I’m watching as history is being made in Australia – a leadership spill will this morning install Australia’s first female Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.
Nice timing for me as I used the following slide in a presentation earlier this week – before any talk of a spill.
Interesting to see the uproar about a ‘Prime Minister we didn’t elect’. Of course, no Prime Minister is ever directly elected in Australia, however, it is true that the personality and policies of the party leader have a massive influence over how people choose to vote in an election.
I wonder what the outcome of an election tomorrow might be?
