Australian PM in 'end of the world' spoof

Julia Gillard recorded a comical doomsday message to help promote Australia's Triple J radio show.

Gillard's announcement left many people scratching their heads when it first appeared on-line. "Whether the final blow comes from flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell beasts or from the total triumph of K-pop, if you know one thing about me it is this: I will always fight for you to the very end," she said before quipping "at least this means I won't have to do Q & A again."

The Prime Minister's office was inundated with calls following the broadcast. "What Australian doesn't mind a laugh from time to time?" the office replied in a statement. "Anyway, the world's going to end so shouldn't you be writing about that?"

"Julia Gillard's 50-second message addresses her "dear remaining fellow Australians"."

And it was Australia that stood its ground in war, now It's the ground of, "let's go to and bludge off of Australia because we can". Everyone but Australians can afford to aquire cake and eat it too. And they do it for nothing while A percentage of Aussie families have to live in their cars. War has nothing to do with political mistakes before the election. If Australia pulled all of our troops out now, we would be seen as traitors. Even though this country can't afford to be. Just to clarify posters, the video is a mock attempt and was fabricated. It's funny becaus... [More]

It's short for Krap. Actually I believe it's the home-grown genre of pop peculiar* to South Korea. * I use the word advisedly

She isn't through and through though. I do not listen to triple J all that often, it's shame I missed it. It's good some of the time, but I think most people listen to it it constantly so they can tell people they are "cool". Not often we see a lighter, or personable side of Julia. Not often she gives us reason to smile either, It's a nice change. I would not vote for her though. Never did. Doubt I ever will.
