Who is the most trustworthy: Abbot  or Rudd?

The idea for this blog came on Sunday afternoon while watching on TV the 1965 fantasy film “She” from Hammer Films which starred Ursula Andress in the role of Ayesha, also known as “She – Who – Must – Be – Obeyed, who knockout me out when first I saw her as Honey Ryder in the Bond film Dr No. Although as a film “She” was no great shakes, Ursula Andress, in the role of a 2,000 years old woman, still knocked me out.

In the film “She” is an immortal queen and high priestess of a lost African city, who believes Leo, member of a party of archaeologists who find the city, is the identical reincarnation of a lover she killed 2000 years and tries to persuade him that if he walks into a mystical blue fire, he will also become immortal.

If you wonder why this film fantasy sparked an idea it is simply because mid-afternoon the film was interrupted by the current Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, who many people think a fantasist, announced the date of the next federal election as 7th September. The only thing I’ll say about the announcement is that it was as good as the film.

In fact Kevin’s announcement contained elements of Ayesha like immortality, in this case of the political kind. Unfortunately for Kevin a man called Tony Abbott who is also seeking government rebuts Kevin’s claim and in return says Kevin is a carpetbagger and not a man to be trusted.

That Tony rebuts Kevin’s claims isn’t surprising because while Kevin, his cohorts and sycophants say Tony has not announced his policies, in a clear case of having their cake and eating it, they say his policies will cause chaos to the economy and severe job losses. I hope they keep the crystal ball they used to read Tony’s unannounced policies safe under lock and key as it’s worth a fortune.

Today, of course, is really only the first day of the official election campaign and if one can be sure of anything in respect of political campaigns one can be sure that even bigger lies and stronger language will be used before 7th September.

The Kevin lobby has said also that Tony Abbot will slash jobs in the public service. That said, the Australian Public Service union claims Kevin’s public service efficiency dividend policy will cause the loss of 5,000 jobs. At the same time many people are scathing about his mooted bank levy that savers will have to pay on accounts under $250,000 not to mention carbon tax plus his Asylum Seekers policy that many people seem to think will strip the people already deprived of most of the their human rights of the reminder.

At this stage the best way I can describe the different attitudes of the two men are: Kevin Rudd seems to have cast himself in the role of a Presidential Prime Minister. In fact some people see him as dictatorial while Tony Abbott is saying he does not want to be a Presidential Prime Minister but a Prime Minister of the people.

Ursula Andress (born 19 March 1936) is a Swiss actress and a sex symbol of the 1960s. Andress, became famous as Honey Ryder, in the film, Dr. No (1962), the first Bond movie. In a well-known scene, she rises out of the Caribbean Sea in a white bikini. The scene made Andress the “quintessential” Bond girl. Andress, also co-starred with Elvis Presley in the film, Fun in Acapulco(1963), with Frank Sinatra in, 4 for Texas (1963), opposite Marcello Mastroianni in, The 10th Victim (1965), and as the countess in, The Blue Max (1966). She also performed in the Bond satire, Casino Royale (1967). Her heavy accent was dubbed over in Dr. No, but she used her own voice in Casino Royale. In 1957 Andress married actor/director, John Derek; they divorced in 1966. Andress dated many of Hollywood’s leading men, including co-stars Marlon Brando and James Dean. In 1980 she had a son, Dimitri, with American actor Harry Hamlin, her co-star in the film, Clash of the Titans(1981).

This is our first time my spouse and i visit here. I ran across so many interesting stuff with your blog, specially its conversation. From the plenty of comments on the posts, I guess I am not alone having all the enjoyment right here! Keep up the excellent work.

Shortly before his death in 1955, film icon James Dean became involved with 19-year-old Andress. In 1957, she married actor/director John Derek ; they divorced in 1966. One of her longest affairs was with Jean-Paul Belmondo while he was still married to his first wife.
