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
