Historic day for Bogans and fishwives
Australian Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard has in some quarters been dismissed — somewhat unfairly, in my view — as “the Bogan Fishwife”.
Well, they said she’d never make it...
Acting Prime Minister Julia Gillard may be making political history today, but the first woman to lead the country since federation says it will be “business as usual”.
Ms Gillard will assume prime ministerial duties over the next two days while Prime Minister Kevin Rudd attends the climate change conference in Bali.
