Meet Julia Gillard Prime Minster Of Australia
PA Pundits International ^ | 23 June 2010 | TonyfromOz

Julia Gillard has become the first woman to hold the Office of Prime Minister of Australia. She takes over as leader of the Federal Labor Party. This was a serious thing for the Party to do, so close as it is to a Federal Election, due within months. In dumping their former leader Kevin Rudd, the Party has done something never before done in Australia's history, to dump a First term Prime Minister. In the end, Julia Gillard was elected unopposed.

Federal Labor Party? Lefty? Is it left down under, or is it right? I know it's winter.

By our US standards she could well be a conservative.

She’s too attractive to be a(n)(American) libtard.

Labor Party as in the UK, largely an organ of the trade unions and socialist left. I believe the opposition are the Liberals, which quaintly enough use the word for their name which used to and still should be synonymous with modern Conservatism. In other words, the Aussies haven’t buggered up the language half as much as the press and democrats have here in America.

Wikipedia:
""Gillard was also formerly the secretary of the left-wing organisation, Socialist Forum...

She was responsible for drafting the affirmative action rules within the Labor Party in Victoria, setting the target of women being preselected in 35 percent of winnable seats within a decade. She also played a role in the foundation of EMILY's List, the fund-raising and support network for Labor women.""
