Attacked the Greens for not having family values. Opposed paid parental leave. Said she didn't believe in gay marriage and that mariage should be between a man and a woman. Said women "do not think the same way as men". Said that women in marriage are like prostitutes.
After forming a coalition with the Greens MP, introduced a carbon tax After leading the Labor Party in a disastrous election, claimed her predecessor had sabotaged it After leading Labor to its lowest ever poll ratings, claimed her leadership was being sabotaged by her predecessor After her predecessor went to the back bench and remained silent on all issues, blamed the media for sabotaging her government When she found out that Peter Slipper, a member of the Liberal Party, would lose pre-selection because of alleged dubious conduct, she offered him a deal to become speaker of the house and so gain an extra vote.
Slipper subsequently had sexual harassment and fraud allegations levelled against him and had to stand aside Made a deal with an independent to crack down on problem gambling using poker machines.
Reneged on deal when she was able to manipulate numbers to eliminate the need for the independent Said if she had been Aboriginal, rather than a woman, there would have been more outrage at the discrimination she believed she suffered.
When she discovered that her speaker referred to a jar of muscles as a jar of delicious "salty cunts", she stood by him and launched into a speech accusing her critics of misogyny.
Polls showed that she was the most unpopular prime minister in history. It seemed to protect her ego but it had as much success as her office's plan to set an angry mob of Indigenous people onto her political enemy. Gillard blamed her failure on sexism of the Australian public.
Perhaps a more objective reading would be that she was so desperate to hold onto power that she sold her soul to an opposition party and independents in a way that made it impossible to portray herself as honourable, honest and capable of solving the difficult problems.
At the very least, history will not assert her as a leader of great morality. As the royal commision into union corruption found, aside from her status as a former prime minister, there was nothing in her history to suggest she was of good character.
Grew up on a dairy farm in rural Queensland Father died when he was 11 and his family was evicted from the farm Joined the ALP when he was 15 After high school, hitch-hiked down the east coast and eventually reached Canberra Always wore RM Williams Boots - even to parliament Majored in Chinese and became the first western leader to speak fluent putonghua Spent most of his early career working in Australian embrassies in foreign countries As shadow foreign minister, reformulated Labor's foreign policy in terms of the "Three Pillars": Told a European audience that this made him an "An absolute pedigree.
Fuelled the populist position with tax-payer funded advertising intended to "raise awareness" of global warming Said reducing carbon emissions was the "great moral challenge of our generation.
At the subsequent meeting, Bush demonstrated that Rudd was not a person of importance to him When in opposition, said political advertising paid by the federal government was a "cancer on democracy". When in government, used taxpayer funds on campaigns to raise awareness of the government concern about global warming and in its fight with the mining industry In response to collapses of American and European banks, went on a spending spree to ward off recession.
Meanwhile, Australia's chief export countries of Japan, China and South Korea never went into recession. China used its surplus to buy depressed stocks Vowed to rid the world of nuclear weapons, build a new broadband network, integrate Asia into an European style union, stop global warming, regulate global currency trade, remove disadvantage in Aboriginal communities and stop whaling by the Japanese.
Never said how the goals would be achieved, and never achieved any of them In little less than 6 months, went from Australia's most popular prime minister in history, to a political liability.
His party removed him from office without Rudd even contesting the spill. After losing the the leadership, became Foreign Minister, but Julia Gillard blamed him for destablishing her government.
Challenged for the leadership, lost and went to the backbench, where he continued to be blamed for Gillard's low popularity If Gillard supporters are to be believed, managed to out communicate the entire Labor Party in a way that eroded Gillard's popularity and forced the party to draft him back into leadership Was filmed pulling ear-wax out of his ear and subsequently eating it Leaked American cables said of him: In his initial years in government, the political trick worked equally well.
However, when the electorate demanded results, his popularity went into freefall. Threats, anger and intimidation then became the staples of his leadership.
His response to the Global Financial Crisis was classic Rudd in that it served his short-term political needs and enabled him to rub shoulders with World Leaders; however, it pushed many Australians into financial hardship and shackled future generations with a mountain of debt.
Rudd would have been more suited to the UN where he could give speeches but didn't have the power to destroy anything or the expectation to fix anything. John Winston Howard Liberal Party of Australia 11 March - December 3 Suffered from a hearing impairment in his youth which left him with a speech impediment Lived at home until he was 32 years old Attended a publicly funded state school In his younger years, wanted to restrict Asian immigration When he came to power, presided over the most open and diverse immigration intake in Australia's history Whipped up hostility against asylum seekers by manufacturing evidence they had thrown their children off a ship to improve their chances of getting into Australia.
In Afghanistan, used a photo opportunity to turn his cricket arm over. Ended up bruising his big toe Rumoured to be having an affair with the mother of a famous Australian model.
Although the rumour has proved to be very persistent, it was, by reliable accounts, not based in fact. For example, he supported unions wanting to log in Tasmania so that outraged environmentalists would shout down his support. He took a working class position on asylum seekers in the hope that criticism from intellectuals would again expose divisions in the Labor Party.
Although outrage from the left was used to his advantage, ultimately it led to Australia becoming a very polarised society. Criticism was common but productive discussion was rare. Howard stimulated a stagnating economy that had been deep in debt, engaged with Asia, saw off the threat of Pauline Hanson's One Nation, which originated under the rein of Keating, and presided over the largest and most diverse immigration intake in Australia's history.
Exploiting asylum seekers and invading Iraq were major blemishes. By the end of his term, Howard was governing for his place in the record books instead of the good of Australia or even his own party.Australian Business Solutions magazine is Australia’s premier business publication.
