Gillard

I cannot admit to being an expert on Australian politics but I know a pair of balls when I see them and Gillard has a pair. As I’m typing this I realise that very remark could be taken as sexist but it is not my intention, we are all grown ups here and you know what I mean with that remark. I know not whether Gillard is left, right, middle or whatever but she stood up for herself and in my opinion absolutely destroyed the leader of the opposition, she certainly wiped the smile of his face that was in place as she started to rip into him. Politics is a dirty game wherever it is played and I’m sure she has thrown a few low balls in her time (there’s that word again) but I just have to admire the way she stood up and let rip. I did not see a response from him as I had to crack on with other things and I know from reading comments in the past on here that she is not the most popular politico around, but then again which politico’s are, except perhaps the Blessed Saint Boris of Stratford, perhaps he gave as good as he got, I dont know, but strip the politics out and what are you left with? A gutsy performance which will long be remembered.

By the way, hi folks.

OMG

  1. She’s got balls alright – telling the electorate on public television that ‘There will be no carbon tax under a government that I lead,’ then cobbling together a government, flipping two fingers at the electorate and, guess what? Correct, imposing a carbon tax.

    You’re talking about the next ex-prime minister of Australia…

    What! A politician that tells lies, whatever next.

  3. PS. Mr Abbott didn’t have to say anything – he knew the media would be all over the lying erm, person…

    SMH: After sending out two attack dogs, Gutter and Sewer, to do the dirty work, after hiding behind two political zombies, Insufferable and Unspeakable, to stay in power, after using the Minister for Innuendo and the Compromise-General to play the gender card, the mask has finally dropped away to reveal the driver of the politics of hate in Australia.

    Even The Age is not impressed: ‘…What Gillard didn’t do was properly answer many new questions about her conduct in the early 1990s that were raised a few days earlier when The Australian published a partial transcript of a meeting in September 1995 between Gillard and senior partners of Slater & Gordon, a meeting that precipitated her departure from the law firm….’ Story of the sleaze here:

    etc. etc.

  4. Was she born in the UK? you describe traits on you last post that could apply to most of the incumbent trough snufflers in Westminster.

  5. When we were in OZ last year, she was always on the telly. She has a dreadful, nasal way of speaking and gives all misogynists a lot of ammunition. She is Labour, with all that implies, and a very devious politician, even for a socialist. That said, there are plenty of valid ways to attack her and her record without resorting to sexism!

    There’s a difference between having balls and being a lying, manipulative, two-faced shrew. The Juliar fits solidly in the latter category.

    Not a fan then?

  7. OMG: yes, I suppose one could infer that from what I wrote. I’m well accustomed to the Juliar’s tactics and the only thing that will come out of it is complete political breakdown.

  8. Thanks for the Hi there’s. As far as Gillard goes my point is that whatever the colour of her flag, it was a spunky performance, I’m not sticking up for her policies, how can I, no idea what they are but she did give her opponent both barrels in a way that I admire.
