IDEOLOGICALLY MALLEABLE, MAYBE
… in ScoMo we must trust
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.
