Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says people viewed Ms Gillard's response to the Queensland floods as "wooden."
And his response has been?? It is what people do, what they actually do and Julia Gillard has been out there since Christmas and I even saw her on the French2 news the other night and they were pleased we had done well and that our Prime Minister was reporting we had had one birth overnight during Yasi and ,of course, we found out later we had had two others as well. The translator had absolutely no difficulty translating her speech into French and representing her, and therefore us, on their news. We actually need support right now and people who notice we are doing our best to meet gruelling demands and conditions. Team effort. We have been a good team.
