Julia Gillard, to the US Congress:
I know many of you worked hard to achieve the Australia-US Free Trade agreement.
Thank you. Our FTA experience shows the benefits of free trade.
I haven’t watched the video of that part of her speech, but did she use a very sarcastic voice when she said “thank you”? Did she add at the end of that last sentence “…to you at our expense you profiteering bastards”?
I suspect not.
Which is a shame, because it would’ve been a hell of a lot more accurate.
