  • It's also downloading mail supposedly long since deleted from the server by my desktop Outlook. #
  • @drng Thanks – solved now. Recently upgraded & Outlook was still set to save a copy on the server. So obvious that of course I missed it… #
  • @Nyx2701 Thanks – I'll look at that app. My problem was a setting in Outlook on my desktop. #

  • But the payment froze on Paypal's site… #nytpaywall #
  • RT @TurnbullMalcolm: @KRuddMP c'mon Kevin don't hold back. Self-interrogation has always been a forte of yours! #
  • Take away the entertainers, the columnists and other assorted polemicists, and #QandA can be interesting and thoughtful. #
  • Rudd on abandoning the ETS in 2010: "I think my judgement on that was wrong." #qanda #
  • So why did you do it, asks Jones. Rudd: If you want me to go into the entrails it won't be a pretty story… #qanda #
  • Were you driven in this direction by others? Rudd: I don't think it's a secret that there were divisions of opinion in the party… #qanda #
  • Rudd: On balance it was the wrong call – we should have just sailed straight ahead. #qanda #
  • Jones asks Rudd if Gillard and Swan wanted to get rid of it altogether. Rudd: There was a division of opinion… #qanda #
  • Rudd says he was "uniquely responsible"… Jones pursues him on whether members of the Cabinet wanted to dispose of the ETS completely. #
  • Rudd: There are some who wanted to junk it, some who wanted to sail straight ahead, even though we didn't control the Senate. #qanda #
  • Now there's a perfect question from the audience. #qanda #
  • Will you rule out making another tilt for the leadership, Rudd is asked. He talks about making a difference in foreign affairs. #qanda #
  • Robert Manne: You gambled on Turnbull and you got Abbott. Rudd: And I'm responsible for that?! Give me a bloody break. #qanda #
  • Rudd: The error I made was delaying this thing for 2 years… the error of the delay was seen by the public as an abandonment of the policy. #
  • Julie Bishop: The mistake Kevin Rudd made was trusting Julia Gillard. [Audience applause] #qanda #
  • Rudd: Everything we say on these subjects is not reported. 1% of what we say is reported. #qanda #
  • Rudd on factional thugs in the ALP Caucus: "It's an interesting and diverse caucus." #qanda #
  • You have to admit, whatever his myriad faults, Rudd sure does show up the rank amateurism of a Gillard TV appearance. #qanda #
  • Rudd: Jeff Kennett gave me advice I didn't properly listen to… find yourself time to think, reflect and plan. #qanda #
  • What about the tide of other people's ambitions? Rudd: I might in the future be less trusting… but it's a tough terrain. #qanda #
  • Now, what can Bob Brown possibly say on #Lateline that could trump Kevin Rudd on #qanda #
  • Audio of the pertinent bits of Kevin Rudd's appearance on #QandA have been posted here: http://auspol.info/if23MV #
