Everyone Loves Julia Says The Canberra Times!

By johnboy - 29 June 2010 29

The Canberra Times is very enthusiastic about Julia Gillard’s visit to a Quangers shopping centre to kiss babies and spread the pixie dust of recent celebrity.

According to Ross Peake and Danielle Cronin dyed in the wool Liberals voters were pledging undying loyalty to our new ginger over-lord.

Oddly enough no mention at all of the angry tobacconist so upset by the recent excise rises (an under-reported contributor to the collapse of Kevin Rudd’s popular support along with the alco-pop taxes) that he had to be removed, and no mention of the National’s candidate for Eden Monaro David Gazzard sneaking in for a sneaky grip and greet on camera.

Nahh, let’s stick to sunshine and lollypops.

What’s Your opinion?

Thumper: Well, if you want to get to know Andrew Leigh, the Fraser candidate, there’s always the option of reading his six years of blog posts, or his academic research, op-eds and radio spots… 😉

(Quite a bit more insight than we usually get with a new candidate, you must admit).

Um, PB, why the anti-Welsh rants? You married to one or sump’n?

Whe you have had as much to do with the Welsh as I have, then you’ll understand…

Until then, be wary of Fanta Pants bearing gifts…….

On what grounds have you formed that opinion?

Gut feeling. Instinct. I have nothing to back it up, honestly.

I don’t know Julia at a personal level, but her “grub” statement against Abbot is the highlight of what I know her by.

Witty, yes, but I hope she doesn’t turn into Mark Latham II.

Persons that are liked by the majority (of our nation) is not necessarily the same person one would prefer as the leader of a country, to fight for our interest on the world stage.

I think Julia is tough, smart, realistic, a great speaker and a fantastic representative for Australia on the world stage.

I just hope she doesn’t get sucked into right wing policies on asylum seekers etc in order to appear as tough as Tony Abbot…

…Julia seems popular local, but can she command the world stage? She’s a nice girl, but I’m not sure if she’s got the iron in her to match Thatcher (UK) and Clark (NZ)? I hope she’s not just a puppet, like Keneally…

Rein in your… past angst against Julia’s forefathers!

Australia may have been called “New South WALES” in history, but I do not think it is warranted at this point in time!

I would respect/hope Julia to bring to fruition the value of all Australian people, and not just the value of her ancestors. Your quotations are the nightmares from the past that should not befall on the children of our future!

I don’t think there is too much to worry about. She follows AFL and isn’t a member of the Church of Seventh Day Repressionists http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wacky_Wales

The land of my fathers, and my fathers can have it

and one could add that Roger De Montgomery, half brother of William the Conquerer, built a rather large castle on the Welsh/ English border in about 1070 specifically to keep the Welsh out.

Everyone in Canberra loves Julia, that’s for sure.

And to prove it watch as the good folk vote in two new and completely unknown local members to take over from Ellis and McMullan in the soon to be conducted federal election.

Admittedly, the Lib candidate will also be unknown and therefore utterly irrelevant.

And one must admit, she’s a hell of an improvement over the previous incumbent.

She must have iron in her…she’s going rusty already….

Boo hoo to the cancer peddler. Were other drug dealers protesting police activity against them?

And Jivrashia, you think this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5jtiJPlv4Y weasel “commanded the world stage”? Give me a politician with a shred of honesty any day.

I don’t know much about Gillard, but her sanity with regard to sustainable population has got my attention already. All the other pollys seem to think exponential growth is fool proof.

There’s lollipops? Hurray for our ginger overlord!!!

Nom nom nom nom nom…

Everyone loves a change, penning their hope for something better. It’s human nature. But, for better or for WORSE is the risk that seems to slip past a lot of people.

In hind sight I’m having second thoughts on whether removing Johnny was a good idea. I guess we’ll never know. Julia seems popular local, but can she command the world stage? She’s a nice girl, but I’m not sure if she’s got the iron in her to match Thatcher (UK) and Clark (NZ)? I hope she’s not just a puppet, like Keneally.

Oddly enough no mention at all of the angry tobacconist so upset by the recent excise rises (an under-reported contributor to the collapse of Kevin Rudd’s popular support along with the alco-pop taxes) that he had to be removed

Since you raised that issue, JB, I have to gloat that I’ve quit smoking in protest of the excise hike. 🙂 Thank you Mr Rudd.
