The new PM has started as promised and promoted more women to Cabinet including Australia’s first ever female Defence Minister. There are 21 people in Cabinet, meaning that women now make up 24% of Cabinet, up from 11% (with 19 Cabinet ministers) under the previous Liberal PM.
There was also something on twitter about the British PM and a pig. #piggate I don’t know if you have noticed it. *snort*
