HOW COULD WE HAVE BEEN SO WRONG ABOUT KEV?
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.
Fancy the ABC’s Sarah Ferguson being able to sanitise Kev to look almost economically responsible and statesman like. You have to hand it to her, bloody marvellous. And in the end it just shows that you should never judge a book by its cover.
A revered leader called Kev who saw the GFC coming before anyone else did and flew into action across the world stage advising G7 nations in time for them to take appropriate measures, like distributing free fluffy pink batts, thereby ensuring the planet of a soft landing.
Oh Kevin, I’m so sorry, I have tears in my eyes...
I would never have realised the extent of your magnificence if it hadn’t been for our ABC.
And when that discarded old Lefty and Keynesian Secretary of the Treasury, Ken Henry said that Kevin was, “a smarter man than me”, I suddenly realised that I, anyone who knew him, all of his Party and most of Australia had been wrong about Kev all these years.... he wasn’t a psychotic, sociopathic, Narcissistic, selfie-addicted, crooked little obnoxious, forelock-tugging, Public Servant wanker after all.
The “Killing Season” was certainly an eye opener for me, because I thought we had escaped the impact of the GFC as our major banks (despite Kev supplying them with a Government guarantee) were never exposed to the sub-prime rate scam anyway.
I mean our iron ore price was continuing to rocket north and our main customer China hadn’t felt a thing and continued with its double digit growth rates... and we had a healthy Costello surplus in the bank of twenty odd billion dollars. Just shows you how wrong you can be, eh?
Silly me, here I was thinking Kev was in the middle of a menopausal crisis handing out $900 in cash to everyone with a tax file number and building thousands of million-dollar school halls for the bargain price of $10 million each and making the planet cooler with free pink batts.
And let’s not forget his master stroke boats’ policy... the one that offloaded another unwanted $14 billion. The bloke was actually a genius and no-one realised!
Blimey, if our ABC’s Sarah Ferguson can skilfully show us just how terribly wrong we all were about Kev, imagine what she’ll be able to do with Julia!
