Putting modern families in view
. Move over contact lenses. Perhaps the first bloke did a Craig Emerson
and drank them. Whatever. A modern Prime Minister now wears glasses. And modernity has broken out everywhere in Julia Gillard's political world. Five "modern families" in yesterday's National Press Club speech; three "modern pressures" plus the "pressure of modern life" to go with "modern, busy pressurised lives", in a "modern nation" that has a "modern economy" with "modern medicine" in this "modern world". In all 14 moderns and a couple of modernises.
Getting the picture
. My Crikey
colleague Bernard Keane was quick to note after yesterday's speech that the PM's speech didn’t mention the opposition or Tony Abbott at all. Not a single Liberal, National or Coalition.
How long to go is that?
Take your tabloid pick.
