Kevin Rudd’s 2020 ideas summit has been and gone. One weekend to brainstorm the direction for a nation. Well, it was, after all, only about producing some ideas.
It will be in the next year that action has to be taken.
Some people have labelled it as a PR stunt. However, I’m not that sceptical. Rudd has shown an open approach. Sure, there will be people who say certain groups weren’t represented. But it would be impossible to be totally inclusive.
Give ’em a go. Give ’em a year.
