Go Gillard grrlll

Give me a J
Give me a U
Give me an L
Give me an I
Give me an A

I hope she gets up.
I hope her health is robust.
I hope I am wrong in my fear that Australia is not ready to be led by a woman.

I know she is capable and courageous.

Sorry Suki, it's not that Australia is not ready for a woman as PM, but Julia (and Rudd)are such relative newbies to the game that I don't think they'll get the nod.

Beazley has taken the Labor party to two many defeats.

The political sphere will not engage the voters with Beazley again.

This has to be seen like a sit-com. It's time to bring in a new, fresh, storyline or the voters will vote with their apathy and indifference.

Heading up with Beazley runs on the hypothesis that voters would have voted for Labor, but did not want Latham as PM. While we heard about his unpopularity, there is not enough data to suggest that, but for Latham, Labor would have made Government.

The safe Beazley option smacks of defeat somehow. It offers up some
"if we put up an inoffensive leader and wait for the Liberal/Coalition to fuck up we will win"

NO NO and NO.
We deserve Policy.
We deserve a leader who leads….
Don't give us a Bradbury victory.
That’s ok for a gold medal, but not ok for Australia’s political future.

We will not know in this term whether a woman could have been Prime Minister of Australia.
We do know however, that Kim will lead the ALP to the 2007 election.
J U L I A is not contesting the leadership.

Happy Invasion Day.
