And that’s the way a bickie crumbles

TWO things to remember as we recap a Twitter exchange between Hunter MP Joel Fitzgibbon and former PM Kevin Rudd.

Mr Fitzgibbon didn’t back Mr Rudd in the leadership challenge and no-one likes a jibe about their weight.

‘‘I reluctantly agreed (with support from Abby the Wonderdog) to sample all 11 biscuits before reaching judgment. KRudd,’’ Mr Rudd tweeted to more than a million followers on Anzac Day. Abby’s his golden retriever.

‘‘@KRuddMP brisk 5k walk in the morning required now,’’ Mr Fitzgibbon tweeted back.

It can be hard to convey tone in 140 characters, but we think Mr Rudd succeeded.

‘‘No need Joel. KRudd,’’ he replied. We quizzed Mr Fitzgibbon about it, and he laughed.

‘‘It was just about biscuits,’’ he said.
