The Change at the Top

How quickly things move, Kevin Rudd steps down while Julia Gillard steps up and there’s a change of leadership. Krudd was saying how he’d been elected by the Australian people. What twaddle, the only way you get to be PM is for your party to vote you there. It has nothing to do with the rest of the nation, because if it did Krudd would still be in power.

There’s only reason why the Labor Party has changed leaders, it’s because they want to stay in power, and they reckon that Krudd was a liability, Gillard is their best chance at clinging on to the reigns of power.

And… she’s a woman, so history is being made. Our first female prime minister. It’s a pity she gets there in this way and not by election by the people, but we’ll see.

So, our Head of State is the Queen, her representative in Australia, The Governor General, she’s a woman and now our Prime Minister is an unmarried atheist who’s also a woman! She’s in a relationship with a hairdresser, a man.

The change at the top is quick and ruthless, there has been no blood shed and no battles on the street, the army has not been called out and the police are not in riot gear. The action of government means the rest of us can get on with our lives. That’s something to be happy about.
