Umm... Rudd hasn't been in Parliament for about 5 years now.

Are you feeling OK, mate?

the first and foremost quality of a PM should be to put their nation first. Trudea is turning Canada into a putried mess with laws preventing free speach except for hezbollah supporters, Merkel puts illegals before young German girls and Turnbull puts the UN before Australia. Yeah Trump looks better every minute. Shorten politizes the abuse of young INdigeneous kids for his own purpose. Yep Australia really lacks a man of character. The closest they had for a long time was Abbott however the regressives at the abc/fairfax/turnbull ensured he was backstabbed.

2. Ability to inspire
3. Ability to listen to and work with people having different opinions including subordinates
4. Ability to delegate
5. Scientific literacy
6. Knowledge of the humanities and history
7. Scepticism toward all religions and ideologies coupled with an understanding of why people have those beliefs

In my view Foxy a leader should have had his her hands dirty, as the best supermarket managers are usually those who started as a trolley pusher and worked their way up.

I have a saying that goes, "easy to say when you're on $300K".

What it essentially means is that when on $300K, very little in the way of living expenses bothers you, because let's face it, if power, fuel, even water charges increase, at worst, it would cut into your spending money.

So the main problem we have now is that most politicians have not cut their teeth on the ground so as to say, whereas back in the Joe days for example, most politicians were farmers or workers who wanted to make a difference, where as now few ever really do a hard days work on the ground, so have no real idea of the daily issues faced by the Joe average they claim to be working for.

So to me we need leaders who have come from life experience backgrounds, not the bunch of incompetents who most of would not know the cost of basics like milk and bread.
