Sure, respect the office of PM (after Julia’s gone)
So there’s been this and that in the media lately about the, er, heckling of Julia Gillard.
Keep it civil and all that, ra ra ra, so they say.
Here’s the deal: The Office of PM has never really been that respected in Australia (it’s true, Bolta). After all, this is Australia. And good grief, Julia Gillard couldn’t have done a better job of getting that Office more despised than if she tried.
She tried hard.
It is truly difficult not to despise that woman who has done so much damage to Australia, not to mention her cabal that has done so much damage to the truly great powerful women in our country. Talking about the Gina Rineharts and the Julie Bishops. (TBH, talking about people like my mum, too.)
With any luck, this post will be irrelevant by Monday, what, with all those rumours of her (finally [too little, too late]) being dumped.
And perhaps those in the media who attempt to instill respect in our political leaders, perhaps they could acknowledge that it has become so vile towards Gillard for damn good reason.
(At least the DT has the right idea).
