Rudd Channels Belinda Neal: Tirades of Abuse at RAAF Attendent Over Food

The Daily Telegraph reports:

KEVIN Rudd reduced a young female RAAF cabin attendant to tears with a tirade of abuse because he did not get a meal he wanted during a VIP flight. The Prime Minister was forced to apologise for his behaviour, which appalled a number of senior Government officials.

An official report was filed by the flight crew about the behaviour of VIP No. 1 – Mr Rudd – after the flight from Port Moresby to Canberra in late January. Mr Rudd, who had attended the Pacific Islands Forum, was told by the 23-year-old flight attendant that h is request for a “special” meal could not be met.

Sources said the PM reacted “strongly” and a heated exchange followed. The attendant burst into tears and reported the matter to the senior cabin attendant.

She later composed herself and continued with the in-flight service.


The PM’s chief spin doctor, Lachlan Harris, initially tried to cover up the incident with a flat denial that it had even occurred.

But the report by the Commander of the VIP fleet, Group Capt Peter Wood, leaves no doubt about Mr Rudd’s behaviour.

Everyone knows Rudd has a crazy temper, is a complete s**t to his staff and everyone around him, and is a power-hungry uber-controlling egomaniac. Hmm. Still, one does question why a RAAF cabin attendant, who I’m assuming would be a member of the RAAF and not a civilian, and as such would have had military training, would have burst into tears just because Tintin’s Evil Twin shouted at her. Rather worrying indictment of our military training…
