The list of winners, which Prime Minister Kevin Rudd will announce a bit later this afternoon is as follows:
Australian of the Year 2010: Professor Patrick McGorry of Victoria
Senior Australian of the Year 2010: Maggie Beer of South Australia
Young Australian of the Year 2010: Trooper Mark Donaldson VC of Western Australia
Australia’s Local Hero 2010: Ronni Kahn of New South Wales
There we go. No need to wait around and endure the painful process of listening to Kevin Rudd talk.
