Embattled Australian Prime Minister and atheist Julia Gillard, and first woman PM, literally dodged the proverbial bullet today, as she avoided an ouster when potential challenger and predecessor Kevin Rudd decided not to run against her.

A Labor minister called for a leadership ballot for the struggling party before the September elections.  Even despite all the crazy rumors attributing bizarre muslim related statements to her, Gillard has had a problem with popularity since she replaced Rudd, and caught a lot of flack for her statements on immigration.

The Cabinet minister said an election victory depended on returning Rudd to the position, but in a surprise move, Rudd rejected that opportunity, which left Gillard unopposed.

The former PM said he was simply honoring a promise not to challenge Gillard.  In more news Gillard apologized today, on behalf of the government, for some 225,000 forced adoptions between 1951 and 1975, reports the AFP.  In many cases unmarried pregnant women were pushed into giving up their babies.  A victimized mother called this “kidnapping,”  and went on to say “To you, the mothers who were betrayed by a system that gave you no choice and subjected you to manipulation, mistreatment, and malpractice, we apologize,” she said.

So the rumors will continue to fly about what she, Julia Gillard, said or not said, as she will apparently have clear sailing in the rough seas of the September elections.

    I like her. She’s not going to let the Muzzies take over like they did here in the UK. Sorry if I’ve offended but they breed like rats over here and openly talk about taking over England. We don’t like the bloody bastards.

      Actually, some of the statements attributed to her are fake, but she does think that foreigners should integrate into society if they expect to stay there. Can’t say I disagree with her on that.
