Bernard Keane of Crikey is talking through his hat. This is not a question of bipartisan support for a well proven and trusted public figure. It is common sense in the face of a man who has proven himself not only incompetent for the job but mentally unstable in holding positions of authority where judgement and tolerance is required. Rudd because of his mental health issues is automatically disqualified for any position of responsibility in the public arena.
Turnbull has made a big mistake in setting up a Royal Commission over these Four Corners’ allegations. The Commission will become a platform for every deadbeat and his dog to rail against the Correctional system. Crimes by Aboriginals are out of control in NT and the local indigenous community will not accept responsibility for their wilful and criminal ways.
Mrs Raji Sukumaran makes the inevitable cry from the heart but she has still not comprehended the enormity of her son’s crime. That I suppose is the prerogative of a mother, never to accept responsibility for her son’s criminality. Myuran Sukumaran never showed true remorse by cooperating fully with the police. He never made full and frank admissions and refused to provide the police with a clear and precise description of the drug importation racket he ran and organised. Mrs Sukumaran would rather cry over a bunch of deadbeats in an Indonesian penitentiary than save the young Australian lives that would have been lost to eight kilos of heroin on the streets of Sydney.
By the way, the true and tried solution to these ferals is not, of course, the treatment they recently received but the methods of old; the judicious application of corporal punishment in the best interest of the child. Instead of spending millions of dollars on a lawyers’ talk-fest, Mr Turnbull should hire the Master of Discipline of Changi Prison and have him come down here and administer ten stokes of the rattan cane to the backsides of these brats with a further understanding that if they re-offend they can look forward to further canings until they become law abiding citizens. The fathers of these ferals should also be caned for dereliction of parental duty.
Kevin Rudd, Kevin 07 is certainly qualified for the nut house. Surely to god the powers that be will recognise that he is an escapee from a mental institution.
Go Donald, go. Clinton is a clapped out show pony who has been running round the rink for donkey ages. She could not run a pie cart of the fourth of July. Give us a break and dump the tart.
Poor old Glenn, how the mighty have fallen. Mate, get a job for once in ya life. Every show pony has his day, capiech
