Hospital showdown

April 17, 2010

Paul Kelly in today’s The Weekend Australian:

Brumby dismisses the referendum threat with contempt.

Yet the message Rudd gives in private, as well as public, is that the referendum is a serious fallback. Who is he fooling?

If it is serious, then Rudd would have to escalate the issue. Whoever heard of a referendum to carry a 60-40 per cent funding split plan for public hospitals.

It is a joke.

Rudd is a joke, though a very unfunny one.
