Default My government went through a coup last night (Australia)

I went to bed last night with Kevin Rudd as Australian Prime Minister. I woke up and there's a new one! Julia Gillard is our new Prime Minister.

Its not quite a coup. Coups are unconstitutional. It seems to me that it is simply a shake up in the Labor Party and their attempt to try to salvage the mess that has been Rudd's tenure.

Julia Gillard is just as if not worse than him. Time to start finding ways to short Australia.

Julia Gillard is a Fabian Socialist. Not exactly one who even tries to hide it as some "Progressive Moderate".

Hardly has that dramatic flair though does it?

This is what Labour in the UK wishes it had done a year ago. Although I doubt whatever Kevins troubles he was as bad as Brown.

Trust me, we've had enough. The general population has lost a great deal of confidence in the Federal Politics of this country, it's more about popularity than policy, and it's left a bad taste in our mouths. I can see The Greens getting a few more seats in the house after the next Federal Election, which will be sooner rather than later.
