Australian PM on shaky ground ..How Australians play dirty pool

youngquinn_gwFebruary 18, 2012

As many posters are aware The Australian Prime Minister is simply the leader of the party with the most seats in the lower house.

SO , Australians do not vote for their PM, but leave it to the party to elect the best leader.

A few years ago , due to declining support then PM Kevin Rudd was deposed in a vote of no confidence, in favour of Julia Gillard.

Well it appears Kevin Rudds star is once more ascending....as his support grows..and a challenge looks likely......all of a sudden AN ANNONYMOUS video of him losing control and swearing his head off is posted on YOUTUBE overnight.

He maintains that it had to have some from the PMs Office...and it was a series of out takes from a number of years ago.

Dirty pool!!

as I am often critical of the American political system , I thought it only fair to point out the shifty dealings in our own system.

I watch witn interest to see what will happen next.

politicians are the same , it appears ...wherever they come from

ideo of him losing control and swearing his head off ...

That's rather tame, isn't it?

He isn't advocating starting a nuclear war against Russia, or singing about bombing Iran.

Yes Nancy I have seen a lot worse from other politicians. I amainly think its dirty pool if the prime Ministers office has had this tape for 2 years and keeps it until now...when he is threatening to challenge.

There wil be a spill of the leadership in the near furute I think.

I wonder what the world will think of us if we go back to our old Prime Minister??
