Gillard walks backwards to Christmas (Island)

That Julia Gillard seemed like such a nice, intelligent, sensible, competent young woman, and now look!

Oh, Julia, Julia, wherefore art though Labor? Deny thy founding fathers and get a new name. Like the "New Liberals"

But why should us mugs be surprised that a Prime Minister who was elected by the people can get turfed out by a bunch of faceless hacks? It was all explained perfectly by Sir Humphrey in "Yes Minister"

MPs are not chosen by 'the people' - they are chosen by their local constituency parties: thirty-five men in grubby raincoats or thirty-five women in silly hats

DH can vouch for this personally, as you can see from this picture of her descending on parliament in her most sensible pre-selectors hat.
