New PM julia Gillard and her new Deputy Wayne Swan

Well a lot of Aussies woke up in disbelief this morning, they went to bed last night with Kevin Rudd as PM and woke to Julia Gillard as PM, the very first female PM in Australia’s history.

This is a blog about Aussie Criminals and Crooks, but as this has been a significant event in our history I find it worthy of commenting on. Lets she what she does different guys!

    So they wanted a female PM and the worst thing about this redhead gillard is she’s a pom, how backward this country has become. ETS and the mining tax had nothing to do with this crap even though Rudd was more of a Dudd towards the end of his term,the intentions were to help all Australians, i still want my vote back. What a publicity stunt to get Australias first female PM. This is a joke!!!!

    Disgusted with Australian Politics. of DROUIN WEST Posted at 11:16 AM Today

    GOES TO SHOW HOW POWERFUL OUR UNIONS ARE. Today we have witnessed that the unions do control Politics, they didn’t want the mines tax and see what has happened as a result. I feel sorry for Kevin Rudd and any other Politician that has the balls to stand up against them. Goes to show this is not a Democratic Country with the freedom to speach.

    Julia Gillard should be ashamed!!! What she did was stab K Rudd in the back which is UNAUSTRALIAN and something our country doesnt stand for. Seems hypocritical to me…we voted Kevin Rudd as PM and NOT Julia Gillard…and what happened to the publics opinion? Does it not count…Its outrageous and unacceptable that our goverment make such serious decisions on their own! Labor has lost my vote and WONT be getting it back!! Not happy Jan…

    The Labor Party is a vicious, backstabbing, faction riddled entity. Remember the political assassination of Bob Hawke – after winning an election, he was knifed in the back and replaced by Paul Keating. Rudd’s political assassination is just run of the mill Labor Party behaviour, they’re displaying their true colours yet again. As for the lies, the cheating and the “black is white” approach, they have exceeded even my worst expectations! Despite all the propaganda, the Liberals, however, repeatedly demonstrate they’ll put their party first and have a standard of integrity this lot have manifestly demonstrated they do not have!

    Gilliard is a left wing socialist who with Rudd,Tanner and Swan, was instrumental in the Insulation debacle, the BEC joke, the Mining Tax attempted ripoff and the ETS backflip. They are all responsible for the sick state we are in. We now have the Unions running Australia. Look out!!

    So the Doggies have a new full forward? Does this mean Australia is also now in the space race to Mars? And will she play a love interest or villian in the lastest Brad Pitt movie?

    Costello, where are you man. You would win in a heartbeat. Then again, he probably gets paid 5 times more than that so what’s the point.

    A lot of these comments sound familiar only with different names eh Johnny. What satisfies Australians?

    Jeff Albertson Posted at 11:19 AM Today

    People if we are going to comment lets get the spelling right. It is LABOR not labour. Although having to stare at/listen to either Kevin or Julia is like doing 45 hours straight of hard manual LABOUR they are part of the LABOR part

    How dare she accuse the opposition leader of lying, when she herself stabbed her leader in the back, after denying only a week ago that she would be interested in leading the party. It will just be more of the same, with the new “chosen” leader at the helm.

    JW get a proof reader and Deb of Newport why would Julia being PM help Victoria? Rudd was from Queensland and he didn`t help us.

    Rudd, Gillard – is there another choice?

    Dan of Geelong Posted at 11:20 AM Today

    So it seems the “working families” who voted for Rudd don’t get a say this time round, apparently we’re not required to pick our PM. Last 2 times in office, 2 leadership changes. A vote for labour is a vote for WHO?????

    ‘A change will not make any difference. This Govt. is so politically dumb.’ Comment 11. It’s true. Fancy expecting the electorate to sign up to anything requiring imagination and courage. It seems that the Libs track record of doing nothing has great appeal to many here. Who remember the good old days when the born to rule did. And who of course forsaw the GFC, had better solutions and know all. Makes you wonder what they’re doing here…………..

    People forget, a lot of the current mess is Julia’s doing (school programs etc) They’ve simply put a pretty face on the same problem.. Bring on the election..

    Hmm, unelected leaders in both Victoria and in Canberra, and also in NSw………… Is this a pttern?

    A red-headed Communist…what more could you want? A few years ago Julia’s job was to help former members of the collapsed Communist Party of Australia to join the ranks of the Labor Party. Labor must be KICKED OUT at the forthcoming election.

    So we now have both a state leader and a national leader which no Australian has actually voted for. what a joke

    Rachel Posted at 11:22 AM Today

    Julia Gillard What A Joke! what has she promised us? how can the labour party vote on behalf of Australia we should get the choice? and kevin rudd may not have done such a great job but let us vote for ourselfs?

    Comment 925 of 928
    Nick Jones Posted at 11:23 AM Today

    At least the Labour party has the guts to change leaders, not like the Liberals where Costello was a wimp and never challenged Howard. Give Gillard a chance, she may do well.

    I thought Gillard said she had more chance of being the Full Forward of the Western Bulldogs than her becoming the next Prime Minister.

    What a balls up. Back stabber. All of a sudden Rudd wasn’t so bad after all.

    Comment 928 of 928

  2. I don’t think the issue is who has taken over from who. The point is that the current PM of Australia was not elected by the people. In a democratic society this should not be allowed to happen. If the PM stands down there should be an immediate election. But lets be honest voting is always about choosing the best of a bad bunch. It’s rude to make voting compulsory when the only real options are Gillard/Abbott. What a disaster either way!

    • I have to agree about voting, we should not be made to vote, they should be trying to win our vote, but as you ended with, does it matter in the end, we wend up in the same blame game and so it goes around again!

  3. Good on you Julia! I think she has more tenasity and gumption than most of all the other pollie’s put together.

    Watched the debate on Sunday night. She absolutely run rings around Tony Abbot. !!! Only good things to come.
