1st Australian PM – Rudd and Gillard backstabbing coup farce – who are we voting for??

There I was updating my travel log of the seven-week-long-book-tour (don’t worry it’s coming soon, really!) and we change PMs… over night.

When is a change in Australian Prime Minister, no change at all?

When the debacle that is the  ALP’s decision making process overturns the public’s decision of Kevin Rudd as Prime Minister. That’s when!

Don’t get me wrong, Kevin, or the people behind Kevin, really stuffed up on a number of topics… but my favourite sound bites last night (23rd July, 2010) and this morning really hit home how this has nothing to do with looking after the interests of the Australian people.

Here is what I mean.

So let’s recap….

We lose a Prime Minister because the ALP feel the public has no confidence in him in relation to certain issues; i.e. dragging the chain on emissions trading, the mining super-tax and our mounting debt.

So in the ALP’s wisdom, we receive a new PM who is to stand for something different, something better, BUT in the sentiments of her party members, won’t change anything in relation to policy…
Yeah, read that sentence again, it’s worth the laugh! We are getting a change in PM who won’t make any changes…. Riiiight – try explaining THAT gem of logic to your kids!

It gets better, because the smug (did you see his grin as he walked beside the new PM?) Mr Swan is now the Deputy PM!
This is the treasurer, arguably the architect behind putting Australia’s budget 100+ BILLION in the red (that’s $100 000 000 000) after inheriting a budget that was in the BLACK before he got his hands on OUR purse strings.

All I can say is thank goodness the ALP were thinking of the country – I feel soooo relieved now, don’t you?

The most annoying part? We finally have a woman PM, which should be a step forward because I’ve always felt that we need a greater female representation to balance out politics so it truly represents the population… A shame that instead of thunderous celebrations, there is the stale pop of back room flatulence (the politest way I can think of describing this back stabbing garbage).
