Can you think of a name for Julia Gillard’s forthcoming Biography?

September 25, 2013

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard at home, Canberra, Australia - 23 Oct 2011

Former PM Julia Gillard has announced that she will publish her memoirs while her memory is still fresh “both emotionally and intellectually”.

“I want to weave the politics and personal together. It’s not going to be a biography from the day I was born all through my school years or anything like that, but I do want to draw on my personal experiences and how they informed my politics,” she told The Gutter Trash.

“I also want to try to answer those questions which were so often put to me. How do you do it? How do you get up every day and do it? And also why did you do it? What was really important to you to get done as prime minister?”

Ms Gillard said she was using the writing process to reflect on her time in politics.

“When you’re prime minister a lot of what you say is mediated through others and that is understandable but this will be my words, direct,” she said.

Ms Gillard said that she would be writing the book herself and not using a ghostwriter.

    Hahaha…’A lice’…I see what you did there.

    I guess it wouldn’t work as well if you used ‘louse’.

    I did think about using the singular, TBoss. Still not that funny but the best I could make of it. How about something more poignant like “Crossed Lines and Broken Promises – My Love Affair With The Australian People”?

    Gotta be short and simple, sb …

    “Uses For A Kitchen Knife”

    What about:

    “Shades of Red”

    Anyway I’m a fan of brainstorming … stick the ideas out there and then build on ’em …

    (BTW .. TBoss was a nickname for Toillette in latter years … TB is fine) 😉

    It is all very disappointing for old fashioned romantics like me.
