Happy little vegemite

The leadership battle in the ALP is getting nasty.

The release of the video shows a level of low bastardry that has to be admired and aspired to. You can’t tell me that Julia Gillard didn’t have anything to do with the release of out-takes of Kevin Rudd:

KEVIN Rudd’s expletive laden outburst in the out takes of a taxpayer-funded video emerged as an internet sensation last night after it was posted on YouTube under the title “Kevin Rudd is a happy little vegemite”.

As the Prime Minister’s backers declared war on the Foreign Minister’s fitness for office, the video caused a sensation on the social networking site Twitter.

The video, which is not dated, clearly shows an exasperated Mr Rudd swearing as he repeatedly fluffs his lines

“Mate, this is just impossible. I get the very end. You can tell these dickheads in the embassy to just give me simple sentences. I’ve said this before,” Mr Rudd says.

“Tell that bloody interpreter. This f***ing language just complicates it so much, you know. How can anyone do this. It’s just..

“Tell em to cancel this meeting at 6pm …I don’t have the patience to deal with. The f***ing Chinese interpreter. Just f***ing hopeless,” he says.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
