Working hours and the Labor Coup

Good afternoon Glenn,

I’m glad you had a good time at your Christmas function yesterday, sounds like you had a lot of fun.

You said earlier that you wouldn’t want to start work at the same time as George and Paul but you would like to go home when they do…well how about this idea. On an 9-5 day, start work on Perth time, and spend the rest of the day on Auckland time…so effectively you start work at 9am Perth time by which time it is already 2pm and you’ve got a morning tea break and a lunch break to catch up on…it could be 3:30 by the time you finish them so you can go and have afternoon tea, and then just because your boss is feeling generous you can go home an hour early!

And the Labor Party Coup…slightly more democratic than the Fijian one, but still a hard choice…how do I choose between a man who can’t remember a name, and a man who, if allowed to talk for any length of time, manages to veer off topic, blame the government for everything and get just about everyone off side with at least one of his comments.

Still, if I had to choose between Beazley, Rudd and ACT Chief Turnip Jon Stanhope, I know which one wouldn’t have a chance…and it’s not Beazley or Rudd!

Have a great weekend Glenn.

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart
Canberra

I think John Stanhope is a very good Chief Minister.

I feel sorry for you. Mind you, you are making that statement from an ADSL connection in Victoria, so you could just be making it up.

I have a relative in Canberra who quite likes him.

That’s an interesting basis for liking someone…each to their own, but I still feel sorry for you (and now your relative).

“and a man who, if allowed to talk for any length of time, manages to veer off topic, blame the government for everything and get just about everyone off side with at least one of his comments”

Once again you can’t resist an inane criticism in line with your conservative talkback heroes. The only difference is that atleast their criticisms are reasonable and not utterly fabricated , unintelligent, ill thought out drivel.

Do you even have a single example where Rudd has veered off topic and gotten “just about everyone offside with one of his comments”?

And as for blaming the government for everything, how is that different from Bill Stefaniak or any other Liberal opposition leader in Australia?
