That one is still available on youtube.
Remember that Young Ones episode. Rik says '...and that's about as disgusting as eating your own ear wax. Right kids?'
Seriously though, given the timing, you'd have to suspect this is a strategic leak.
Which just makes me think I'd like the ALP to decamp from Canberra, go to Central Australia somewhere - every one of them, from the lowliest shop steward to icons (Gough, Hawkey) - and just argue themselves horse until they actually agree on something they stand for. Then they can come back and actually run the country with a vague semblance of vision. On the way out there they could find a sewer to dump Craig Thomson in - his natural habitat.
The only problem is, while they're away, the Coalition would have to run things. They'd pass laws legalising corporate labour camps, privatise oxygen so public respiration would hence-forth be subject to a fee (payable by credit card, money order, direct blood donation) and up the medicare rebate so steeply that anyone earning over two hundred thou would automatically be entitled to a 'happy ending' massage from anyone, anywhere, any time, provided they were in a lower tax bracket. The master/serf feudalist model worked perfectly well for at least 8 centuries - as they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
The ALP right royally f*#ked themselves in the foot when they knifed Rudd. He may have been a megalomaniac, egghead knob-end but when was the last time a first term incumbent lost an election in Australia? His real problem is that he wasn't factionally aligned.
His removal was p*%sweak student politics. And we'll all pay for it with another decade of Tory rule.
