UNtenable, UNusual, UNacceptable & UNAustralian

Was “Un” suitable for the United Nations job, now jobs for the boys continue with Rudd appointed to the plum role of US ambassador. He does not represent “US” in Australia and will be hopeless at the job after being basically UN employable for 13 years, waiting for Labour to get back in power so he can get $360,000 a year pay, $120,000 in expenses plus, plus, plus. So let’s say over $500,000 which is more than the Australian PM.

PM Anthony Albanese has appointed former PM Kevin Rudd as the next Australian ambassador to the US.

Jobs for the boys just continue regardless of the Labour party’s position to change appointments and how they are approved.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s recent choice to appoint former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd as the next Australian ambassador to the United States has raised eyebrows and stirred a wave of skepticism. This seemingly strategic move has left many questioning the motives behind such a decision, with concerns ranging from political favoritism to potential conflicts of interest.

One of the primary criticisms is the perception of political favoritism at play. Rudd, a former leader of the Australian Labor Party, now finds himself in a prominent diplomatic role, raising questions about the fairness of such appointments. Critics argue that diplomatic positions should be filled based on merit and expertise rather than political affiliations, and Albanese’s decision only fuels the perception of a political quid pro quo.

Moreover, the choice of Kevin Rudd as the ambassador to the US has stirred concerns about potential conflicts of interest. Rudd’s extensive political history, coupled with his continued involvement in international affairs after leaving office, raises questions about the objectivity and neutrality he can bring to the role. Skeptics argue that appointing a former prime minister with a strong political background might compromise the ambassadorial position, as it may be difficult for him to represent Australia without biases formed during his political career.

Critics also highlight the missed opportunity to bring fresh perspectives into diplomatic roles. With a pool of talented individuals in the diplomatic service, the decision to appoint a former prime minister may be seen as a failure to tap into new and diverse voices. This move may perpetuate a sense of political elitism and hinder the development of a more dynamic and innovative diplomatic corps.

In conclusion, while Kevin Rudd’s appointment may have its merits, the concerns raised about political favoritism, potential conflicts of interest, and the missed opportunity to inject fresh perspectives into diplomatic roles cast a shadow over Albanese’s decision. It remains to be seen how Rudd will navigate these criticisms and fulfill his role as the Australian ambassador to the United States.
