Prime Minister Offers Victims a Flood of Helpers

Prime Minister Offers Victims a Flood of Helpers

There are a number of difficulties for Julia Gillard, as Prime Minister, in dealing with the Queensland floods, not the least of all is the stark reality that she faces, yet again, with the reminder of Kevin Rudd's electorate being front and centre. While he and the Queensland Premier are in Queensland working for their local area Julia Gillard risks the appearance of being over extending her Prime Ministerial reach in trying to offer the nation's help to make herself look good politically.

Recently some political commentators have spoken about everything from her choice of clothing to her controlled mannerisms, and her disciplined style of speech right through to how much help the Prime Minister has offered to flood victims.

Things like the financial assistance as well as military emergency assistance in the search and rescue and the clean up effort. Such commentators sit in their offices and speculate on what the public's perception might be in regards to the Prime Minister's offering of help.

It got me thinking.

While Australians are in need, and the nation has the resources to help them I don't particularly care for what the Prime Minister's motivation might be so long as the help is getting through.
Is the Prime Minister offering too much military help just to make herself look good? Turn It Up...I'm Michael Robinson
