So I guess it was coming -- and expected -- that sooner or later, Kevin Rudd would backdown after all of his diatribe about taking action on climate change.
His lucky break seems to have come in the form of an "economic crisis."
The quote of the moment (and I'll remind you, this is our prime minister... prime, minister), "This is big stuff for the nation. It's big stuff and I wish it was easier to do this - it ain't, it's really hard."
"It's really hard." What is this muppet talking about? How to get a cake to stand after baking? How to keep your bonsai from dying?
"It ain't"?!? I'm surprised he doesn't just speak TXT speak! Here's a tip Kruddy, it's "it isn't", or "it is not," you fucking bogan.
Though not new for a politician from any side of the fence to say something fuckstick-like and then have it embarassingly thrown in their face, I will quote him from either late last year, or earlier this year when he was still riding high from his idiotic Kyoto stunt -- "To delay any longer would be reckless and irresponsible for our economy and for our environment."
He also claims that this is "the worst recession in three quarters of a century." I dunno Kev... I'm thinking "it ain't," having personally lived through, and being personally affected by another one of your Labor party clowns' recessions; remember, that one we "had to have"? I do recall that being a whole lot worse than this one, something that I continue to believe is only softened by eight years of decent financial management by the previous government.
And boy oh boy he's not scared of the R word now that he'd admitted it either, is he?
The bad taste in my mouth that was a precursor to todays gold was the announcement of his third (I think) round of "stimulus package", where the government is yet again borrowing money on behalf of all taxpayers to give quick-fix monetary relief to the public (a vast majority, I dare say, whom have shit-all competency in managing their own money, are over-committed just to get that big house, and are swimming in debt). What are economists now predicting? Australia will, for the first time in eight years or more, lose its triple A credit rating.
So, we borrow more money to con the public in a vain attempt to prop up something that cannot be propped up, we damage our financial standing globally, and people like myself who would rather give the stimulus back have to suffer in years to come when Australia's credit costs more than it should.
Thanks Kev, love what you've done so far.
