Julia Gillard, Prime Minister

I really hope the timing of this doesn't prove to be a mistake. But aside from that...


Wow, how awesome is this? We have our first female Prime Minister. Congratulations Julia, now, don't stuff it up.

And she's actually left-wing as well...
But with the majority of her power base within the Labor party coming from the right faction it will be interesting to see how that comes into play.

on a totally unrelated aside.. her nose is very pointy.

Interesting times. But I've gotta say we Kiwis bet you to it many years ago!

I was excited that we got a woman, but can't say that I'm enthralled by someone who gives an example of a strongly held conviction, pushing ahead with the 'myschool' website... Not that the opposition was offering anything better... Tony did have convictions which I strongly disagreed with (WorkChoices was good, climate change was a myth) but he seems to have forgotten them pretty quickly...
