Ute-gate (GNW 23/11/09: 12 Months in 7 Seconds)

And we were amazed at the political judgement & cunning of Malcolm Turnbull, who took a nothing story about Kevin Rudd’s old rust-bucket & turned it into… Ute-gate!  Unfortunately Malcolm didn’t know quite enough about utes and got walloped by Tail-gate.

And we were amazed at the political judgement & cunning of Malcolm Turnbull, who took a nothing story about Kevin Rudd’s old rust-bucket & turned it into… Ute-gate!  While Malcolm himself remains a nothing old rust-bucket.

The Ute-gate affair proved that our Prime Minister may be an ineffectual, arrogant, abusive bureaucrat, but at least his ute is legitimate.

Big Mal managed to ensure the first knife that went into his back was self-inflicted by believing Treasury official Godwin Grech, who’d faked an email from Rudd’s office.  Turnbull was also disappointed when that billion dollars from Nigeria never eventuated.

The Liberals said it was the most convincing fake email since that one about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.
