Not an iPod in sight at Parliament House while Gates is there?

TeamJG is to show it’s not the actual PM doing the tweeting. Just the staffer who drew the short straw.

Ah ok that makes more sense then. When I saw it all I could think of 13 year olds and thier “Team Edward!” “Team Jacob!” Twilight crap I had to endure.

Does she seriously put “TeamJG” in every post? That’s pretty lame.

As JB said, TeamJG means it’s her staffers doing the tweet, JG means it’s Julia.

Like this one from last night, she must be a real cricket nut 🙂

Julia Gillard ?
Congrats to @sachin_rt, stepping away from @IPL on the night of a great victory for the @Mipaltan & well done to Mitch Johnson too! JG

When Bob Geldof visited Australia during the 2007 election campaign calling for a massive increase in foreign aid the Howard Government was swept from office at the election. Let’s hope Bill Gates visiting and calling for another big boost in foreign aid during this campaign has the same effect on the Gillard Government.

You know what, I think Julia was probably mid-way through writing her victory speech until she saw your post. You’re right, Bill Gates is the only thing that will stop Gillard’s hitherto unstoppable march to election success.

Just as it was all Bob Geldolf’s fault that Howard lost his job to an ex-ABC journo.

Is the PM going to break down and cry when she recalls seeing her first computer?

Gates seems to have that effect on people – I remember footage of the often gruff, and sometimes terrifying, Kerry Packer going all gushy when seated next to Gates.
