IT TAKES A GENIUS TO MAKE SHORTEN LOOK GOOD WHILE LOSING A 30 SEAT COALITION MAJORITY
... have we underestimated Turnbull’s genius?
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.
Not only that but he has ensured six more years for some of the most moronic senators ever to grace the upper House and a Double Dissolution that could easily backfire with the distinct possibility that a joint sitting could lack the numbers to pass one single Bill! And this bloke has been able to achieve all this in less than a year. Remarkable effort!
If it wasn’t for the Libs looking certain to win the vacant WA seat of Canning there would not have been a Turnbull coup. Had Turnbull left it until after that Saturday by election, Abbott would have been seen as a winner again... Turnbull and Bishop’s numbers would not have been there, the coup would not have occurred.
Abbott has been the Libs’ winningest PM ever and it has cost him and Australia dearly. His record election majority exposed him to a pile of nervous Nellies on the back bench whose Party room votes were integral in bringing him down.
Malcolm Turnbull and Julie Bishop took advantage of the situation and moved at the time Abbott was at his most vulnerable. But around mid-term a Prime Minister is usually at a low ebb.
How the treacherous Libs can look a camera in the lens and appear as tho’ all is normal is a mystery.
They know that Abbott was a victim of his own electoral success and the champagne only lasted a day after the 2013 election before the plotting began.
Abbott is far smarter than Turnbull and Turnbull is far less loyal than Abbott. Abbott would never have brought on a DD election to be held AFTER what needs to be a nothing election year budget. The window for a DD closed around the time that he was deposed last year.
I’m not sure if, like a praying mantis, a stick insect also chews off the heads of its partners but I sure recall a stick insect bouncing her way up the corridor before clicking her heels and skipping to a flying change before turning right into Abbott’s office to tell him to pack his gear... the gratification was doubled with the demise of the hated Peta Credlin.
Turnbull will most likely lead the Coalition to an embarrassingly small victory when a victory over the likes of Shorten should have been equal to that of Abbott’s victory over Rudd. The Champagne will be scarce in the joint Party room as the Turnbull crew tally up the losses.
When Lib backbenchers moved against Abbott to save their own necks they actually signed their own death warrants. They put themselves in the hands of the dishonest Liberal lees.
The political tragedy is that even a tiny Turnbull victory will immediately allow him to turn Left to embrace gay marriage, a carbon tax, increased Islamic immigration, expensive green energy "initiatives" and a republic.
Debt and budget deficits will be of little concern to Turnbull.
It’s clear that neither Turnbull nor the media understands the depth of feeling against him. “The disenchanted Liberal voters will return to the fold come election time”, said Lib heavyweight Michael Kroger. Well, Michael, it’s a bit different this time. Anti Islam feeling is at fever pitch and disloyalty is not seen as a virtue.
There are well organised parties in the wings that intend to clip his.
Reliable reports show that the ALA Party is fielding multiple senate candidates across the country and multiple Lower House candidates are being pre-selected from a host of eager national applicants.
Puppet reporters are neglecting research in favour of aping their media colleagues’ contention that these are mere fringe groups and will have no effect. But there are no decent reporters left now to uncover the truth even if they wanted to.
As newspapers die an agonising death, tabloid reporters are relying on cut and paste copy that reflects their dishonest ABC and the Left’s blogs. Even radio is failing the public and without researchers is also getting it all wrong.
Polling is purposefully inaccurate with editors splitting Islamic concern votes from immigration concerns. When both are combined, naturally Islam is the number one concern, but apparently that is too politically incorrect to show the real figures.
The fact that Bill Shorten is polling even close to the Coalition is an indictment on Turnbull’s leadership. At least Abbott with his admitted faults stayed loyal to his ministers even when it became clear many were not loyal to him.
Turnbull’s loyalty is restricted only to himself and his Left ideology. And the worst of him will be seen after this coming election.
