YouTube clip of our Prime Minister, Julia Gillard giving Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, a verbal castration in front of Parliament. There was even an article about it published in The New Yorker!
Now, I'm fully behind Julia standing up to Tony. He's said some really horrible things in the past and I'm glad he's being called out for it. But some people are saying that these politicians might not be the best role models for kids. (Sorry, I can't find the link for that particular story. But it's not much of a stretch for the imagination to believe that it was said.)
I'm gonna be honest here. I would MUCH rather see my daughter look up to someone like our female Prime Minister than someone like Tony Abbott. Or even worse, this woman.
