And the winner is…

Julia Gillard!


Yes folks, Australia now has a Government after weeks of suspense (??), watching the Independents make up their minds.

It is my preferred outcome; I did vote for Labor after all. And Julia Gillard, now Prime Minister for real, is a refreshing change from the god botherers of the past. Besides living in sin, and being childless, she is also an atheist. What more could you ask of a Prime Minister!

However, she won’t have an easy time of it, bedding down as she must with a group of very independent Independents and a hostile Opposition. Challenging I’d say. Let’s hope she’s up to it and manages to go full term.

It will interesting to see what unfolds in the coming weeks, months and years.
