I'm not one to be petty but Julia Gillard has forfeited my vote forever

Australian Labor Party deputy leader, and shadow Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard has lost any chance of my vote in the future. I was trawling around the web in an effort to assess the qualities of opposition politicians and I came across this item.

It is an extract from an episode of Australian Story broadcast on 6th March 2006.

At the very beginning of the item she states (and I quote): "My family are Welsh". A singular subject with a plural verb! Nnnooooooooo...! The woman does not deserve advancement beyond shadow status.
