Kevin Rudd mars our nation's image : Comments

By John Roskam, published 30/3/2009

Just recently the 'Financial Times' (London) listed the 50 people who'll shape the future of capitalism. Kevin Rudd wasn't on the list.

In other news "dog bites man".
I would come as no surprise to anyone that this author can not bring himself to say anything good about a leftist Government. It's is also no surprise that he doesn't present any realist alternative ideas either. It is very easy to pick holes in someone elseís plans, much harder to come up with one of your own, and even harder to get yourself into a position to actually execute your plan. While the author has made some attempt at the fist one, he has failed at the second and not even tried the third.

The only list Kevin Rudd should be on is "Wanted Dead or Alive."

Emperor Lu Kewan is fast becoming an embarrassment to Australia. At home we have his substantial and well implemented policies that would be an example to the rest of the developed world.

We have Er; let me see now, Ah! Yes, we have Petrol Watch, Grocery Watch, the Inflation Genie, Say Sorry, Sign Kyoto, bringing Fruit Pickers from Polynesia, then reducing skilled labor immigration, pink bats, computers for schools even if states canít install or support them, education revolution run by the National Union of Teachers, infrastructure programs that canít be implemented, not even started, bagging out overpaid executives (but excluding Mrs. Rudd), bringing home the troops, the ETS (after we signed Kyoto Doh!) and IR reform by stealth. Can anyone please tell me of ANY major policy development and implementation? Many of my overseas friends want to know what our Emperor has actually done to make him such a superstar. I canít answer them.

Whilst The Emperor only represents loose change in the international arena, he is now chasing enhanced status in international politics, the IMF, UN and NATO. It seems only yesterday that little Jonny was being criticized for being up the butt of George W. Bush. The Emperors hypocrisy is breathtaking. His only measureable achievement seems to be that he has managed to get up more butts in less time than little Jonny.

How much more of this tokenistic and ideological rhetoric can we take?

A more appropriate list would be the Not Wanted Dead or Alive List.

And I just loved the obsequious manner he cheered on Obama's bailout of all those evil neolib fundmanagers in Wall Street. Is he going to now pen a philosophical article on the merits of survival of capitalism and the dangers of Democratic Socialism and return to his Economic Conservative status?

Who knows? ... because he doesn't ... and nor do his obsequious media butt buddies in Australia.
