Conservative ABC TV

How very odd. As I drove home from work I was listening to an ABC news special and it was unofficially called that we have a new Prime Minister at about 7.20pm.

Now I am watching the ABC 7.30 and at 7.52 no-one is calling it. 7.53 and it has been officially announced.

Make sure you have your speakers on when listening to this. What else can you do in such situations but indulge in a laugh.

  1. I am going to go and top myself, so tragic is the news :(

    Whatever people felt about the PM, she was the first woman PM EVER since Australian federated on 1/1/1901. What a disgrace that women had to wait for so long.. And what an even worse disgrace that the men sabotaged her every year as party leader. Shame, Rudd, shame.

    1. Hels, women are 51% of the population. They should have more numbers in parliament, but then someone has to do the real work on the home front.

  2. I've never been a fan of Julia from afar (her voice drives me insane - like a fork being dragged over my teeth).
    But all this infighting is a little unsavoury and banana republic, isn't it and I feel a bit sorry for her.
    Rudd doesn't float my boat either. He comes over (here at least) as a bit of an old school bully. I might be way off the mark but that's my sense.

    1. Craig, imagine what it is like for us having to hear her speak to the world. I think your judgement is sound, but just wait for the next PM.

  3. Despite her voice I much prefer her to Rudd. She seemed to have such a battle on her hands and that was within her own party. Anyway she can't be all bad. I heard she is knitting a kangaroo for the latest heir to the throne.

    1. Fun60, as she is a republican, she was pilloried for that too. I don't see the connection between knitting a kanga for the about to be born and being a republican. I am not a conservative voter, but I can still be friends with them.

  4. Memories can be short, it won't be long before Rudd's halo (such that there is one at all) dissipates. Driving home from bridge last night I heard his 'victory' speech and it was chalk squeaking on the blackboard time again.

    1. Victor, it was either going to be Julia or Kev who was going to be the sacrificial lamb. Kev stepping up to the crease is perhaps the kindest thing he has done.
