The Utegate Affair

hmn, I love how they can't think of an original name for the whole scandal.
Australians, what do you think of what's going on? Or are you as confused as I am?
Non Australians, have you even heard of this?

What, you mean the car dealership non-event? If anything it's made me more ashamed of the people we elect into parliament. There was nothing to make a fuss over, and even if it wasn't faked, I wouldn't have cared. I guess Turnbull's just getting impatient with being Opposition Leader for so long, and is desperate to wipe off Rudd's popularity any way he can now.

Australian politics rarely makes my news unfortunately. Just when there's an election, or something big's happening like when Rudd apologized for the stolen generation. I think I heard something a while back too about suing Japanese and Norwegian whalers in international court but I never got a follow up story and that was over a year ago. Thus ends my knowledge on Kevin Rudd.

There was however today about wallabies eating poppies, getting high and making crop circles.

That wallaby thing is true! And awesome!

I was just surprised that a woman in guam on my forum had heard about it.

As the Chaser said: Only an Australian would name something "UTEgate"
I feel shame for my people.

Also I am glad that my faith in Kevin Rudd has (so far) proven right. I hoped that if he was dumb enough to do something like this he would admit to it when asked the first time, because the consequences would be far better for him than trying to hide something everyones looking at. I quite like him still, he has lost none of my support.

Malcom Turnbul (spelling?) however, I was just starting to think he was a tolerable and okay guy and I have lost all faith in him.

And I vote on principle not on the representative, so it doesn't matter which I think is awesome, it matters what party they are part of.

I don't see why he did it. Surely he knew he'd be called out on it?

I don't like his type, really. He's always lived a rich and priviledged life and it shows that Turnbull is a spoilt brat who's used to getting what he wants. He's basically just whinging now because he's not Prime Minister, in my opinion.

Clearly everyone thought they where in the right. It was a huge error on Malcom Turnble's part. Or an awesome set up by the Labour party! That would be the best, most brilliant plot twist. If the whole thing was actually concocted by Kevin Rudd to take down the opposition.

I would like to think the Governement had better things to do, like dealing with this economic difficulty for instance.

I've been listening to 'Question Time' and stuff recently (I've got a TV in the house I'm minding). Apparently they don't have better things to do.
