Aussie PM Julia Gillard (Image Credit: Fairfax Media)
Julia Gillard has just become Australia's first female Prime Minister! Born in Wales in 1961, her family emigrated to Australia in 1966. A 48 year old lawyer, she now leads Australia's Labor Party. By all accounts she is a strong leader and has fared well in ignoring drivel polls such as this one (which came up as one of the highest hits on my Google search) while Deputy PM. CNN quoted her as saying "The government was losing its way..." so I'm seriously hoping she can have a chat with Australian Senator Steve Fielding (Family First Party) because the man is not just lost but confused and rather objectionably misogynist.
