Irrespective of the suitability for the role, l am curious to know who in the labour government out muscled the PM, when he earlier emphatically stated that Kevin Rudd would not be the Ambassador to the USA. For clarity, the PM’s assertion was televised.
ps apologies for confusing those who may be reading the US Politics thread. 8)

Thanks Jackspratt. When Kevin Rudd’s appointment was announced, the mainstream media here in Australia showed archival footage (prior to May election ) of Anthony Albanese stating that Kevin Rudd would not be considered for the ambassadorial role. I have not been able to retrieve that footage from www. Was the statement made back in April a deliberate attempt to shield Anthony Albanese from elector backlash, given that Kevin Rudd had polarised partisan electors and Australians in a wider sense and essentially still on the nose.

Noosard and TT are anti Labor, as a result they say anything, but frankly do not even know anything about the process and foolishly display their ignorance.

Rudd is out of the country and in a position where he can't shoot his mouth off about Murdoch, Trump, China or anything else that the media feed him. Stroke of genius by someone :-"

Can't help yourself Tam, can you? Given the chance to butt in on a thread that you have never participated in, you just have to throw in another petty comment. *****!

Is there something l have missed. I didn’t realise that forum contributors needed to seek approval from the self professed oracle before commenting on subjects raised. Silly me.

Whistler,
You have some really serious anger issues, l would offer to fund some professional counselling for you but my sense of chivalry does extend to the point of covering these expenses for the foreseeable future.

Spot on, I have anger issues.

I get angry when I see bog stupid people like you that that mindlessly support criminals like Donald Trump. When you regurgitate incomprehensible conspiracy theories al la Qanon. I get angry when idiots like you publish regurgitated lies from evil organisations like the Murdoch Empire.

I will continue expose such idiots who deny climate change, Luddite all.

Not intellectualism, no respect for science, no respect for facts, just mindless idiots

You have posted on this site, that people who do not support Trump should lose their personal superannuation you sent a message to.me that friends of your will not pay a bet because the Italian government and the pope sent sattelites over America to flip votes away from Trump.

So don't lecture me, I work on facts and not the fantasy of right wing nutters

Here's a fact for you. Do you notice that your ability to edit your own posts properly is inversely proportional to your online anger?

G'night.

What I have noticed is that you are a troll. Whenever I post, you just cannot help yourself. I met somebody a while ago who said he knew you. He said in real life you were a nice guy, but when you are online you become a right nasty.

Nobody likes trolls and since giggle, lone star, declan and that ilk no longer appear on this forum, you remain the number one troll.

So that's why you tried to reach out to me via the PM network earlier this year? You think I'm a nice guy.

But now you can add Troll Hunter to your resume as this forum's leading pursuer of factual positivity and enforcer of last wordism.

You're a legend, that's what you is.
