^^^ im not at all happy about the whaling situation but i dont see how its a betrayal by rudd of the people who elected him. most aussies wouldnt have elected him for that issue alone if at all. rudds accomplished quite a bit since he got elected and has a 74% approval rating. thats only 1% behind hawke, the most popular p.m. of all time. he must be doing something right.
also, i reckon you could be being a bit politically naive to think that peter garrett is not going to have to cop out a bit as a polly. he couldnt be the same dude that was in a band all those years ago cuz it wouldnt work. they all have to cop out to an extent to get elected.
