Hosties beware! He’s back 12/9/2010
Not a lot has changed. Kevin Rudd will spend most of his time overseas while Julia Gillard runs the country. Well, runs it as best she can while protecting her back from the schemers and assassins who put her there in the first place.
Labor right-faction numbers man Bill Shorten, who helped Ms Gillard roll Kevin Rudd in June, has been promoted to assistant treasurer.
This should be amusing until the nation decides it’s time for grown-up government.
The very considerate Rachel Croucher offers her Facebook regrets in the wake of Rudd’s elevation:
Rachel Croucher would like to apologise to all of my friends who work for various embassies across the world for the fact that our new Foreign Minister is a dickhead. And heartfelt commiserations to my friends who work at DFAT.
