No need to peddle idiocy like that. Australia isn't overtly racist; its one of the best merged cultures in the world. Yes, we have a well established grievance industry, but we mostly roll our eyes and live with it.

Rudd was ousted because he sabotaged Australia's reputation as a low sovereign risk country by trying to push through an idiotic encapsulation of a mining tax. Solid idea, but the idiot pushed it as a federal tax trying to skim what has always been a state revenue base, and tried to impose on existing multi billion dollar projects. Idiot ruined a good concept by poor execution.
