An (Un)believable Prime Minister

An (Un)believable prime minister

You’ll note I’ve used lower case letters in the words prime minister. I have done that to show I no longer believe that, because of their previous actions in government, either of the candidates for the position deserve to hold the position of Australia’s most senior politician.

Some people may disagree with me but it is my belief, that not only have both of them brought the position of Prime Minister into disrepute but that they also have done the same to  federal government MPs and federal parliamentarians as a whole.

Since Kevin Rudd’s reign as Prime Minister was extinguished in 2010 by a cabal of spineless politicians who were instrumental in replacing him with Julia Gillard, the Labor Government has lived on borrowed time something that showed clearly at the 2010 election when it couldn’t get a majority.

There’s no doubt Gillard was also a partner in the cabal led by Bill Shorten, albeit a silent partner, that removed Kevin Rudd as Prime Minister. But what does that say about the other partners in the cabal. I think the behaviour of these people puts all government members in an unfavourable light, a character image that some do not deserve.

It was inevitable that Rudd a man of ambition who has cast himself in a messianic role, would ever accept that Giilard was better than him and set out to prove it. The result, following the election of 2010 Gillard had to fight a battle to demonstrate she possessed the right qualities to be Prime Minister and love her or hate her she delivered.

Naturally she made mistakes but making mistakes and recovering from them is what makes a person strong. However it is said that a chan is only as strong as its weakest link. That this is true can be seen by the fact that Bill Shorten suddenly, or so it seemed, continued to support Julia Gillard until push came to shove when, as he did with Rudd, showed himself  a Judas Iscariot.

Not that he was alone. Many other MPs showed themselves to be in the same category. And so on the last two days before the current parliament and just over two months to the next election, Shorten and his troop of fellow Iscariots mounted a challenge to unseat her. But even if he manages to do that, there’s no guarantee Rudd will become Prime Minister.

That this might not happen is because Labor only managed to form a minority government based on an agreement the Independents had with Julia that they would support her, and only her, as Prime Minister. So if Rudd wins the ballot, will they support him?

If you’ve drawn the conclusion from what I’ve written that I am not a Rudd supporter or Gillard supporter but a supporter of Tony Abbot, you would be wrong. None of them impress me. On the other hand the messages from Rudd and Gillard as they spoke to the media before the leadership vote were not so much about policy and what they could for voters, they were, in essence, messages of hate directed at Tony Abbott.

With that in mind following and now that Rudd expects to be Prime Minister, after the next election Australians could again be faced with a government that isn’t supported by the majority of Australian voters and a government led by a man who not only is not to be trusted but also has lied his way to power?

My final comment however, is that I firmly believe that come election time, Australians will show they are much wiser than the politicians think.

Comment welcome.
