Our PM is in fashion in the US

It has been a busy week for The Blowfly.

Last week he’d managed to ensconce himself firmly on the PM’s shoulder when she boarded her plane to the US. He was on top of the world. Her thoughts were flowing freely and The Blowfly’s psychic powers were at their best.

Then we landed in the ‘good ole US of A’.

Firstly there was the meeting with the President in the Oval Office.

The Blowfly had to hold on for dear life.

Have you ever seen the PM kick a footy? She’d had lessons from Jason Akermanis a couple of years ago and then another 2 from Barry Hall last season (that’s when you realized that she was going to be a strong opponent for Tony Abbott because----between and I ---‘Big Bad Barry’ taught her how to administer a bit of ‘biffo’ when the cameras weren’t on her).

Anyway it was a sight to see and Obama took it on the chin-----literally-----he copped the red Sherrin on the right side of the face as she sent a stab-pass across the mid-field of The Oval Office.

But it was the speech to Congress that was the highlight of the trip.

Sticking ever close to the nape of her neck so that the security cameras could not pick me up, The Blowfly managed to be there for this historical event.

On her way to Congress she had a few moments of quiet time to herself in the car on the way over.

The Blowfly tuned into her thoughts.

“Well here I am----------a little redheaded Pommy-girl about to address the US Congress-------eat your heart out Kevin Rudd!...........he blew it yet again……….when he was over here all he did was to get pissed and go to nightclubs where they had naked dancers…….and even then he could not remember a thing…………..and I’ll bet that tosser Abbott is in a confessional right now asking to be forgiven for the envy he feels towards me for being the 4th Australian Prime Minister to address Congress…………gee I hope they like the way Tim has done my hair…………aren’t I a lucky poopskin having a hairdresser for a consort……I just love it the way he fusses over me…………mmmm ….I’m still not sure about this orange jacket I’m wearing …………. but Trinny and Susannah said it would be fine because it complements my hair………Golly gee gosh I hope Wayne is holding the fort OK while I’m away-------no!no! you have to focus on the here and now girl……you are going to wow them………I hope they like the bit in my speech about the moon landing………the Yanks love it when they are reminded of their glory days…..don’t mention Vietnam though……………I hope they won’t mind me telling them to be bold………….zzzzzzz”

“Ms Gillard, Ms Gillard, you’re here” warned her aide, tapping her gently on the shoulder.

The words of Will Rogers drifted through The Blowfly’s mind : “It’s great to be great, but it’s greater to be human.”
