“The (Abbott) government’s narrative is that they haven’t been able to do anything… There’s a negative story attached to the government. They must somehow shift the momentum. The mould will be set if they don’t do something soon and they will have a really, really hard time — and most likely will lose the next election.”
What a month!
Here’s my little review of January in Australian Politics, along with a couple of Global Political events as well!
I had a bit of an argument with my parents about Tony Abbott the other day.
I argued at the time: Tony Abbott isn’t, in my personal opinion, an impressive statesman. After so long as a politician, he should have a better grip of diplomacy, personal image and the way he carries himself. I.e. Indonesian phone hacking scandal.
Social media is disconnecting people.
Some food for thought about social media saturation and the value of actions, not words:
– Trayvon Martin.
– Edward Snowden, Wikileaks and Julian Assange.
– Social media in Politics.
More than just a leadership change happened yesterday.
“What happened, PIK? I’m overwhelmed! It makes no sense, why should I care?”
1. Julia Gillard called a leadership spill, Kevin Rudd challenged her; Kevin Rudd won – 57 votes to 45. He is now the leader of the ALP, and the [un-elected] Prime Minister of Australia.
