“KEVIN RUDD was never going to win a caucus beauty contest.

Most Commonwealth bureaucrats also knew exactly what he was like by the time he became prime minister: demanding, obsessive, tireless and sometimes excessively perfunctory. In public service speak this means they thought he was a right bastard. They also thought he was possessed of a healthy sense of self. In public service speak this means they thought he was right up himself.”

Paul Daley in the Sun-Herald.
