Gillard goes arse up again

Julia Gillard has tipped over again after a shoe malfunction. She should have taken a leaf out of Holly Walker’s fashion tips and worn gumboots when walking on grass.

She sure is going to have a massive sore cankle in the morning.

Julia Gillard fell over spectacularly near the Gandhi Memorial in Delhi today after having yet another shoe problem.

On her way to a press conference on the last day of her tour of India, the Prime Minister lost a shoe when the heel dug into the soft grass.

Later she laughed off the incident, providing a lengthy explanation for the men around: “For men who get to wear flat shoes all day every day, if you wear a heel it can get embedded in soft grass.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard walks past the spot where she tripped earlier during her official visit to India.

”And then when you pull your foot out, the shoe doesn’t come, and then the rest of it is as you saw.”
