Winter, Mark 1958- :The Australian PM has a 'tents' moment... 27 January 2012
Southland times (Newspaper)
Shows Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard falling over. The second cartoon has a reference to the 'tea party' incident when a conversation between Prime Minister John Key and ACT candidate for the Epsom seat, John Banks, in a highly publicized meeting over a cup of tea, was recorded. Context: Comments by federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott that perhaps it was time for the Aboriginal tent embassy to move on triggered a protest that trapped him and Prime Minister Julia Gillard in a Canberra restaurant. About 200 protesters ran from the tent embassy, where 40th anniversary celebrations were under way, to the nearby Lobby restaurant in Canberra after learning Abbott was giving a speech there. Gillard, surrounded by security officers in the midst of the throng, stumbled and lost a shoe. [TVNZ Jan 26 2012] Two versions of this cartoon are available Quantity: 2 digital cartoon(s).
