Inspiring News

I have read the most inspiring and awesome piece of news today.

No, it’s not about the dissolution of parliament announcement by the PM this afternoon.

Today the Prime Minister of Australia apologized in a speech in Parliament to the Aborigines.

Read it and look at the photographs. Tell me you weren’t moved.

Kevid Rudd Says Sorry

What foresight to see what his nation needs. What courage to do something so difficult. What a wonderful example of keeping his pre-election promises. What hope his words bring.

What an excellent example to the rest of the world on dealing with issues. Mature and first class all the way.

This is the kind of person I want for my prime minister. Those who falls asleep on the job or flip flop around will never get my vote.

Can I vote for Kevin Rudd or not?

  1. It is really nice of him – but I’m rather cynical…

    Adino: How come? I’m not that familiar with Australian politics, perhaps you know some hidden agenda behind this?

  2. “This is the kind of person I want for my prime minister. Those who falls asleep on the job or flip flop around will never get my vote.”

    So you will abstain from voting in this coming election?

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Adino: I won’t abstain from voting. But I will use my vote properly (even if it won’t seem to make any difference).

    Happy Valentine’s day to you too ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. i want a PM who don tell lies~
    i want a PM who can make us as Malaysian proud..
    i want a PM who can speak good english and NOT bahasa..
    i want a PM who will stand out when there’s a big hoo-haa in the country and not hiding in his DUMB office..

    Adino: According to the newspapers and government controlled media, this is the kind of prime minister we already have. Don’t say he is hiding in his office la, he said that he works ‘bloody hard’, so we shouldn’t dare to say that he doesn’t work.

    Just vote for his party again la, so he can have another 5 years ‘mandate’. You know, I don’t see any other countries government saying they have a mandate. Sounds so… emperor-ish!

  4. ‘right’…according to the newspaper and media controlled by gov…
    they cant simply write or say something bad ma…
    work hard??
    ‘playing’ hard??
    tat makes me wonder…

    Adino: Yeah, bloggers are all liars mah ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hmm… I know where my vote will go this coming election. Hehehe.

    As far as apologies go, when have you ever seen a Malaysian minister apologizing in public? Lawl.

    Adino: Never seen that happen. But I’ve seen a lot of blame-shifting!

  6. There are some follow-up articles that say the Australian government won’t make any compensations for the Aborigines. I heard this later on.

    Adino: Ahh… I see.
