Halfway through the campaign and with the polls pointing to a Coalition victory, Kevin Rudd is contemplating a significant change to his election strategy – talking directly to adults.

Mr Rudd, who has spent much of his Prime Ministership on classroom floors and basketball courts was initially reluctant to make the bold move. “It’s a pretty tough call dude,” he said this morning. “Some of my biggest fans are school children. But for some reason the peeps at HO don’t think hanging with kids is working”.kevin rudd satire

Opposition Treasury spokesman Joe Hockey conceded it was a clever strategic move by the Labor Party. “I haven’t got the numbers in front of me, but I’d say 60-70 per-cent, maybe even 80 per-cent of the voting public is 18 or over”.
