Just who the hell does the Australian PM think he is? His on going temper tantrums are indicative of an individual out of his depth and emotionally incapable of the responsibilities and behavioural expectations of the Australian population. It’s all well and good to stand in front of a camera, looking for all his worth like the marketing animation “Mr Sheen” trying to feign sincerity, when once he is out of the public glare he has, allegedly, a serious anger problem. How dare he rip into an RAAF steward over his in flight meal. In any other situation this would be seen for what it is- workplace bullying and he would be summoned to explain his actions. Allegedly,he has difficulties keeping staff due to his tyrannical outbursts and his temper is well known in Canberra public servant circles.
He is not an accurate representation of Australians.His supposed affinity with the electorate, suggesting that “we” are all this current financial crisis together is laughable. I doubt whether many of the average working folk feel they have much in common with him- a multi millionaire. Even his preference to wear RM Williams elastic sided boots( with everything) is no more than a pathetic attempt to endear himself to (and I loathe this expression) “working families”. The only thing that suggests is that he is an unsophisticated yokel.Bullying, no matter where it comes from is unacceptable. We have high expectations of our PM and right now Mr Rudd is an embarrassment and in obvious need of some anger management techniques.
