Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has given an explosive interview in which he claims that Scott Morrison is “unfit for office.”
In the interview that was uploaded on Thursday, the 62-year-old was in Sydney with Youtuber Friendlyjordies, who was putting on a ‘Kevin07’ t-shirt.
Rudd argued that after the crisis in the ‘summer apocalypse’ even the most ardent right-wing commentators wonder if absolute denialism about climate change is sustainable.
“Scotty of Marketing has shown that his reaction to the fires and their cause in the long term is unsuitable for the office,” said Mr. Rudd.
Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (pictured with wife Therese) has given an explosive interview in which he claims that Scott Morrison is ‘unsuitable for the office’.
“I think that is now a deep-rooted learning method in the Australian community.”
“The political opinion poll to reflect that will bounce around a bit – but there is this deep knowledge about this man – that he is paper thin.”
Rudd said that in his opinion the Australian public looks at two things when they see a politician talking; “Do they know what they are talking about?”
And: “Do they believe what they are talking about?”
‘Now with Scotty from Marketing I am not sure if he knows what he is talking about and I have no idea what this man actually believes about climate change.

Rudd claims that the opinion of the Australian public about Morrison has changed after the bushfire crisis
“His views and beliefs are deeply rooted in Pentecostal Christianity, which is ultimately rooted in what I would describe as the gospel of health and wealth.
‘If you look at the televangelists operating in the Pentecostal land, they all have pearly white teeth and they all drive three cars at the same time. That is my calculation of his worldview. ”
After winning the 2007 federal elections, one of the first actions of the Rudd government was the signing of the Kyoto protocol on climate change policy.
After his retirement from politics after the 2013 federal elections, Mr. Rudd held a number of academic and humanitarian organizational positions.
