Julia Gillard gets what she apparently wanted from the get-go.
Earlier in the week she rang Bob Carr and offered him Mark Arbib’s vacated senate seat, and the foreign affairs portfolio, which has been his dream for years. Then she was talked out of it, and denied that there was any truth to the news reports about her phone call.
Bob Carr also denied anything was happening or that he had any interest in the job.
Today, the mind is changed again. It has been announced by Julia Gillard that Bob Carr will be appointed to the senate and to the Foreign Affairs portfolio.
I suppose this means we should look forward to the return of the “good to see you, good to see you” parodies of Bob Carr again.
