Kevin Rudd for PM? (letter)


by M. Mitchell

News Weekly, March 4, 2006
Sir,

I do not subscribe to orthodox religion, yet I fully support what are known as Christian values.

When ABC television recently repeated the incomparable Geraldine Doogue's interview of Kevin Rudd on the Compass program's "Kevin Rudd: The God Factor" (first broadcast on May 8, 2005), I was quite charmed. Now there's a man I'd like to see as PM, I thought.

Yet Labor Party factionalism compels me to vote Liberal. Pity.

If Labor would pursue centrism, with excursions to left or right as required, it would be home and hosed, no doubt. In the same fashion, churches could regain what they have lost.

M. Mitchell,
Bairnsdale, Vic.
