Sorry Kevin, but Malcolm Turnbull is right.

You are a disreputable scumbag with an outsize ego, anger management problems and personality defects. You are not suitable to be Australia's nomination for the UN.
Also, your party is having a laugh if they think someone who they have determined is not suitable to be PM or party leader is suited to run the UN.

But it was revealed that the party room did vote for his nomination. Even Bishop was a supporter.

The whole thing was shut down by Turnbull with a captains call.

Do a research noob.

It was the right decision, that's why he's PM.

I'd say it didn't matter what Turnbull's decision was, Rudd had a snowball's chance in Hell of coming anywhere near the Secretary General position. Turnbull had to weigh the diplomacy of giving an empty gesture of bipartisanship or the need to placate his rabid right wing. A lose-lose situation for him really. While Turnbull may have made the right decision it does indicate a serious divide in the Coalition, especially if Cabinet was actually in favour of giving Rudd's ego a bit of a massaging.

At least the right wing media will take its hackles down but Rudd now has an awful lot of time on his hands and is petty enough to try and make trouble for the PM. Hell hath no fury like a Kevin scorned.

The Australian nomination for UN Sec Gen should not have been about internal party politics, it should have been about putting up a suitable candidate or no-one.

No-one beat Kevin Rudd, bad luck for him.

Another reason why he wasn't suitable.

You have enough experience with Australian politics to know that everything is about internal party politics.

Which still doesn't make it right.

Honestly, punting a maniac like Rudd onto the UN to settle some internal score would have been pathetic.

He wouldn't have got the job even if Turnbull backed him.

Also, despite Rudd's rampaging narcissism and legendary difficulty to work with, he is more than qualified for the role. The Coalition, Newscorp and talkback radio have portrayed him as a malfunctioning firework of a PM but he actually had a lot of success and during an incredibly difficult economic situation too. Australia would rate Rudd a lot higher if they had an understanding of how, say, Tony Abbott would have fared during the GFC and what Rudd managed to avoid.

Then we might as well have put up Pauline Hanson if she wasn't going to get the job. It might have kept her out of causing trouble in the senate for a little while. Would that have been a responsible thing to do?

Its impossible to discuss these hypotheticals. - would Abbott have been better during the GFC than Rudd? Who can say.

Australia is/was a completely different country, very different financial structure and insulated for that period by the tail-end of the mining boom.
The GFC might as well have been on Mars, Rudd's unproductive borrow-spend program may or may not have been the reason we were relatively unscathed, I don't believe it personally.

New Zealand likes to think it's Australia's Canada but it pretty much is Australia's Mexico.

"When New Zealand sends its people, they’re not sending their best... They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us [sic]. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, can play footy okay I guess.”
