I got home from Bible study and suddenly everyone's saying Julia Gillard is Prime Minister. I soon found what they meant was she is as good as PM now. I don't really like Gillard, but then I don't particularly like Kevin Rudd or Tony Abbott either.
I also don't like the idea that they can change the PM without us having any say, what's the point in me voting in the first place? (This is compounded by my previous confusion and frustration at how we're supposed to have a say about the PM but we actually vote for locals.)
Also also, apparently the Australian dollar is volatile... We've had a very volatile trip. Lateline Business likes the word volatile tonight.
