It's not often question time in the Australian parliament gets international press. But this was such a spectacle that it's been covered in papers on the other side of the world. I was pretty darn proud to call her our PM after seeing it... Abbott (the opposition) is a real chauvinist head-kicking asswipe ... and seeing her tear shreds off him was quite entertaining.

A bit of backstory. A MP (kinda like a congressman) by the unfortunate name of "Slipper" who was "speaker of the house" was forced to resign for hitting on one of his staffers and sending him lurid text messages about certain parts of the female body... Tony Abbott is the opposition leader (like Romney is to Obama) ... and he's latched onto the fact Gillard's party won't disown Slipper, accusing her government of sexism and mysoginy ... The reality is her government is clinging onto any loyalty they can find as their majority is so slim .. He also lay a low-blow when he said her party "should have died of shame" ... a reference to something a radio-shock jock said the other week about Gillard's father passing away ("he died of shame over her policies")...

if you have a couple of minutes, check it out..
