So I was thinking, as I so often do; I thought about Prime Minister Abbott, after my last entry about Prime Ministerial interviews – what will his legacy be?
I (over?) simplified John and Julia’s tenures into a series of bullet points as below:
On Tuesday 30th of September, former Foreign, Trade and Defence Minister Stephen Smith spoke at the monthly branch meeting of the Australian Institute of International Affairs for WA. His speaking topic was “Continuity in Australian Foreign Policy”.
But what is “continuity in Australian Foreign Policy”? What on God’s green earth does that mean?!
“[In] Australia increased trust in the institution of government is up 13 percentage points to 56 per cent.
However, three in five Australians (60 per cent) do not trust government leaders to tell the truth regardless of how complex or unpopular it is.
And two in five Australians (40 per cent) do not trust government leaders to make ethical and moral decisions.”

February was a really interesting month — Schapelle released, Ukraine in turmoil, Protests at the Winter Olympics, The USA dodging another fiscal default, Aussie troops coming home from Afghanistan, The violent death of an asylum seeker at Manus Island and GWAR’s decapitation of a Tony Abbott effigy at Soundwave.
I had a very interesting conversation with a Sydney Morning Herald writer called Clementine Ford on September 16th. Scroll back through my tweets, an interesting read.
Personally, I am exhausted by people using the gender card as an attack point; this isn’t Yu Gi Oh.
I am baffled.
I initially started out wanting to do an entry on why Gen Y were so disengaged from this election, then came the furor about
Tony Abb-…Prime Minster Abbott’s Cabinet. I sent out a survey to some fellow Gen Y-ers, and got some fascinating responses; I have talked to many other people ofdifferent ages and professions, and every generation had a different experience.
I want to explore Gen –Y’s…
Generation Y just lost our Ministry. No more minister for Youth.
My blood, it boils.
Take a look at this before you read any further:
Tony Abbott announced his new ‘Kitchen’ Cabinet today…
1/19 Ministers is female; kind of proud it’s my local member, Julie Bishop. I’ve worked at her electoral offices for a University Practium and she is a good local member for Curtin.
That doesn’t so much bother me, people should get jobs based on merit. Political parties aren’t exactly Female-central.
