So much for reconciliation.
Guess who joined the pack-attack on Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson during his own speech of sorry during this day of “healing”?
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd confirmed in Question Time that his press secretary, Lachlan Harris, and his deputy turned their backs on the giant screen erected at Parliament House when Nelson spoke, which doubtless helped to whip up the happy hate of the crowd.
A disgusting politicisation of an already divisive and politicised event. Rudd said he’s “counselled” his staffers, who will say their own sorry to Nelson.
From some of the response I’ve received, too, it seems an odd fact that those keenest on this “reconciliation” seem quite prone to hatred and abuse.
