The #CourierFail goes on the attack with biased reporting today, and when I respond with the publicly available facts, they keep up the attack by labeling my reply an "online tirade" I guess facts bother them. Most people would call it a legitimate right to self-defence in a newspaper monopoly town. Sad to see how badly the #CourierFail has trashed its own brand over the last five years or so. And its circulation reflects it.

More Murdoch Mis-reporting, led by the Brisbane Courier Fail.

The Murdoch tabloids, led by the #CourierFail in Brisbane, allege my office improperly ordered stationery to support a UN bid. Wrong again. But never let the facts get in the road of a good “…

Anne Geraghty No wonder there sales are down,and most newsagents don't stock it any more.
Christina Parnis Kevin, they are all Murdocks puppets. What else can you expect from them.
Steve Carmody Gave up reading those fish rappers 2 elections ago and haven't missed it. Good riddance.
Fatima Zohra Mr Rudd, can't you stop the evil old man Murdoch from blabbering rubbish. He does so much harm.
Helen Andrew Lol, facts and courier mail are not two things I would say together.

An honour to be with The Global Foundation in meeting with Pope Francis. He spoke to us of "cooperative globalisation" as opposed to the "globalisation of indifference."

Opportunity to sell fundamental Oz strengths to Russian PM Medvedev. Part 3 of the KR Trilogy. I promise this is the end of my "From Russia with Love" series. 😀 Even if you are sunning yourself at the beach with nothing much on your minds. 😎

The Murdoch tabloids, led by the #CourierFail in Brisbane have done their best to smear me again today. The fact is, in the most recent reporting period, the Australian taxpayers spent nearly twice as much on former Prime Minister John Howard, than they did on any other former Prime Minister. I didn't claim any telecommunications expenses. I didn't claim any family travel. The order of office stationery was explicitly approved by the Abbott and Turnbull Governments consistent with the guidelines they issued all former Prime Ministers, and it has not been used in relation to any matter concerning the Secretary Generalship of the UN.

Andrea Willson I'm more concerned about why JG is spending so much especially over the 3 years. Why did she need an almost half a million dollar office fit out?
Sammy Haris I don't get it, you guys are not even working for us anymore, or to a certain degree or whatever, former PM's i understand, massive expenditures, tax payers money, in 6 months millions and hundreds of em spent, this is outrageous, the hypocrisy of ...
Craig O'Brien Regardless of whether it was approved by the then PM or Libs... don't you think we would as taxpayers like to see the constant high life and massive entitlements simply stopped ... getting rid of gold life passes and special pensions for retiring ...
Matthew Rodger The cost of former PMs is ridiculous (yourself included). Time to reduce these entitlements and I am sure the electorate would agree.
David Guy Why don't we throw in International travel costs - see how it pans out then with just one trip for Howard and 19 for Gillard, with Rudd 2nd with 15 and that is for 2016 only

Further "thoughts of Kevin" :) if the Sunday night movies are rotten back home. On this year's G20 in Germany, Merkel must lead. I also believe if we are serious about the G20's future this year, it's got to roll back the tide of protectionism.

If you've got a spare ten mins on a quiet Saturday, and if you're thinking about the global economy this year, the following are a few reflections from yours truly yesterday at the Gaidar Forum in Moscow. The G20 in 2017 must deal with 3 core challenges: financial system risk, low global growth, and managing geo-political uncertainty.

Went driving down memory lane this afternoon with Marcus around Cooroy, Belli, Kenilworth, Obi Obi, Mapleton, Nambour, and now dinner in my old home town of Eumundi. And selfies with Chris and Joy who we ran into at the magnificent Dulong Lookout. These guys volunteered in the Kevin 07 Campaign. Now living locally. So heaps of thanks to them and all the volunteers from back then. KRudd

I first met Thérèse at the ANU - on our first (or maybe second) day. Whichever day it was, it was my lucky day. We have had an extraordinary journey together. One which is far from over. It was an honour and a privilege to witness her today getting an Honorary Doctorate of Laws at the ANU, and to hear her inspiring and incredibly moving address. This woman is an immense intellect, with an immense heart. Her message of perseverance, of caring, and of humanity is well worth taking the time to watch and listen

I asked what it means to dream and build a big Australia in an address at The Australian National University today. You can watch the whole speech here (although sorry to disappoint, but no big hat): Because I believe we can be an Australia that is big in heart, big in imagination, big in innovation and big in entrepreneurial spirit.
