Queen’s Birthday holiday, and the rumours of a Kevin Rudd revival

An email to 2GB’s Andrew Moore who is filling in for Alan Jones today

Good morning Andrew,

You posed an interesting question at the top of the hour about whether supporters of a republic would take advantage of the Queen’s Birthday public holiday. I support the monarchy, but I’m working today…where’s the Republican to do my shift today (but I’ll keep my public holiday penalty rates).

As for Kevin Rudd, I agree with you that if he takes over the Labor leadership he will immediately call an election. But I don’t think the public will fall for it and it would result in an even bigger loss for Labor…perhaps that would be a good thing.

Happy Birthday! (that’s the greeting today isn’t it?),
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

Happy QE II B’day Samuel 🙂
and thank you for the suggestion (today’s greeting) 🙂
Hopefully I’ll have opportunity to practice this on friends later today.
Gee I must be waking up!; typo spotted 1st line “if” 🙂
{naughty habit of mine sometimes kicks in. But usually after brekkie}

Thanks Noel, and a happy Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday to you too.

Thanks for spotting the “if”. Autocorrect on my phone seems to change “of” to “if” at random intervals. It is a matter of ongoing frustration.
