Gillard's shoe a trophy

Austrlaia’s PM, Julia Gillard lost her shoe in ugly scenes outside a Canberra restaurant yesterday. The Prime Minister rode the gauntlet through a group of Aboriginal rights protesters, from the nearby Aboriginal tent embassy. They trapped Ms Gillard and Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott the Lobby restaurant before police arrived to clear a passage for the pair. Amid chaotic scenes, Ms Gillard lost her navy blue suede wedge shoe as she slipped during the mayhem, with a security official catching her. Activist Pat Eatock now holds the shoe as a trophy. Aboriginal protesters did plan to return the lost shoe but now have now decided to sell it on eBay. The protesters were inflamed earlier by alledged inflammatory comments made by Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott
