    10 points to anyone who can identify the reference to Chinese submarines (with out the use of Google)

    Too easy. One of many theories to explain the ‘disappearance’ of another Aussie PM.

    Can’t remember his name though. Went swimming in some bay down Victoria way and never came back.

    Yep, it was a reference to one of the many conspiracies surrounding the disappearance of Harold Holt. Hence why I laughed so much and posted the reference to it when I first posted this video on the Rudd going thread this morning.

    It was Billy Mcmahon and i think it was 68?

    So now the Aussies have their own Clark and Gillard will do to them what Clark did to us. Their economy will tank within 2 years as she goes on a madcap Socialist spend up of all times if they get re elected.

    Harold Holt did the bolt.
    Kevin Rudd was a Dud.

    So the Chinese are behind Rudd’s down fall… they must have shares in the Australian mining companies… and are merely protecting their assetts… and Rudd can’t swim.

    Isn’t the whole of Australia a Chinese assett… protected by chinese submarines.

    I canot view this at work – but my fondness memory of Rudd was his treatment of Clark when he first became PM. That was just priceless and completely appropriate.

    Yes, Harold Holt. In one of the strangest examples of nomenclature our local pool in Malvern (Melbourne) is the “Harold Holt Swiming Centre” !!!

    We’ve been cheated! Krudd was supposed to stay PM so we the people could boot him out and make him a quaint statistic in the record books – second PM since federation to lose a government after a single term.

    Now we’ve got GoHard, and a sentimental appeal to the double x-chromosome set. Bastards.

    An election in October, and a tougher job for Brother Abbott.

    It is curious but true that whatever the Aussies do Kiwis invariably mimic. It will not go unnoticed by the Labour caucus that polls cannot be ignored and that leadership change is not so hard after all. Yesterday Rudd was packing for the G20 and preparing his speech to the NZ Parliament; today he was gone by lunchtime. The odds against ‘fill-in’ Phil seeing out the year as leader have shortened considerably.

    Well I guess that’s one good thing about today. We won’t have to listen to twisted words of mealy mouthed control freak trougher in our house. Well at least not that Ausiie one. Still have our own of course.
    The man was forever a shithead so that tells you a lot about Aussies that they could make him their PM.
    It also tells us a lot about the useless lot of journo’s they have. That not one could expose the arsehole for what he really was before the election.
    Oh but wait a minute are they not all employed by the Union that runs these things for Rupert and co.?

    One can only hope she is not another Helen Clark.

    It was a great day for NZ when we lost the H1H2 virus, but now it’s a virus infecting the UN and sure to spread.

    According to Wikipedia: “Gillard has never married or had children. Her partner since 2006, Tim Mathieson, is a hairdresser.”
    A hairdresser? She could be Australia’s Helen Clark.

    I predict Julia Gillard will be very hard to beat. If she can settle the mining tax, get a good robust policy on boat people and provide a roadmap on getting a price on carbon she will be well on her way to being elected as PM. Even tough she started as a leftie she appears to be much more middle of the road now and hugely competent.

    British author Anthony Grey wrote a non-fiction book claiming Harold Holt swam out to a Chinese mini-sub the day he went missing in Cheviot Bay. Apparent;ly he was a deep cover spy. But seriously

    Thanks to whoever did that clever video so quickly after the Rudd downfall. The political references are spot on. Obviously a keen political observer. Love to all on the East Islands of Australia.
