Julia Gillard raises the standards, convictions and reaffirms faith in the most crucial battle in Australian democracy

Julia-GillardAs  per Ms Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia’s  issued statement tonight, she “will attend the event organised by The Courier Mail at the Broncos Leagues Club to debate Tony Abbott on the economy,” though Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has rejected having a one-hour debate on the economy before the event. A fitting finale to the great battle of democracy that is drawing to a close as Australia goes to poll on 21st August, 2010.

Julia Gillard, the 27th and current Prime Minister of Australia since June 2010, with a political career that spans a decade, has finally come out of the Shadow (cabinets) literally, and has in the short span of time in the saddle, been able to command trust, faith, belief and above all reflect genuine commitment to the political causes that she has been upholding in the course of this Election. A staunch supporter of the global policies of US, aligning her Government’s attitude to the ones in Washington on crucial issues such as the Afghan War, and facing a  democratic constituency that has over 2.7 million youth ( under the age of 30) going to polls, this will be also be the crucible of democracy that will decide the dawn of the New Australia.

Ms.Gillard is no stranger to popularity amongst youth, going by the popularity yardsticks of the wired youth of this generation, and none would be more comfortable in their ;friendship; communities than her. For starters, Ms. Gillard has over 23, 700 friends in her MySpace account Australia. That will put some perspective on the inroads she has made in a demographic that hold the key to the current elections on 21st August.

With clear, incisive and decisive domestic policies on Health, Education, Immigration and even on Climate change, it would be an interesting Julia Gillard and Tony Abbot debatefinale to the great battle that would have its final act at the Broncos Leagues Club, engaging in a debate with an Opposition Leader who has interestingly promised to “establish an Independent Debates Commission to independently dictate the terms of leaders debates in future federal elections !”

Mr Abbott will take  the stage at 6pm to take questions from about 200 Queensland voters.Ms Gillard will then front the same audience at 7.30pm. And Australia would be waiting. Don’t miss this amazing campaign put together by the Australian Electoral Commission. It is awesome and quite creative. Enjoy.

    Oh goody another 1/2 hour of Julia Gillard speaking like she’s addressing a slow 5 year old child, showing the palms of her hands in some faux gesture of compassion and sincerity. 30 minutes of spin and slogans because if she says something often enough it must be true.

    A 30 minute ‘debate’ on a trillion dollar economy – Abbott must be joking. He obviously isn’t confident

    Isn’t it funny how people respond to women of power? It’s almost as if they can’t accept the sheer shock of it, and they’re reduced to making cracks about the woman’s appearance and personal life. It is sad to see even women join such groups on facebook and stuff. They are digging their own graves by joining such groups. There are pages and groups saying Julia Gillard is supposed to be in the kitchen, Hey!! tat kind of men’s thinking is sick. I hoep she kicks abbots ass in the debate. he is a cunning guy , very crafty

    It just . . . sucks!

    It’s obvious that Tony Abbott hasn’t a clue what his Economic policies are otherwise he’d welcome a debate about the Australian Economy. In the next couple of days take a good look at the Liberals TV ads compared to Labor. About 95% of Labor’s ads cite a PUBLISHED SOURCE in their ads when making comments about Tony Abbott’s policies. The Liberal ads run on scare mongering rhetoric WITHOUT a quotable source to referring to their comments. This way they go on about “Illegal Immigration out of control” and “the waste…$100,000,000 spent every day WITHOUT actually quoting a fact.
