Julia Gillard Quotes
Here is Yellow Magpie’s pick of the very best Julia Gillard quotes.
‘Well, I hope the Leader of the Opposition has got a piece of paper and he is writing out his resignation. Because if he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he doesn’t need a motion in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror.’

‘Those of you who have spent time with Australians know that we are not given to overstatement. By nature we are laconic speakers and by conviction we are realistic thinkers.’
‘Here in Australia we do get impacted by global economic events. But we should have some confidence that our economy has got strong underlying fundamentals.’
‘We of course remember the days when the leader of the house was the bovver boy, stand over man of Australian politics, now he’s just pathetic and this is just a pathetic resolution moved to try and guillotine this debate through this House from a minister who only yesterday … was complaining about debate being guillotined.’
‘I want you to know what I have told Australia’s Parliament in Canberra – what I told General Petraeus in Kabul – what I told President Obama in the Oval Office this week. Australia will stand firm with our ally the United States.’
‘My guiding principle is that prosperity can be shared. We can create wealth together. The global economy is not a zero-sum game.’
‘I know people are looking at what’s happening in Washington and then they also look at events in Europe, in Greece and Portugal and other places and worry about that.’
