some of my predictions for 2014:
My first prediction, which was for January 29 this year, has occurred: As reported by Kim, I predicted:
‘January 29: An important date for Australia’s image or position possibly associated with government
The front-page news on January 29 was the appointment of Retired General Peter Cosgrove as Australia’s new Governor General. He has said he will ‘seek to represent all Australians as the Nation’s next Governor General’.
He will assume the position for five years, replacing current Gov-Gen Quentin Bryce.
Also in the news was a policewoman who ‘shredded the floor’ at a Big Day Out festival; a great image for Young
Also the Labour Minister who was caught in a photograph ‘Skulling beer’ upside-down during Australia Day celebrations. Also looming: tropical cyclone off the Queensland coast.
Quite a day both for Australia’s image – and for government policy. Retired General Peter Cosgrove will assume the position as government representative for the next five years.
