“Australia is crying out for a stable government and only the Coalition can be trusted to deliver what it promises”: The Sydney Morning Herald. A surprise? Not really. The SMH could not escape the stench of rampant criminality in the NSW Right; the mob that installed both Rudd and Gillard… then Rudd again.
The (Fairfax) Age held to the Victorian Socialist hard-Left line and asked readers to vote for Rudd with: “Labor best reflects our values and offers visionary, forward-thinking and nation-building policies.”
Another surprise? Not really.
Both Fairfax newspapers have lambasted the Murdoch Press for its criticism of Rudd but the SMH belatedly remembered it needs to sell papers to those in Sydney’s west who are about to slaughter the most incompetent government in history.
Apparently shareholder pragmatism still has some push in the SMH.
There is no such pragmatism in the grey halls of The Age. It persists with bizarre articles by Pasco, Summers, Colebatch, MacTiernan and a host of dishonest, naive, so-called ‘journos’, who are delighted to be out of step with a nation that has had a gutful of this ALP rabble.
The Age (I am ashamed to admit I once worked for it) boasts a readership demographic of corrupt unionists, inner suburban Greens and nouveau riche, double-income homosexuals.
To suggest to its readers that a Rudd Government should be returned is unthinkable and entirely out of touch with reality and popular wont… but that is the essence of The Age. Always has been.
Kevin Rudd is not just a worthless leader, he is a worthless person and that has been shown to be true on so many levels.
Tony Abbott stands for everything The Age despises; decency, family values, genuine compassion and integrity.
The Age today stood alone as the one major newspaper in Australia that promoted second prize of a Rudd return. It doggedly clung to its beloved Julia Gillard until Rudd finally hunted her down and killed her.
With fresh blood on his feminine hands, The Age still supports this loathsome assassin rather than entertain a morsel of conservative values.
Perhaps the betting equally reflects the value of both Rudd and Fairfax.
Rudd’s price: $11, Abbott’s, $1.03
Fairfax share price: $6.00 in 2000, 56c today.
