Kevin Rudd was visiting a primary school and he visited one of the classes who were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
The teacher asked Kevin, the saviour of 'working families', if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy'.
So Kevin (the saviour of 'working families' ) asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'.
A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field & a tractor runs over him and kills him, That would be a 'tragedy.'
No, said Kevin - that would be an accident.'
A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy'
I'm afraid not, explained Kevin - that's what we would call great loss'
The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Kevin searched the room. 'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'
Finally, at the back of the room, little Johnny raised his hand...
In a quiet voice he said: 'If A plane carrying you and Julia Gillard was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile & blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.'
'Fantastic!' exclaimed Kevin. 'That's right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?'
'Well,' says little Johnny 'it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be a fu..k'n accident either!
Gotta love that kid!

Liberal Rule on SBS tonight at 8:30, now that's a title with a ring to it
Is a forum on international students on Insight as we speak. Worth watching.
This is awesome stuff. Hopefully the government sits up and takes notice.
International students have gotta be the one of the most oppressed groups around and have been treated as cash cows for far too long.
LOL at the Tories who thought that was going to be a good pat on the back for Old Johnny.
Instead it debunked the myth that Howard and Costello were good economic managers. Next week he'll be exposed as racist.
3 hours of emotion over facts most of the time coming up, one would imagine.
most debates on Australian television are unbearable, we seem to assume that people only get 1 minute to make a point and then bad luck. Q and A in London was 100x better as they allow people to talk in England, an amazing thought, similar to most of their shows. Although who would want to listen to their politicians It was also interesting that their guests were aloud to speak their minds on issues in a much less dogmatic way, or maybe that's just how they work in Britain.
