Julia Gillard. You rock.

Ok, I know many of you have probably seen it, but just in case...surely one of the best parliamentary speeches of recent years. Perhaps not a naturally gifted speaker, but with the passion of righteous rage, the Australian Labor Prime Minister brilliantly takes down the obnoxious Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, with a deadly attack on his barely-disguised sexism. My favourite:
If he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia he doesn't need a motion in the house of Representatives. He needs a mirror.
Respect.

  1. It's an embarrassment for backward center-right parties like Tony Abbot's Liberal-National coalition to make such unacceptable comments.

    On a brighter note, you've inspired me to write a piece about Australian politics on my blog.
