Kevin Rudd's motherhood statements (letter)


by Frank Bellet

News Weekly, September 29, 2007

Sir,

Kevin Rudd makes yet another sweeping motherhood statement, and it makes headlines ("Rudd to confront states on pokies", The Australian, September 11, 2007). He went on to say that he "wanted to wean the states off dependency on pokies for revenue".

In the first place, the Queensland Goss Labor Government (1989-1996) - of which Rudd was chief adviser - weaned the states on to poker machines, which they now consider to be licences to print money. Personally, I believe they are a licence to steal money.

However, now Rudd wants us to believe he can "wean" the states off dependency on them for revenue.

No details of his plan. He just wants everyone to trust him as prime minister, and he'll sort it all out later.

Frank Bellet,
Petrie Qld
