Let Kevin Rudd Travel the World
There have been some ridiculous rumblings within Australia about Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's international visits, and his soon to be trip to the United States. The only discontent I have noticed is that of Liberal party politicians and the Australian media attempting to spin an angle on a story. Australian's are not inward looking people, we are citizens of the world. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's job is to represent Australia to the world, especially in times of war and global economic uncertainty. Australia is not a one man government, and we are well served by ministers and the thousands of government stakeholders that are hopefully performing their job for the good of Australia. I can safely assume that no other country in the world whines about their leader representing them to the world, and Australia should be no different.
