Tell me what's wrong with these titles?

The Hon Tony Abbott MP
Leader of the Opposition
January 31, 2013
11.30am - 1.30pm
"Address to the National Press Club"
Prime Minister Julia Gillard
Prime Minister of Australia
January 30, 2013
11.30am - 1.30pm
"The Prime Ministers Address to the National Press Club"
What's wrong with these titles the National Press Club has been using to advertise its gigs in Canberra today and tomorrow. Yep, you guessed it. While Tony Abbott is given his correct moniker minus the “MP”, Julia Gillard is not. She’s The Hon Julia Gillard MP Prime Minister of Australia” to everyone but her family and friends if you’re being polite.
