Julia Gillard, the new Prime Minister of Australia, is a redhead. So far, so good. However, I am reliably informed that in that part of the Antipodes, anyone with red hair is called …. Blood Nut! The Aussies certainly enjoy their propensity for giving everything and everyone a nickname. As a redhead myself, I am used to being called Ginger or Ginge (which I like), Carrot Top (which I tolerate), but Blood Nut? Dear reader, I just want you to know that if anyone calls me Blood Nut, this Pommy will not be responsible for the consequences! Fellow redheads, what do you think?
