Gillard Tries to Distract Voters with Immigration Debate
I am not happy with Julia Gillard. First she lets the miners walk all over her, exposing to the Australian people just how much control corporate Australia has over politicians. She and Labor know that the mining tax is a politically sensitive topic, so what does she do? Before voters have a chance to digest the implications of Gillard's sellout, she throws out the immigration issue from nowhere to whip voters into a frenzy and distract them. And it seems to be working. This style of politics is so cynical that it disgusts me.
