What should Rudd do in his first 100 days?
The federal election is over. It's an historic result. So where to now?
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has previously made it clear that he - unlike his Labor predecessors - will choose his own Cabinet team.
Who should get what portfolio?
Fill the Cabinet with Scientists of all kind, and on merits, and not Politicians !
Stop being an age fascist from day one and in the future of your period.
Do what you once learned in Sweden; Make as law the new parliament - and your Cabinet - entirely democratic with 50/50 % men and woman, on merits of course.
Respect the majority of the 22 million australian citzens who are from non-english speaking background and let people with different accents enter your cabinet and the most important chairs in the federal administration around the entire nation, for the very first time.
After that, it is time for you to elect and appoint the First President of The Australian United States, making a brand new constitution; A clean and pure Democracy or Republic. (I don't think you need the support from Turnbull to establish that).
Make a new Citizen Pledge/Oath for new citizens: "Towards the First Australians" The Indignious People of Australia.
Reserve 1 billion dollar to help all the 650.000 buggers in the dental cue.
8. Emerge SBS and ABC television and make the same terms for journalist as for the elected politicians to maximum 3 or 6 years in office and not letting editorial staff stay there for a lifetime, and amalgamate all the Australian States.
Visit all worldleaders as often you can, no matter if it is unpleasant or not and solve problems upfront and in peace.
Why not a New Rug - the Flag is obsolete, even the Queen would say.
