In January Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott each gave speeches at the National Press Club. Someone following the news might have been under the impression the only item of note in the speeches was the announcement of the date for the next election.
In actual fact the Prime Minister had much more to say. Unfortunately, I have only come across three articles that offer any in-depth analysis of either speech:
Bernard Keane: Gillard’s speech — the other 3500 words
Ross Gittins: Gillard talks tough in election year
Greg Jericho: Easy solutions and complex realities
