Julia Gillard has alienated many Victorian supporters in her call for Brisbane to unite against Collingwood. This sort of divisive politics has marred her campaign.
Gillard is a highly capable member of parliament and her ascendancy to the Prime-ministership is welcomed… but did she have to attack Collingwood. This may have been a major tactical error . An error that could cost Labor a third senate seat as it struggles to achieve 42% support.
As prime-minister Gillard has to govern for all of Australia, whilst she should be entitled support the Western Bulldogs, there was no need for her to attack one of Australia’s greatest Football teams. Collingwood.
Go the pies.
