2. As the PM, he should be open to questioning when there has been a tragedy such as this. The attitude that he showed was not one of a great leader, but one of a cowardly man, who cannot think on his feet.
3. As a previous poster pointed out, I would expect for him to at least offer his condolences, to at least show some compassion.
4. The media were not asking for the cause of the deaths, but his thoughts on the incident. If he cannot at least string a few sentences together when out in the spot, what kind of "leader" is he? One that is a puppet who's strings are pulled by other men? One who cannot think for himself, so needs his "advisors" to coach him on what to say.
Pretty poor effort for somebody who is leading this country.
Still couldn't hear it, despite a very loud volume, nor see his lips move. Let's all make a mountain out of it though
We obviously expect different things from a leader. I would rather one that doesn't seek out the media at every opportunity to say the same thing over and over, but instead one that is rushing around getting things done.
I have not seen him say anything as yet about the boats that he has turned around. I can think of a couple (or would it be 3?) of our last PM's that would be gloating in front of the media at every opportunity.
He has turned 2 boats around despite it being 'impossible', but not a word.
Good on him. The public will decide his ability based on his actions, not words.
What an @$$! Seriously. I feel I burning desire to reiterate right now. I didn't vote for him.
I watched both clips several times and honestly couldn't hear him saying that. I heard a grunt sort of noise.
I listened to it on my phone and heard it in the second one.
