Today our former Prime minister, Kevin Rudd stood down and allowed his deputy, Julia Gillard to be voted new Prime Minister by her parliamentary colleagues.
We Australians were not asked if we wanted a new Prime Minister..
A few powerful unions and a few Labour Party factions got together and decided for us... and they still call us a democracy.
Julia is our first female Prime Minister and that is being used as a pretext to help them get away with it...
Julia, is a lawyer.
Julia has worked as a lawyer for the countries unions for some time before entering politics.
Julia may well be a better Prime Minister than Kevin Rudd...
But still I would have liked the opportunity to vote for her myself.
