Mr. Rudd needs to listen to his supporters.
Kein Rudd needs to support Labor and defeat Abbott.That means he needs to support Julia Gillard and not run a feral leadership campaign,Wake up Kevin, rally behind your leader you stupid dickhead. She's the leader. You can help Labor win. If you don't do this I might take some action ala USA revenge scenariosget real arsehole
The worlds economy is sprialling out of control, Australia is considered to be one of the few economies that is looking healthy years after the GFC hit the world. Why? Because the Rudd government made sure that money was still circulating in our economy. Daily highly educated people are being made redundant in Australia, why now? Maybe because Rudd isnt steering the ship. Politicians are very good at making decisions to win elections, but Statemen look to the long term. You will be begging him to come back, but will it be too late? Everyone looks to China as the economic saviour of economies, who is highly qualiified to nogtiate Australian.
We didn't kick Rudd out, he got back stabbed by Julia. The Australian people want Kevin Rudd as our leader again, Julia is ruining this country, and Tony Abbot will do even more damage. We need Kevin Rudd to make our country good again. We don't want back stabbers and Budgie smugglers as our leader...If Julia really thinks AUSTRALIA wants HER to be PM, put it up for elections. Julia vs Tony vs Kevin, and we shall see what Australia does. We want Julia gone more than the next guy. Even more so Tony Abbot, We want Kevin Rudd back, He was actually a really good Prime Minister.
Kevin Rudd!! We want you to visit or skype with the World Region's class at Virginia Tech! Check out our vid!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gra5KJzLh8Q&feature=youtu.be
Kevin Rudd, the Australian people want you as our Prime Minister. We don't want a PM who broke Australia and back stabbed the former Prime Minister. Australia wants you, we don't want Julia and we definatly don't want Tony Abbot. They will both ruin this country more. You might not win in the ballots against the other members, but if it was up to Australia, we would choose you to lead our nation once again, and put this country in safe hands again. RISE UP! and go to the elections!
Kevin Rudd should form his own political party. His party would be a real alternative to Abbott who thinks that working people have no rights and the incompetent Julia Gillard who stuffs up everything that she touches. She absolutely killed off the live cattle trade to Indonesia and as a result would have made other live cattle importers re-assess their trade with Australia. Knee Jerk reactions goaded by panic is not the way to handle situations such as those.We don't want that idiot Tony Abbott who acts like the ventriloquist's puppet. Kevin Rudd already has the high profile, the experience and the contacts with our closest trading partners. Kevin Rudd would be surprised with the groundswell of support he would receive. The vast majority absolutely hate Julia Gillard and see her as nothing but a lying, backstabbing, hard nosed and stupid person who has lost touch with reality.
You are right!
Kev - you are a clown, you aint forign minister, you got sacked, NOBODY wants you, get back in your box
Dear Labor,I am a 42-year-old man who is a husband and father of four kids aged 6 to 13. I am a quintessential Labor heartland 'target'. I have been a life-long supporter of the party and a member since 2006 or so (currently unfinancial - see below). Since joining the ALP, I have noticed a couple of things that should concern you:1) I joined before the highly successful 'Kevin '07' campaign and was elated with his victory over what was an embarrassing, uncaring, self-righteous and pompous liberal/national government that told me and my family that we should look out for ourselves and fuck the rest of the country and the planet.2) The Labor Party then took the man who inspired me and many of my work colleagues (swinging voters who speak their mind to me over the fabled 'watercooler') and knifed him in the back.Today, I am left to defend the indefensible - the mid-term 'political assassination' of one of the most popular PMs ever elected in this country. I cannot begin to explain to my community why the ALP decided to dispense with KRudd. Kevin had made some poor calls leading up to his demise, but had he done to the last election still in charge of the country, he'd have won with a narrow majority and learned a valuable lesson in the process. If I am wrong (i.e. had he suffered a narrow loss), then the ALP could have still held its head high in opposition. However, today - in 2013 - the ALP is lost. We have no direction, there's no chance of beating the negative fear-monger in charge of the conservatives and there is nothing left in which I or my left-leaning peers can take any pride.The ALP won government in a landslide in 2007 and has since set about achieving the greatest act of political self-immolation ever seen in this country. Ask yourselves - since when was it the 'Labor way' to abandon the light on the hill in the pursuit of polls? When did the ALP start down the cancerous road of developing policy in response to focus group feedback?The ALP is a fine and proud institution that has not been served well in recent years. I do not advocate a return to the Rudd era - you have poisoned that well in your pursuit of factional power. What I do advocate is a return to principles - that the views and desires of the wealthy and privileged few are no more or no less than those of their fellow citizens of lesser means or opportunity; that social justice is a fundamental basis for community; that no individual should be denied a chance to succeed; and, that individual or minority pain and suffering should not be ignored to pander to the ignorance, selfishness and prejudice of the majority.In short my message to you is this. Return to your roots - the foundation that made the ALP great - before it it too late. The 2013 election is gone - I accept that and you should too. But at least introduce some proud and defiant principle into the last four months of government - for my sake and for the sake of the many disillusioned supporters of the hope of 2007.
Kevin,Excellent article on your new, carefully thought-through and principled position marriage equality. That's more like it.42-year-old father of four.
Positive /true article above. I am a swinging voter but helped to elect you, Kevin in 2007 and was sorry for you when stabbed in the back and removed from PM.I still had faith in you and hoped you would make a comeback and possibly bring some sanity back into the governance of Australia, for the people by the people instead of factional in fighting and political indulgence and self preservation with all "snouts in the trough and on the gravy train" We used to be a proud, free and democratic nation, but sad to say now because of the push for globalization, one world government, one world monetary system, we can no longer claim to be a free nation of Australians. So why has our leaders, past and present of what ever political persuasion, show some GUTS or BALLS and tell the few remaining true Australian people what their agenda is instead of these subversive tactics being used to bring the people and my country to it's knees and when this happens, all men will wear the trousers back to front (with the opening at the back so as not to damage their trousers)and will say "YES" to everything in an effort to provide for their families. So I think it is all too late to shut the gate as the horse has gone. Sorry to say this last declaration of K Rudd's in support of "GAY Marriages", coming from a conventional married man with a family would reincarnate his ancestral name sake, one "Steel Rudd" who was a real man and POLITICAN". I realize that you are privileged to change your mind but can't for the life of me see what you hope to glean from your action but there must be some ulterior motive, like to destabilize the government more or to be under instructions from some foreign power to introduce this to my country, and fall into line with New Zealand, France and now the UK. I am one of the old breed and believe that of copulating is between Man and Woman, but now it is called being "GAY" where it used to be called, Man, "POOFTER" and Women, "Lesbians" but now we have to be Political Correct and lose our right to freedom of speech. In conclusion Kevinfor what it is worth you have just lost my respect and put yourself down in the gutter and could possibly walk under a snakes belly with a topper hat on. So best of luck to you and the so called LABOR PARTY in the September election, as you will certainly need a miracle.
A P.S to the above, Kevin if you know of a country free of this gay marriage shit, that I could migrate to, be it legally or under the guise of being a BOAT PERSON or an asylum seeker then please let me know, before this rubbish gay marriage is made compulsory
If Kevin Rudd challenges again in two weeks, dis-endorse him and throw him out.His personal glory is blinkered to the good of the party and he needs to suffer the consequences. Three strikes, and every one of them has damaged the party. Enough is enough.
