Separate rules for politicians

New Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was on the television, during the cricket Test against India, yesterday. Nice follow-on from former cricket “tragic” John Howard.

In the interview Rudd remarked all the public servants in Canberra were working during the Christmas break, and that they didn’t need to be “on holiday at Batemans Bay”.

That’s all well and good, considering a new government needs to get things in shape. However, the politicians were on holiday, with Ministers reportedly being unavailable.

Rudd obviously wasn’t at work either.

In my book that’s pretty poor management and the first black mark (well, a grey one) against the government, which should be leading by example. Now, get back to work.
