Therese Rein says “if” to Lodge move

By Gungahlin Al - 29 November 2007 29

Strangely, most media reports about Therese Rein’s “fact finding mission” to Canberra except for this one from ABC chopped out a key (to Canberrans anyway) bit at the end of her quote. Her full grab was:

“I’m actually on a fact-finding mission really to find out about possible schools for [our son] Marcus and to go back and have a discussion with him about what the options might be if we move down here.” [Al’s emphasis]

Disappointing given the pretty clear assurances given, that there would even be an “if” in that statement, particularly after the hoo-hah from Labor about the extra costs caused by everyone trucking up to Kirribilli all the time.

And how does one offer the requisite security on a suburban house in Brissy?

It wouldn’t be a good way to kick things off…

maybe before Rudd sends his son to Marist College he may want to send the Feds in (armed with batons) to make sure that all of the kiddie fiddlers out back in the monastery are gone…along with their front office protectors!

Ruddling is a Brisbane Grammar School student until otherwise publicly advised, I’m guessing.
But Canberra Grammar could have the shadow of Patrick Keating’s drinking adventure hanging over it.
Or the YouTube bullying & brawling videos which only recnetly got taken down (but others keep showing up).

Can’t confirm or deny cazjs report, but I do know Marcus Rudd was at Radford earlier this week. Given that that was after cazjs post, it leads to speculation that Rudd jr’s school of choice is yet to be decided.

Strange Rudd is an ex-Marist (Ashgrove, Brisbane) student, but on Facebook his staffers added him to Marist Canberra’s old-boys group. 😐
The Morrisey&Sidorko pairing would have been excited all over themselves if Therese showed up there and expressed an interest.

Mmm, profound

Do they have fagging there?

My sources at Boys Grammar tell me that Marcus was enrolled there this week.

senator lundy on ross solly’s show this morning stated categorically that the rudds will be lodging here…

that said, i really don’t quite get the point of the import – the rest of gov’t is really required to get any gov’t business done, no world leaders simply ‘pop by’ canberra, so why does it matter where the PM is outside parl sitting?
