|A few of the Rudds' favorite things - your money|
Baby sitting is not really very complex thing. It basically involves changing
the occasional nappy, introducing the children to the delights of late night
horror movies, and then pretending they were in bed at 8:30, while helping
yourself to the contents of your host's liquor cabinet.
Seriously, a child could to it. And in fact children do. The majority of 14
year-olds seem to do it to earn a few dollars an hour to top up their phone
cards so they can flirt via SMS.
But not in the Rudd household. In the Rudd household, the 14 year-old son needs
a baby sitter of his own. Huh?
Whether 14 year old Marcus is still breast fed hasn't actually been made clear,
and nor should it be. It's really none of our business what goes on behind
other people's closed doors and it really shouldn't concern us.
Except of course if we are forced to pay for it.
Yes gentle reader, the baby sitter was being paid for by you - the tax payer.
While the rest of us have to pay for our own babysitters, the multi-millionaire
Rudds put their baby-sitter on the staff payroll for The Lodge, and the
tax-payer was expected to foot the bill.
This is Uncle Kev's idea of implementing spending cuts, and sticking up for the
working class. 'Onya, Kev!
But we shouldn't be too quick to label the man a hypocrite. After all, Kevin
Rudd has always been a big proponent of the Nanny State. It's good to see that
he inflicts it on his own children.
Even the true believers might need a spoon full of sugar to swallow this little
