IDEOLOGICALLY MALLEABLE, MAYBE

… in ScoMo we must trust

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

The elevation of Scott Morrison will not please all Conservatives. But it’s the best that can be expected considering that Turnbull’s disregard for convention gave the Dutton haters time to garner votes in the second rundown ballot after the hapless Stick Insect ran as a pacer.

But no need to gnash teeth or slash wrists, ScoMo has runs on the board as a Right of Centre operator. He loyally did the job with Sovereign Borders that Abbott gave him and then loyally served Turnbull well in Treasury. He gets the job done, and he's good at it.

We cannot expect the ABC to be sold off, nor can we expect Islamic immigration to be stopped. We cannot expect to see the Paris Accord dumped considering that Friedanegg is now his deputy. But we can expect to see both quietly wander away from the worst of Paris.

                           Both are deeply religious and both have a love for Oz.

It’s to be hoped that the guidance they seek from above will be followed because God knows Paris is the devil incarnate. The blind addiction to the Global Warming God of the Left that Turnbull worshipped has gone and a fresh look at the reality of energy is on the cards.

If I am wrong I will apologise but I do believe we will now avoid the worst of Green and hard Left Labor’s excesses. He may be a fraction pink but I see him as a Conservative, pragmatic, sleeping socialist.

Chins up… Dutton did not have the majority he needed after all and Turnbull gave his offsiders the time they needed after they threw their hats in the ring. The runoff was always going to be his downfall as Turnbull supporters (40 of them) switched their votes to ScoMo.

With Turnbull only three votes from hanging on as PM, we should be grateful.

Turnbull has won this round and has left the Liberal Party in the mess he wanted. My predictions of Turnbull’s partnership with Shorten are borne out by Shorten’s incredibly soulful eulogy to his “Liberal” partner Turnbull who had joined him on the path to a UN New World Order. 

It was a loving requiem that has not come from the Liberals, but from Labor, and indicates Turnbull's partnership with the Left at the expense of Liberal values.

Don't expect the same "love in" between Shorten and ScoMo.  

And thank God Turnbull has gone so we can now sleep a little sounder sans nightmares.

I see there was a Mens' Rights march and it had opposition with violence. Silly men should have had a few dressed as Muzzies; that would have fucked those in opposition not knowing what to do. The feminists would have been in turmoil ;-)

In his farewell speech Turnbull did not make one mention of our farmers and the drought. It was all about himself. He thanked all those who were loyal to him.

AND THE NEW TREASURER IS , .... PETER COSTELLO !

HUH ?

Now we have a Jewish deputy PM expect to see many more posts from Moses Ludowitz, the Pelican's Mossad ghost poster

Turnbull was as bad as Gillard and Rudd

I'm not saying it is rough where I live but I see the local Coles are selling Father's Day cards in packs of five.

Did somebody hear Tony Abbott saying: “He's 'never had so much fun in his life”.

‘Return Abbott to the cabinet’
Q Time
TESS LIVINGSTONE
Former PM John Howard has urged Scott Morrison to field his “very best” team and return Tony Abbott to the frontbench.

George & Paul are going to talk to a chap this morning about online/over the phone credit/debit card security fraud that is happening (80% plus), without giving out the 3 digit security code.

They are asking if online/over the phone security fraud is happening WITHOUT the 3 digit security code given, what is the point of giving it out? The crooks have everything then.

Ahh the feeling of a new day which promises unbridled promise and optimism for the unity and prosperity of this nation’s future. Finally a leader who unites and ... oh shit sorry I had my keyboard switched to opposite mode.

Buckethead vision of being in The Lodge fading into oblivion. Scomo will eat him alive, as in the past.

Now this is funny.............

Lemming and Entsch need to go on a very slow, long boat ride into oblivion.Turnbull is toast you pair of idiots.

Another insight into Turnbull from Richard Alston immediate past president of the Liberal Party and was deputy Senate leader and a senior cabinet minister in the Howard government.

https://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/inquirer/malcolm-turnbull-how-a-toff-out-of-water-became-our-loner-pm/news-story/3733f065142f09bba4aa8764108e0771

Malcolm Turnbull was never a good fit for politics. It is common to portray him as a Labor wolf in a Liberal sheep’s clothing, but I think the truth is more complex. Never a team player, always a sole trader, he was a political interloper chasing the ultimate trophy, but with very few political convictions.

If Graham Richardson is right that Turnbull once pleaded to be on the NSW Labor Senate ticket, it does not mean that he was particularly committed to the Labor Party, which was more likely a mere flag of convenience. Knocking around with the Sydney push of Gough Whitlam, Neville Wran and company probably made Turnbull rich and comfortable with that side of politics, but in reality he was a man on a personal mission.

Nothing better demonstrated his preference for his own brand ahead of any party brand than the posters that have been around his electorate for years proclaiming “Turnbull for Wentworth” — no mention of Liberal.

Frydenberg has reportedly said he will seek guidance from Peter Costello in his new role as Treasurer.

Dennis Shanahan.

Paraphrasing ...

The spill of leadership happened because most of the Liberals wanted Turnbull gone.


When Turnbull first called the PM position open, he did so to catch Dutton off quard. He knew by the results (42-35) that he was gone.


It was the most extraordinary set of circumstanses I have ever seen in politics (the second challenge). All the antics of getting signatures etc was a ploy by Turnbull to give his candidate (Morrison) time to get the numbers to beat Dutton.


Scott Morrison is a compromised candidate. He is Turnbull's annointed choice so comes with a lot of baggage.


Some in the Liberal Party are saying 'we wanted two things, to be rid of Turnbull, and Peter Dutton to be PM; we got one of the things, so we are happy with that.'

Larry you have gone soft in the head. But I still love you.
