storm for Labor. Kev cannot not save the ship but fewer seats will be lost at sea.



KEV BACK IN HIS ELEMENT

The mastermind of our broken borders, one K. Rudd, is not the most diplomatic of diplomats, yet on Thursday he will take Julia’s VIP jet to Indonesia in an attempt fix a problem that is, to him, no more than an electoral liability.


THERE'S A MUSLIM IN THE MINISTRY

Okay, so what! Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are... oops I’d better not be politically incorrect. Anyway there are enough of them (Muslims I mean, not terrorists) here now to warrant Parliamentary representation. No big deal.



RUDD UNAWARE OF A NEST OF WHITE ANTS

The Fairfax pro-Julia juggernaut has already started to leak the more nefarious of Kevin Rudd’s personality weaknesses. And there are plenty yet to be disclosed.
