KEVIN RUDD: Alex, I was very close to my Mum. She brought me up from the age of 11, she died the day before the election, she was buried a few days before.No, that quote is not taken out of context. You can read the whole thing if you want. Quentin George, the genius who stumbled upon this, says:
Either the incompetent ABC stuffed up a radio transcript, or Rudd just admitted to burying his mother alive....I'll go with Rudd burying his mother alive, as a simple listen to the audio file shows it's no mistake on the ABC's part.
