Define "irresponsible" Ms. Gillard

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, has moved back from stating the actions of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are illegal, now claiming they are "irresponsible"

Irresponsible? Perhaps. But not as irresponsible as the bungled home insulation scheme overseen by over the hill pub singer Peter Garrett, that has been linked to the deaths of at least four people and scores of house fires - leading to the whole thing being scrapped.

Despite calls for Garrett to be sacked he was staunchly defended and remains a key player in the current government.

WikiLeaks may be irresponsible but it has not cost Australian lives, nor in reality, is it ever likely to.

Anyway, we have former Prime Minister John Howard to hold responsible for the needless deaths of young Australians.

Ms Gillard, what is your definition of "irresponsible"? Leaked cables that pretty much state what most already knew - or continuing to send young men and women to die in a foreigner's war in the hope of getting a better seat at the never ending round of political talk-fests?

Wherever you may be - be safe
