Australia’s First Female Governor General

Appointment of Ms Quentin Bryce AC as Australia’s next Governor General is good news. She has had a distinguished career as a lawyer, academic, senior public servant and governor of Queensland (not to mention the 5 kids & several grandchildren). IMHO an excellent choice as Her Excellency (although I do suspect she will prefer to be called “Ms Bryce”).

  1. It’s good to get a female GG. It’s rather a shame the press keep going on and on about how she’s a women all the time. Shades of “Gillard is Aus’ first acting female PM”. It ends up sounding like something we should be worried about.Pity she’s a lawyer though — how about an engineer next time. There are already enough lawyers in government.Of course when the Pom’s throw out the Royal Family we’ll be able to get our own king :-).
