Gestation: 38 weeks, 6 days
One year ago.
We bump into the smiley man from Queensland later that day.
“Did you hear about Kevin Rudd?”
“Ousted by his own party. A political coup. Blindsided. The quickest prime ministerial demise in the history of Australian politics.”
“What a shame,” I say, sarcastically, “after every thing he did for the health care of this nation.”
“Apparently that’s the reform of which he’s most proud. Helping to improve the system for all.”
Not fucking IVF.
It’s exactly that sort of blinkered thinking that got him ousted. Pissing off people without even realising.
