tim matheison (4)
alister jordan (6)
kirribilli house (8)
quentin bryce (11)

It’s not all about Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard though. Australians are also searching for other key figures in Australian politics including:

quentin bryce (Governor General) - 11th fastest rising

Tellingly, of the top 100 fastest rising terms in Australia, 90 of them were related to the political situation or to news sites covering the event.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
