Watching Gillard talk to Cassidy as I write this. As always she keeps reminding him that his first name is ‘Barry’ and seems not to know the meaning of any English verb. She used the phrase ‘cooperate very strongly’. What can this possibly mean? She says ‘as I move around the country’. How does she do this? It implies she is like God’s love, or a cyclone depression system. Move around the country. How do you do that? Fly, yes. Drive, yes. Go, yes. Move?
I will play the interview back in the next day or so and list the words and phrases — ‘we have a deep understanding of the problems that face the Australian communidy’ is one of them — she plainly uses and does not understand, as an unschooled and baffled yurt-dwelling Outer Mongolian might use them and not understand them while struggling to pronounce them in a public setting after being kidnapped, brainwashed and parachuted into Garema Place in handcuffs.
Watch this space.
