Watch out Public Service, looks like Kevin’s on a tear

By johnboy 28 June 2013 18

Well it looks like from now until caretaker mode restored Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is expecting the Public Service to develop an entire election policy platform for him.

To do this well would take at least a year, so should be bulk max abbott for all involved.

If you do get hit by a folder feel free to send the bruise pictures in to images@the-riotact.com .

Considering most money given to Oxfam goes towards paying off large mortgages in Surrey and Devon, boasting of getting conned by those idiots is a bit of an own goal.

Do you have anything, anything at all, to back up such a disparaging and insulting claim? Or are you just expressing your own excessive negativity and cynicism?

Whilst it is healthy to question or be skeptical about the things you hear, that does not mean you should “trust nobody or anything”. Being skeptical means reserving judgement. It does not mean being instantly negative.

The people who run Oxfam insist on receiving generous wages. Their second priority is advertising & PR. Back in third place is spending a little bit of what’s left over on some actual charity.

I thought Oxfam Australia was a different (but affiliated) monkey? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxfam_Australia

Where’s my barrel of liquified meat product?

I am amazed at the number of people who seem to think that Kev will start throwing money at people again. I do realise that your comment is (I hope) in jest, but there seems to be a number of our fellow voters who are of the view that Saint Kev will start buying votes again.

given past experience why would this amaze you? vote buying prior to elections is, so far as i can tell, a time honoured tradition. seems a bit “amazing” that you would be amazed at people expecting rudd to behave as he and a very, very long line of politicians have behaved up to now. i’d be amazed if he didn’t throw cash around.

I don’t really have a comment about oxfam specifically (although it’s one of the charities that use them), but money donated through chuggers is certainly not money well spent.

    Much as it shames me Medicine Sans Frontieres got me with a chugger many years ago and have been making clean dollars off me for some time now.

I gave my $900 to Oxfam (Or was it 800 – didn’t Saint Bob get it reduced a little?) I did claim it as a tax deduction the following July and spent the rebate.

I wouldn’t worry about it – Rudd’s decided to make illegal immigration his “point of difference”. What a moron. I don’t know who the ALP have advising them, but that they have nobody to explain to Rudd that illegal immigration is the one big, huge clusterfok that he should really be being really, really quiet about.

I’m afraid Rudd’s choice of topic to talk about has just guarranteed the ALP an election loss. Bye bye Rudd.

And anyway, it’s not called buying votes. The correct term is ‘stimulating the economy’.

can I add – “…through financially empowering electoral demographic groups through this process.”

Labor have already cut 7000 jobs from the PS over the past few years. I wonder if Kev can cut another 5000 before the election, then Tony won’t have to cut any!

What cynicism. If the last few days have shown us anything, it’s that Kevin is a statesman of integrity. We are indeed fortunate that the great man has again risen to the top in the contest of ideas that is our federal parliament

And anyway, it’s not called buying votes. The correct term is ‘stimulating the economy’.

Truly amazing. Looking forward to the debate on debt and deficits – there’s mud to be thrown in both directions.

Just wondering if it is correct to describe the possibility (!) of Abbott being our next PM as double-plus bulk totes Abbott?

Or is that like googling google, which, as we all know, causes computers to explode.

Thumper 12:32 pm 28 Jun 13

Hmm.. Someone I know recently commented along the lines of “it’s not that Rudd makes people work ridiculously hard, it more that he makes them work ridiculously hard for no reason”.

Wish I had the leave to take three months off.

Assume that would get me past the election.
