What was definitely unscripted this morning was the story in the Age that the PM personally intervened to prevent the appointment of the departmentally recommended Hugh Borrowman as Ambassador to Germany. According to the yarn, "insiders blame the decision on a murky personal history shared between the Prime Minister and Mr Borrowman, who have known each other since attending Australian National University. Mr Borrowman is said to have dissented from the often arbitrary decision-making process taken by Mr Rudd since coming to office."
