First brought to attention during the Australian election campaign by reader Bill L., Kevin Rudd’s waxmunching moment is now dealt with by the future Prime Minister himself:
No, no, no, I was scratching … All I can say is, I think my hair style was bad then and it’s bad now. But I think what you’ll find is that I’m scratching …
Scratching for an excuse. More from the UK Telegraph’s Sam Leith:
Mr Rudd’s adventures with earwax have somehow brought the Australian election campaign alive. People around the world have been brought together by this footage …
At a stroke, a microsecond nibbling earwax threatens to eclipse a lifetime of hard political graft. Is this fair? Is this reasonable? No.
Is Leith correct? No. Rudd’s earfeast, weird though it is, won’t alter many votes.
