Who exactly is in charge? I live in NSW, Australia, near Sydney, and chief public leaders are:
Sydney mayor: Clover Moore
NSW Governor: Marie Bashir
NSW Premier: Kristina Keneally
Governor-General: Ms Quentin Bryce
Prime Minster: Julia Gillard
Head of State: Queen Elizabeth II
Quite extraordinary; but a misleading snapshot of public life in Australia, where the majority of positions are still held by men, and ethnic minorities are badly under-represented.
