Sometimes I wonder whether we deserve democracy. After the “Great Debate” where we get to hear our prospective leaders articulate their stance on vital issues, what is the public’s focus? Julia Gillard’s earlobes.
I am not a fan of Julia Gillard at all, but for a start I think it is cruel and cowardly for random people to hide behind the distance and anonymity the internet provides and dissect her appearance. Secondly, this shouldn’t be about people’s looks but about whether they should be running the country.
People complain about politicians but I can’t help but think that we get exactly the government we deserve.
