Not the Labor party's fault, Rudd should ber made to pay, the Labor Party will be glad to see the arse end of this idiot

Maybe he did listen to the people who are saying he ****ed it up for Labor, not one single person did as much damage as he did. Some will argue that Gillard did, BUT if Rudd did his job to start with she wouldn't have moved on him.

Good riddance.

I'd be happy with that too Trev... the only legit out for a pollie who takes on a contract to serve the people should they be elected is if they leave us in a box... any other out should be covered by them/their party... perhaps that will make the parties more accountable too?

I agree with either the party or the individual having to pay for the by-election in circumstances such as this.

Just a question from a bystander. Because Rudd went to parliament for one day this new term, and not retired at the last election, does he enjoy a fatter pension as he served in this new term?

Works for both sides. Costello did exactly the same thing.
The writing was on the wall for the Howard government and he hung around for the election, then quit when they lost.
If he was going to quit if they lost. He should have went beforehand.

Bit hard for Rudd as he was the leader and current PM.

Wouldn't matter anyway. If he quit you'd be all whinging he was leaving a sinking ship.

Trev you whinge about Rudd but the truth of the matter is, if clowns like Garrett did their ****ing job he wouldn't have had to step in and take over. You're blaming him for the incompetence of ****sticks like Garrett.

Gillard, Shorten, Crean take your pick. They did more harm to Labor with the knife wielding than Rudd ever did.
Take one look at the 2010 election. Labor were nearly a one term government because of the in-fighting and poor policy implementation. The Cabinet Ministers deserve a lot of the blame as well.

Blaming Rudd for the Labor party woes is the same head in the sand attitude that has got them to where they are today.
Up until the pre-selection reforms the everyday member of the Labor party had absolutely no say. So it was all left up to union hacks to look after each others interest. The working mans party is now the union organisers/industrial relations solicitors stepping stone into public office and benefits most of us would only dream about.

The Liberals haven't been in touch with everyday Australians for decades and the Labor party is next to irrelevant to the average Australian worker. If both these parties want to govern for all Australians they need to stop having secret meetings with fat slag mining magnates and start looking after all parts of the economy.
They need to start putting Australian jobs first and stop selling us out.

Gina the Hutt, true leader of the Liberal party, dictates the party line.

Sorry mate, he was the CEO, he has to take responsibility, his individualism is what got him in the ****, not being a team player and all that, Latham fell into the same trap within the ALP.

Rudd was the architect of the downfall, Labor is a product of his doing

I think this what you were looking for 27

So Trev that would mean Gillard also stuffed it up as she was the CEO. They dumped Rudd kept the same clowns and nothing changed.
Still the same mistakes but with another leader. Sort of tells you something there. The CEO is only as good as the people working for him

Gillard was on a hiding to nothing. Before Rudd came back as PM all the polling was suggesting that Labor would lose another 25 seats.
Rudd has at least kept Labor in a position that it can recover from and the way Sloppy Joe and Arse kiss Abbott are going, that maybe sooner rather than later

I will say it again, if Rudd hadn't ****ed up then Gillard would have had no need to roll him, so he is to blame for the lot

Just read this:
quote:
Mr Rudd leaves parliament on Thursday with many of his political opponents barely uttering a bad word about him.

Even the woman he deposed as Labor leader and prime minister in June wished him well in retirement.

"Best wishes to Kevin, Therese & their family as they embark on the next stage of their lives," Julia Gillard tweeted.

But another former Labor leader was not nearly as kind.

Mark Latham said "quite truthfully, he was a bastard."

"He was such a vicious, egotistic, ambitious person ... he destabilised every leader under whom he served," he told Fairfax Radio in Sydney.

Mr Rudd had "notoriously sabotaged" Labor's 2010 election campaign with vengeful leaks.


and from the same article
quote:
Independent Senator Nick Xenophon predicted Mr Rudd would always remain in the spotlight.

"It's all about Kevin, it always has been, and it always will be," he said.

Did Rudd do everything wrong? or did he just go against the back room boys?

I hear that ol' Rupert had a spat about Rudd calling it quits. His papers have nothing to write about anymore.

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

lol... i did find it funny to hear that Latham had called Rudd a "vicious, egotistic, ambitious person" and "quite truthfully, he was a bastard."...

or was Latham just looking in the mirror?

Abbott must be going for a record for how many people he can piss off. Sex abuse victims vs the clergy, guess who he supports more?
