Rudd eschews ‘running commentary’ and praise

Labor Opposition leader Kevin Rudd has matched Prime Minister John Howard’s reticence on the substance of Alan Jones’ breach of the broadcasting code of conduct, but has stopped short of matching the PM’s lavish praise of Jones.

Rather, Mr Rudd has opted to give Jones a somewhat cautious thumbs-up:

In terms of future appearances (on) Alan Jones’ program, there’s nothing I’ve read at this stage that would cause me not to go on.

How very pragmatic!!

But the success of Rudd’s balancing act will, of course, only become apparent if indeed he is invited back onto Jones’ program. To that end, he might want to crank up the flattery a notch or two.
