Kevin Rudd continues his inexorable march around the country with the Minister for health in tow.
He's stepping up to the plate.
The great tragedy is it's the wrong plate.
Instead of going into fitness centres he's traipsing around hospitals.
You know that's bunkum.
You know that the more money spent on propping up a bloated, inefficient and expensive medical industry the more bloated, inefficient and expensive it will become, going cap in hand for more money next year.
Every year for the last 20 years the government has given this industry another couple of billion dollars. Every year it has become more bloated, inefficient and more expensive.
The first couple of billion was tragedy, the tens of billions since have been farce.
Mark my words, this industry is not going to become more efficient by throwing money at it.
The people of Australia are not going to become fitter and healthier. That's the benchmark
On the track
30 minutes on the stepper all at level 6.
A token performance.
In the meantime stay tuned and steer clear of Kevin Rudd dressed in a blue smock and hair net.
