Why Can’t Our PM Be More Like Kevin?

Kevin Rudd(Daily Mail) – IT WAS A RESPONSE that some voters might secretly wish our own Prime Minister employ against MPs over their allowances.

Feisty Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has refused to apologise after letting go with a hail of verbal abuse alleged to have been peppered with frequent variants of the f-word.

Mr Rudd admitted unleashing the tirade against a group of Labor MPs, which included three women, in his parliamentary office two weeks ago, according to national newspaper The Australian.

They were given the dressing down after apparently showing displeasure about his move to cut their printing allowances.

According to one report, the Prime Minister ‘exploded’ allegedly saying, ‘I don’t care what you f*****s think.’

He then directed his fury at one of the eight who was apparently told: ‘You can get f****d;’ and: ‘Don’t you f*****g understand?’

Speaking in New York Mr Rudd said: ‘I think it’s fair to say that in the consistent tradition of the Australian Labor Party, we’re given to robust conversations.

‘I made my point of view absolutely clear, and that is that these entitlements needed to be cut back — and I make no apology for either the content of my conversation, or the robustness with which I expressed my views.’
