Ms Gillard is an elected Head of Government. That trumps a German-posing-as-a-Pom who occupies her position only through inheritance. The Queen should have curtsied to her!
What an utterly stupid comment posted here by labor party supporter 'Becky'. Gillard is a rotten fkn liar and has no God. Given that plus her utter rank incompetence, jaw dropping stupidity and absurd handling of this nations business at government level, then there is no hope at all. She did not win the national election in 2010, she simply scraped through by deceit and mustering of the rotten useless bastards, Oakshott and Windsor and the add on dunce Wilkie. Gillard got less than 26% of the vote. An utter failure and her performance matches that figure indeed. A rotten liar, a rorter, no God, no Integrity so therefore there is no Hope with her at the helm of so called Government.

If my memory serves me right I recall something like 87% of Australians voted to keep the monachy as our head of state several years back. This was at a national referendum. Gillard is an admitted atheist and was a member of the commo party at uni, she is living defacto with a ladies hairdresser. What does this woman believe in. I was a labor voter some years back, but I"m disgusted with the party. Keating was the only labor leader with any balls. Hawke was an atheist, drunk and womaniser. Now the party is a full house of ex-union leaders with no worldly experience. Who would this broken arsed labor gov make head of State if we dumped the Queen. Anna Bligh, Joan Kerner, or perhaps the present pip squeak Gov Gen. What a Joke this crowd are.

Both Australia & the UK are sh!tholes, both are backward & corrupt, & both countries are police states.
GET RID OF THE PC FANATICS & THE FEMINIST LUNATICS, EVEN IF IT MEANS WE HAVE TO DRAW A LINE & PARTITION THE WHOLE BLOODY COUNTRY!
I've got more respect for the Queen than any of the pathetic insipid little creatures that dwell down in Canberra.
F*ck I hate this country!
Take it steady brother. We all agree with you. The countries gone to the pack. All the Fed Politicians can talk about is same sex marriage (Legalized Buggery)soon they will want it taught in schools. This gov is a pack of garbage arses. Look at that stupid Albanese. Its disgusting what they have done to this country.

Our pathetic Welsh born PM was only naturalised as an Australian in January - I'm suprised at her hate for UK! Obviously the red headed Fanta pants had sand kicked in her face as a child over there, makes sence with her boot lip attitude! You guys want her back?

Given the proven mess Madame Jul-liar Eileen Gillard has made of our country - which includes the building/education rort, the pink bats rort, grocery watch rort, fuel watch rort, climate change rort, the airport stuff up and rort, the roads stuff up and rort, the education rort, the illegal invaders rort, the so called national deficit rort and the list goes on and on, then I am interested as to how the national election can be brought forward so that we voters with the baseball bats at the ready can attack her with a vengeance! Whether that be at the polls or our pens at a brought forward national election we voters need to kick her big bum to kingdome come. Never ever let us have this rotten lot of labor/greens/turncoat bastards in national government ever again. Just fools and rorters that they have proven to be. I rest my case.

YEs/ 200% correct Eric. What we need here in AUstralia today is Citizens Induced Referenda and Right of Recall. These are mechanisms that will provide Aussies to get rid of rotten corrupt governments. Bring it on, NOW.

I am utterly disgusted at the incompetence of Gillard and the the whole lot of her hangers on. What a pack of utterly useless people they really are. They have proven to us rorted voters that they would not even win a basic public service job. Mr Abbott has a massive job ahead of him post the next election to clean out the rotten bureaucracy, overhaul public service recruitment, reduce the number of useless utterly corrupted government departments. A film should be made of the the Rudd/gillard/brown failed minority government to expose these creeps for what they have done to our country. A disgusting financial and administrative mess indeed.

Must be the only country (maybe also Nigeria) where someone takes pride in a deficit of manners and decorum.
