Gillard the ‘Victim’ Yet Again

Julia Gillard starts off by empathising with Tony Abbott:

‘I do have an understanding of what Tony Abbott is going through it is a very difficult thing you are very bruised and battered’, she said.

‘You don’t realise how intellectually and physically exhausted you are until you stop’.

I thought this was strange given that, unlike Abbott, Gillard also has the experience of knifing a first term sitting Prime Minister.

And of course, Gillard just couldn’t resist another opportunity to play the victim:

Australia’s first female prime minister said Mr Turnbull will be spared the ‘gendered critique and insult’ that became the ‘go-to weapon’ towards the end of her term.

I think I’ll decline Gillard’s invitation to feel sorry for her.
