GOOD to see Kevin Rudd out helping the clean up effort after last week's floods in Brisbane.
But Back Paddock reckons if they're looking for a cover shot for the next issue of Chainsaw Safety Monthly best they don't use this one (right) - unless it has a big red cross over it.
No ear-muffs, no goggles or face shield, no hard hat, no fluoro vest or chaps, no steel-capped boots.
Good on you, Kev, but maybe next time stick to a hand saw and leave the machines to the experts in the SES.
Writing on the back
WHO said there was no bipartisanship in federal politics?
Gippsland Nationals MP Darren Chester (above) bent down to provide a human desktop for Julia Gillard to sign an autograph while touring fire-affected communities in Gippsland last week.
Mind you, Chester still got in a dig, telling the media pack: "The Nationals were still the backbone of regional areas."
Back Paddock wonders, though, if he would have been as chivalrous two days later when the PM announced the election?
