Juliar Gillard was a lawyer from 1987 until 1995 when she took a leave of absence from Slater and Gordon to unsuccessfully run for the senate. She resigned completely in 1996.

Everyone please ignore HID.All he is aiming at is a thread shutdown. I mean, when was Julia a lawyer??...give me a break!!.

Now why would I want this mature thread closed, save's me having to read woman's day for whose partner is leaving who and which lesbian polly is doing what to who.
I am baffled why such a large number of liberal men have such an inferiority complex with women. From Downer to his "things that batter" speech to Abbott "quite happy for them to be in the kitchen" spray.
Maybe it's the Catholic philosophy taking precedence.
Nuff said

.....right before she was about to be given the sack.

Come on SOPS, HID's uninformed opinions are always good for a bit of mirth and merriment just before bedtime. Leave him (her?) alone.

"Leave him (her?) alone."

Don't need to anymore, he seems to have a banner next to his name :O

TA sworn in :ok:


Question for those ex military people.

The GG's female Army ADC was standing off to one side,
in the attention position but with her hands in the at ease
position (ie behind her back).

Anyone know why she wasn't either at Attention or at ease
instead of a bit of both ?

SOPS 18th Sep 2013 00:38

500, I don't know the answer, but I give you 10 out of 10 for attention to detail.:ok:

500N 18th Sep 2013 00:42

To be honest, I don't think anyone who has been in the Military ever loses it,
especially if they have been an instructor or NCO.

Just my HO.

FYI, the GG has 3 Female ADC's !!!
First time ever.

500N 18th Sep 2013 02:13

Here she is in the background

Heh, there's eight people in that photo and only one male..:ooh: complaints should be made..;)

SOPS 18th Sep 2013 04:00

Well you can't say he is not a man of action. He was only in the job a few minutes, and he sacked 3 senior public servants.

The next few days might be interesting.

Worrals in the wilds 18th Sep 2013 04:20

Wouldn't she be wearing a hat if she were properly standing to attention? Or doesn't that apply indoors? :confused:
I wonder if it's more the awkward 'I've got loads of cameras pointing in my direction' pose rather than a formal one. It looks similar to pics of uniformed government people at airports when a VIP turns up.

As for the public servants, as you say... Interesting times ahead. I imagine that a few departments may now feature on the Endangered Species list. :ooh:

500N 18th Sep 2013 04:30

Worrals

Attention and Stand at ease are performed with or without a hat.

"uniformed government people" and the military are slightly different
but I am sure it is in a manual, drill or ceremonial somewhere.

The skirt is a bit creased as well :O

bosnich71 18th Sep 2013 04:50

" the skirt is a bit creased as well"........ perhaps it is the content that is the cause.
Oh,b****r, I've gone all misogynist again. :uhoh:

Worrals in the wilds 18th Sep 2013 04:53

Thanks for that 500N

Please, please, please, please!!!!:ok:
Oh, and all ALPBC "journalists".:E

Andu 18th Sep 2013 21:09

ALPBC reporting that the Indonesians are "very unhappy" with the new Australian government policy on asylum seekers.

My first reaction is probably best not put into print.

sisemen 18th Sep 2013 21:12

Progress at last!

500N 18th Sep 2013 21:16

Love it :D:D:D:D

Even if the Indos move 25% to doing a bit more it is a win
from doing nothing ATM.

I think it will be a long hard road to stop them but I think in
the long run they will slow them down at a minimum, especially
once word gets through that they will never get perm residency
and the number of appeals, if any decrease so non of this endless
lefty BS that has been going on.
