Julia Gillard took to Google+ recently to engage in a Hangout with ordinary citizens. How did it go?
It started off with a question about education but quickly moved onto a conversation about tech start-ups, the digital economy, gay marriage and religion in schools.
While it’s nice to see our Prime Minister jump onto Google+ to chat with the people, it would have been better if it weren’t so staged. Why not choose 10 people from an OurSay poll and throw them into a Hangout with the PM with Tony Jones moderating? Like a citizen’s Q&A?
If you could ask the PM one non-political question, what would it be?
