DO YOU THINK THEY WILL REMEMBER THAT RATFUCKER THING?
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
The Libs’ Left has merged with Labor’s Right and now there’s not a Tallyho between them. Make no mistake about it, Julie Bishop will push Cabinet for a Turnbull Government endorsement of Kevin Rudd for UN Secretary General. She needs to be seen to be behind the push.
It is unthinkable that a Liberal Government should even consider recommending Kevin Rudd for anything but a part time toilet cleaner. The UN is a bad enough organisation without adding to its decadence. Just ask Labor’s front bench ... from memory Kev was labelled dysfunctional, a sociopath, a liar, an egomaniac, treacherously devious, offensive and a serial leaker.
And now Labor is encouraging Kev’s endorsement... hmmm how honest of them.
You see Labor only needed the factionless Kevin to win a 2007 election for them, then he was discarded quicker than a second hand condom (above) in the same way as was Tony Abbott after he won the Libs a 2013 record landslide election.
Is there really much difference between the two majors, when they carbon copy each other’s policies on debt and deficit, renewable resources and similar treacherous tactics? And now both look likely to endorse Kevin for a position that is way over his head.
But the stick insect only ever has her own interests at heart, and she has made it known that she is the driving force behind Kev’s endorsement. So if her drive is successful she will have her visiting card gold plated with Turnbull certain to be bullied into increasing foreign aid to the level she wants and a regulated ten per cent of carbon tax receipts going to the UN’s corrupt IPCC.
DFAT is a protected portfolio and the envy of all front benchers. Cutting ribbons, handing out bucket loads of money and sipping cocktails is not likely to cause any embarrassment.
All pretty good for the stick insect, her Mr Wonderful boyfriend and the UN, but a shitty deal for battling Aussie taxpayers.
Anyhow the stick insect will not be successful. Oh she will probably get her way with the endorsement but she should know that China is one of the five permanent Members of the Security Council and unfortunately for Kev the Chinese recall that he referred to them, rather disparagingly as “ratfuckers”.
Now that term is not often used in the diplomatic circles of the UN. And China, like each of the five, has the power of veto over any nomination. Stiff Chedda Kev.
Turnbull needs only one more of his many stupid mistakes (something simple like the Godwin Gretch fiasco) and he might lose his head to his partner in politics in the same way as Kev lost his and in the same way as she chewed off Tony Abbott’s.
This is one insect that no-one should turn their back to.
