Thanks for providing the background on the speech.
How do we get Question Time in the US? I bet a lot of politicians here would freak at the thought.
It had never occurred to me that question time might be peculiar to the Westminster system! How amazing. Although I don’t think this speech of Gillard’s was during question time - I THINK it was during a debate on a bill or motion about reacting to Slipper, but I could be wrong about that.
