(Cartoon: Labour Party burnt out pop star trying to remember what he stands for, with coaching from kid rudd)
Election time is coming up in Australia, which normally would not be much of an issue in Indonesia except that the current Prime Minister seems to be a favourite of Indcoup and Treespotter. So I thought I would dedicate a post on the theory that a rotting fish, rots from the head first.
Personally, I have never had much time for John Howard as I consider him as a more than economical with the truth when it suits him and just a little sneaky. Having said that, there is no doubt he is the consummate professional politician in the region bar none.
Time and again, the Australian Labour Party has thrown up challenges to the throne, only to find their chosen challengers, weak kneed bullies (Latham) intellectual ravers (Beasley) and their latest puff balloon of choice Kevin Rudd. Kevin Rudd’s latest claim to glory (besides never ever being able to answer a question with a straight answer) is this latest PR disaster:
“VIETNAM veterans have been offended by Labor leader Kevin Rudd’s request for a “fake” dawn service so he can commemorate Anzac Day live on Channel Seven’s breakfast show from Long Tan in Vietnam.
The plan for an earlier 4.15am service to coincide with the peak 7.15am morning TV ratings period were hatched by Mr Rudd’s office and staff of the Sunrise show several weeks ago.”
Few days hold greater reverence to Australian’s than ANZAC day and for some mealy mouthed spiv like Rudd to suggest the timings held in remembrance of the fallen be changed to suit his own inflated sense of self importance is repulsive in the extreme.
Rudd like the party he represents has demonstrated yet again they have no idea what is important to the average Australian and will self-destruct long before Election Day handing Howard yet another election on a platter…idiots.
To be fair, you cannot expect much from a political party, laced with Union Hacks, taxpayer funded leftist journalists and barely literate, washed up, bubble gum pop stars. You would have to dig long and hard in the Australian Labour Party to find anyone who has actually contributed to the economy of Australia and not spent their whole lives somewhere on the taxpayer teat.
As a twist, my own motives and ethics will be tested in this election. With the Australian Dollar at .80 USD up from .48c back in 2000. A vote for the economic disaster that is the Labour Party could only be good for my wallet but bad for the country...(Ok..Only kidding!! Only a fool, welfare cheats or at the risk of repeating myself, a socialist could vote for the rotting fish that is the Australian Labour Party).
Brace yourself for a few more years of Howard.
