Cosgrove next GG
GENERAL Peter Cosgrove has been named by Tony Abbott as Australia's next governor-general.The former chief of defence will replace Kevin Rudd appointee Quentin Bryce in late March. Standing alongside his wife Lynne in Canberra, General Cosgrove, 66, said he was "truly humbled" by the appointment. A General,a conservative and a man - the Left will hate it but Australia can now relax as we have a GG who will be for all the people in a non-ideological and pragmatic manner. I doubt very much he'll rattle on about a Republic as Bryce did whilst drawing the Queen's money, nor would I expect him to be an activist for every feminist and gay group in the country. Good call, Abbott!
