Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard survives party revolt

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.

    I come from ottawa, ontario and what I seen this week is nothing
    compare to what we will suffer in a few years. I agree 100 per cent
    regarding our values and culture. They try to change our song few
    years ago silver bells which it was written by a soldier. They
    dint like the lyrics soon it will be christmas day. They wanted to change it soon it will be festive day. That cause so much anger with
    the canadian so it was drop. If you want to investigate call the
    radio station lorne green cfra 580 ottawa ontario. An hand of applaud
    for Julia Gillard. The less canadian children we have in this country
    stronger the muslins will become.. Watch my word who will be our next
    prime minister one day. If this happen were in deep deep trouble.
    If they want to keep their culture and value why did they came here in the first place. Leave the women and children here and go and
    fight in your country for their freedom. If it was our country our
    husbands wouldnt leave to go to Iraq till the war is over.. We would
    fight it till the end. I understand protecting the children and the
    women.. While the husbands are gone we would be able to integrate
    he women and children in a canadian society . The women and children
    wouldnt fear of their husband who is the ruler of the household
    God bless australia.. Your canadian friend…….

      Thanks for stopping by Rachelle and we understand your concern. I fear the Muslims will create riffs in our nations that cannot easily be healed. Wherever the go they want to force out the existing culture in favor of their own. Rather like a virus.
