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"."

Australian? Australian, Australian... ah I remembered Australian armies everywhere whenever there is war. 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 clar... [More]

I hate Julia, but she gets a point for this gag. Very Australian, that's what makes us so frigging great! She isn't through and through though. Julia Eileen Gillard (born 29 September 1961) is an Australian politician who is the 27th Prime Minister of Australia and the Leader of the Australian Labor Party since 24 June 2010. She is the first woman to hold either office. Gillard was born in Barry, Wales, and migrated with her family to Adelaide, South Australia, in 1966, attending Mitcham Demonstration School and Unley High School. In 1982 she moved to Melbourne, Victoria. She graduated from th... [More]
