Rudd tells his own members to "get f*cked"

KEVIN Rudd has launched another expletive-laden tirade -- this time directed at Labor's factional bosses, including three female MPs.

The outburst two weeks ago left the hardened ALP operatives shocked.

The factional leaders had gone to see the Prime Minister in his Parliament House office to object to government plans to slash MPs' printing allowances from $100,000 to $75,000 a year. The decision was in response to a report into parliamentary perks by the Auditor-General.

According to sources present, Mr Rudd said: "I don't care what you f---ers think!"

He then went on, singling out Senator David Feeney declaring, "You can get f---ed", before asking, "Don't you f---ing understand?"

This of course will do no harm, just yet anyway, to K R Puff'n'Fluff.

Somebody telling a bunch of pollies trying to defend an entitlement, (no matter how reasonably - maybe, I don't know), to piss off is only going to be seen as a legend.

But at what point does the truth sink in to people that the man they have as prime minister is not really the same person as his carefully crafted spin-ego persona as prissy little policy wonk they think they have?

At what point does the essential falseness of the man become a problem?
