There's one thing Julia Gillard will never be and that's an orator if her policy speech yesterday is anything to go by. What a dull and boring address to the nation. Yes we will. Yes we will. Yes we will. What a pathetic catch cry. How poorly spoken. For God's sake, if you continue as Prime Minister, get a speech writer. And soon!

Sure she had a winning campaigning day. Political leaders invariably do when they deliver a policy speech. They dominate the television news irrespective of what they say. But there was nothing in the speech to inspire. Just proof that the new Prime Minister can be just as dull and uninspiring as her Labor predecessor and her would-be Coalition replacement. Would people sit through and listen in to a debate between Gillard and Abbott? Surely the answer is "No we won't".
