It’s going to be a big night at Tilleys

So it’s official.

Julia Gillard is going to be sworn in as Prime Minister this later today.

If you’re planning to celebrate it might be worth getting on the blower to book a table at Tilleys tonight.

It’s going to get crowded.

(Also might be worth updating your details with the electoral commission)

UPDATE: In the press conference the Prime Minister designate announced she won’t move into The Lodge until she wins an election.

Pity her neighbours about to have head of government security descend on them. Also going to be interesting to see how fast the CIA and Chinese can buy up adjoining units to listen in.

What’s Your opinion?

I was confused about the Tilleys association too. I had heard it was a girls hang out (if you know what I mean) but what are we suggesting…………………?

Big night for the sisterhood. Tilleys is their bar.

What’s the Tilleys connection? I’ve not lived in Canberra very long.

Bit early to celebrate, isn’t it?

But if you are going to celebrate, surely the focus should be on the first ranga to become Australian PM.

the big question: will julia have the lodge painted pink to ram the point home?

and i love the fact that australia now has a PM who, for the first time since bob hawke, sounds stryl’n!

No, no, no, you’ve got it all wrong. She won’t paint the Lodge pink, it’ll be monkey bum red, to match her hair (as the crew at Cactus like to call it) πŸ™‚

“like, how is this canberra news, o riot act..?”

Did they move Parliament House to somewhere else?

“and i love the fact that australia now has a PM who, for the first time since bob hawke, sounds stryl’n!”

And the first in a while who when they smile looks like they mean it.

Many in the public service cheering in their cubicles right now! Perhaps no more ‘urgent’ demands for things 24/7 for them to sit in the PM’s office unactioned for weeks or months!

That’s the tilleys angle! Jeez!

+1 to what Mr Evil said.

It will be interesting to see if Gillard announces a front bench reshuffle. Almost the entire IT industry expects Senator Conroy to be replaced by local girl Kate Lundy sooner or later. Sooner being preferable.

Who cares if the new prime minister is a woman, anybody is better than Krudd! Good luck to her, but I will still vote Liberal – wouldn’t trust the Labor party with anything, they’re run by the unions and that will never change.

bd84 10:43 am 24 Jun 10

Awesome, she can create some new records as 1st woman Prime Minister and for one the shortest length of time as serving Prime Minister when we vote these douches out later in the year or early next year.

WAHOO!

Mr Evil 10:31 am 24 Jun 10

Good to see some of the usual suspects behind this coup, including the likes of Arbib and Shorten.

Shorten – famous for his 15 mins of fame in sounding indignant about worker’s safety being compromised by greedy bosses whilst he was riding on the back of publicity surrounding the rescue of two miners trapped in TAS; and for being a fairly useless junior minister for Disabilities. Would make a better circus clown than anything else.

Arbib – famous for allegedly telling PS staff not to deal with Peter Garrett about the home insulation program, but to deal directly with Arbib and Kevin – until it all went pear-shaped! I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could kick him. If it looks like a rat, it usually is a rat!

No doubt Kevin will be lumbered with all the blame for the BER stuff ups too so that Julia will look squeaky clean!

sepi 10:23 am 24 Jun 10

Go Julia!!!!!
How exciting.
I do feel sorry for Kevin (what happens to him now?).
But I am so happy for Julia, and for Australia to have finally put a woman in a position of real power and influence.
