Kevin Rudd’s one-time senior adviser on mental health says the former prime minister was removed from the top job for his “own wellbeing”.
This is from a report in regard to John Mendoza, one of Australia’s leading experts on mental illness and former Chief Executive of the Mental Health Council, who had resigned as Rudd’s mental health advisor, at least according to reports now found at Andrew Bolt. Mendoza apparently also said that Rudd was “not fit for office”.
Unlike Caligula, say, Rudd was not dispatched by some modern version of the Praetorian Guard. He was instead made the Foreign Minister, showing what a kind, caring society Australia has now become.
