The Art of the Australian Insult


Prissy pedantry

“His prissy pedantry comes out when in interviews he uses words such as extant, disparate and trajectory…a strange mix between a smarmy and unctuous vicar and a patronising and contemptuous lecturer.”

The euphoniously named Baden Eunson does not like Kevin Rudd’s style, and neither do two writers to The Australian, both of whom agree with Eunson:

“Kevin Rudd’s prevaricating diplo-babble and tedious turn of phrase might be annoying but it’s great to dance to.” Cameron Goozeff.

 

“My, he does speak a lot of ruddish. Absolute ruddish, at times.” Andrew McKay.
