IT’S whatever time it was, getting on for six o’clock or so, and the young lady bringing drinks announces that Rudd has quit. Well the reaction amongst those present is universal, and it isn’t an immediate siding with one or other of the case studies in abnormal psychology wishing to lead the nation.
“Election would be better,” said the Lorikeet, whose son had joined us for a drink. He stopped talking about the day at work to read some headlines from his mobile. The Professor raised a toast.
“To an election. Now!”
The members at the adjoining knot of chairs and table hear the call and do not need to be invited. One mutters something about "scum" -- no worse a description than Labor's leaders are flinging at each other -- and they raise their glasses too.
An election. Now. It's the only remedy.
Your venacular is well known Professor. I have had the fork in the breastplate as suggested, all I had was quizzical looks. Teaching is hard to break down. I love your posts and nkeep up the rage against this mob|ReplyDelete
Gillard, Rudd, Crean ...?ReplyDelete
The Newspoll winner this weekend ..... NONE OF THE ABOVE.
While juggling cats, and attempting to herd the ones that fell with their feet, the ALP was seen to perform a spinning double backflip leap over the shark...ReplyDelete
The crowd now waits and watches in morbid amusement, not so much to see how they could possibly manage to stick the landing, but to see what eats the corpse first after it most likely lands on its head and breaks its neck...
The cats, or the shark...
Let it be Crean, and let him do the honourable thing and call an immediate election. In fact, if he can ask for a double dissolution without a compulsory trigger, let him do so.ReplyDelete
On the other hand, the ability to see Rudd lose his shit during his concession speech is something still to hold out for. And if he doesn't win, maybe the baby feminists currently oozing their way into the magical realm that is voting age will desert the ALP in droves when they find that it really is just a bitchy little boys' club that let a girl take the fall.
Crean performed Simon Crean's typical "Rat Act" on Rudd over the weekend - he'd qualify.Delete
Yeah, except the government is hated by the electorate. It is effectively at war with the people so it must avoid an election at all costs. An election for this mob is loss of control, which is what we must therefore hope for. Every last one of these corrupt incompetents, from Windsor to Gillard, will have to be violently separated from their privileges.ReplyDelete
Yep, what a shambles. My prediction, for what it's worth, is that if the erstwhile foreign monster regains the leadership, the whole rotten farce will end.ReplyDelete
Too many laybore pollies have said they can't or won't work with ruff.
We deserve nothing less than an election, now.
I just want these indescribable idiots out of my life.
I notice in his bridge-burning missal that the Ruddster requires 48 hours to hand over his affairs of State. Wow, tough gig that Foreign Affairs portfolio. A whole 48 hours to tidy things up; must have a lot on his plate.ReplyDelete
"...and here are my frequent flyer records, please ensure they are up to f..king date before I step down. Here are my latest expense vouchers, you'll f..king well see to those too..."
This looks like the best since Alien vs Predator. Wait! This is Alien vs Predator!ReplyDelete
Same reaction where I was last night when the news broke. Minus the drinks, sadly, and the word used was rabble.ReplyDelete
Ah, an election. It is to dream.ReplyDelete
Apparently Rudd's worst crime was he risked an Abbott prime ministership in 2010. You know, a lot of Australians are not too horrified by that prospect. They're gonna have to think up something a bit more evil if their want to stoke the outrage...ReplyDelete
I feel a no-confidence motion coming on.ReplyDelete
Go, just go!ReplyDelete
This is going to get very dirty, and that's just the ALP camp..... I think we in the UK will be able to here the explosion.ReplyDelete
"I find the ructions in the ALP interesting in that it exposes the hatreds of close-in politics as clearly as we have ever seen."
Is it coincidental how the ALP's "Soap Opera" Censorship Classification Board's relaeses lined up this week?ReplyDelete
"R" for Rudd - on grounds of Strong Language & Violence.
"G" for Gillard - everything's for General Exhibition (including kiddies) - Ha! Ha!
Get used to elections, people. We are going to be in for a few of them!ReplyDelete
Abbott has to divest the Senate of those watermelons before Parliament will work efficiently!
Let's see we have Juliar or Rudd the egomanic, hmmmm not much choice is there? Yep you are right.ReplyDelete
It’s like having to choose either arsenic or cyanide!Delete
I "m pretty sure Rudds real resignation speech went like this. "That f****ng.....b**ch! She does it to me all the f***ing time. What the F.*ck does she think she is f**ing doing. Cancel my 6 pm appointment with the f***ing Chinese translator. I am so f***king .popular and I am going to show that red headed f*****ng b**ch who's the boss. No-one gets away with f***king stabbing me in the back. F**k you Swan, and you Crean, you were very rude to me and I am going to have a f****king hissy fit cos I was so f****ing loyal and you are not! I am really really f****ng nice now and deserve to be the f***ing Prime MInister again! Iv'e f***ng changed. I am Kevin and I'm here to f**king help"ReplyDelete
Perhaps Rudd should do a deal with Tony? Do a deal to get foreign affairs for support in forming a new government?ReplyDelete
I am worried that it's all a stunt cooked up by Labour spinners to boost voter percentages. Let's face it we've heard bugger all from the Libs, none of Tony Abbott and whenever Jules or Kev spit their nonsense every second sentence "shit-cans" Tony as a potential leader, lots of airplay and no answers from the oppostition stating what a wonderful alternative Tony might be. Think about it. . .ReplyDelete
