I really hope Chairman Mal, Julie Bishop, Scott Morrison, Wyatt Roy, George Brandis, Christopher Pyne and all the rest of the traitors are happy, now that they have brought the Liberals to the brink of defeat.
Certainly Wyatt Roy will have plenty of time to reflect on his treachery, having been voted out of his seat – good. By the way, the Centrelink office is two blocks down on your left…
As I wrote back in September 2015, when the shameful assassination of Tony Abbott took place:
Ever since Tony pipped him at the post in December 2009, Malcolm has been plotting and scheming to get the job he believes he deserves. And now, thanks to the treachery of Julie Bishop (and many others), he has achieved his goal.
Turnbull complained that Abbott’s performance had not improved since February, whilst at the same time he and Bishop were both leaking like a sieve to destabilise him in the background. With a constant stream of leaks is it any wonder Abbott’s recovery was thwarted.
Finally, of course, the Lefty hate media (ABC and Fairfax) have successfully portrayed Abbott as some knuckle-dragging, misogynistic, neanderthal thug, someone who does not merely hold different opinions, but is genuinely evil.
So what happens now? If the Coalition manage to scrape a majority, Turnbull’s credibility is gone.
Who can replace him? Scott Morrison? No, because he was too eager to switch sides to Malcolm after initially supporting Abbott in the spill, i.e. he was bought with the promise of Treasurer. Julie Bishop? No – because she destroyed the meaning of the phrase ‘loyal deputy’. Peter Dutton? Maybe… Kevin Andrews? Too boring.
Or maybe a certain T Abbott might be persuaded to step in…
Here are a couple of Aussie Madness posts from the time of the leadership spill:
