…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
The poor bloke was never conscious of his limitations, and so he does not realise that his proper metier would be a clerk counting paper-clips in some government bureaucracy. Were it not for his over-ambitious wife, he could lead a happy life. Naturally, he is not the only married man in such a predicament; but why we have to suffer with him? We did not marry her.
A political expert Samantha Maiden wrote on Sunday 24th March: “By hanging his supporters out to dry on Thursday when he announced he wouldn’t challenge, Kevin Rudd proved once and for all he is unfit to lead the Labor Party.”
I respectfully disagree. Rudd proved he is just the right person to lead the Australian Labor Party. He only confirmed that he is not fit to lead Australia, nor, for that matter, to organise an orgy in a brothel. That Labor had to turn to such a proven duplicitous incompetent, tells us, or ought to tell us, a lot about that party. True to his form, he deceived his comrades. Unless his wife finally accepts the futility of her efforts, he will try again.
