Changing Leadership

So, as of today, Australia has a new Prime Minister. This is momentous news, not only because it was so sudden, but also because Julia Gillard has now become Australia’s first ever female Prime Minister.

It’s still a bit of a shock to me. This was not the result of an election, so Ms Gillard has come to office because of a shakeup of leadership within her political party. I don’t really have an opinion about this, I think it is great that a woman could become, first, deputy PM and now PM in our country, but I am reserving any further judgement until I see how things pan out over the coming weeks and months.

One thing I will say is that I don’t believe our former PM deserved the treatment he has received at the hands of his party, today, or in the days leading up to the change.

That’s all I have to say atm. I guess we will see what we see in the upcoming federal elections.

She would really like to have dragons, but has settled for chickens because they come pretty close. If you need proof of this, try offering a flock of chickens raw meat! (Meg would like to advise she accepts no liability for loss of fingers!) Meg also enjoys reading, keeping fit with her bunch of madcap mates at the local park, and spending time with her adult offspring whenever their schedules allow.
