A tip for the 11:30 “historical event”: Kevin Rudd to resign as PM

January 16th, 2009 at 10:36am

There is, according to the Prime Minister’s office, going to be an historic event with the (currently on leave) Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Governor General Quentin Bryce at Government House at 11:30 this morning. No other details have been announced.

My tip (aka wild speculation) is that, considering the amount of time Julia Gillard has spent talking to the media of late, Kevin is resigning, making Julia Gillard our first female prime minister. It would explain the secrecy over the details, and the “historic event”.

Update: It’s a Victoria Cross for Trooper Mark Donaldson. Very important, but I don’t understand the secrecy. End Update

    You certainly are consistent …. this prediction was about as accurate as any of your footy tips or election calls!

    Indeed…I wonder if my record will be upheld with my “no” vote on the issue of the Canberra Raiders Sports Club acquiring the West Belconnen Leagues Club. We’ll find out on the 13th of February.

    Well, I didn’t mention your Melbounre Cup calls …

    Are you prepated to predict that Trooper Donaldson will be Australian of the Year? I think that willl be a sfare bet!
