Dear Prime Minister Gillard,
I’m writing to in regards to your speech in parliament today. I have to say, I have watched it several times and am deeply impressed.
Firstly, you stood up for Australian women and put on the record that you were insulted by the behaviour of Mr Abbott and his kin. You proved your point without lowering yourself to the language of Mr Abbott et al; I did enjoy you razzing him about waking up and discovering sexism. You bombarded him with examples of his own vile behaviour while in office under the Howard Government. I applaud your ability to remind him that inequality for women is very real and he contributes to .
Secondly, I thank you for bringing back some kind of dignity to the House Of Representatives and Prime Ministership. You spoke with conviction, passion, and strength. I believe I saw a few Liberal MP’s shift uncomfortably in the seats, generally a sign of uncomfortable agreement. I believe the speech you gave today was probably your best to date.
Thirdly, you gave me a small moment of hope. That likes of Mr Abbott and is school yard bully friends, will never have control to govern my life. It was hard enough for me under Howard’s Regime let alone what Mr Abbott would do.
Twitter is alive with your praise and one tweet in particular has stood out. This from @jamesadonis
If Julia Gillard spoke every day the way she spoke in parliament today, Tony Abbott would not be leading in the polls. #lateline

Please keep this in mind the next time your in front of the press.
Thank you for today. Please, for everyone’s sake, be that PM everyday and keep Mr Abbott and his bullies out of the top job.
