Margaret Thatcher once said, “such are our achievements that my employees have asked me to stay – twice!”
The current crop of the once conservative Liberal Party of Australia (called the Turnbull Coalition) can not attest to that. How Michaelia Cash hasn’t resigned for misleading parliament over the recent AWU scandal is beyond me. Then we have Christopher Pyne saying if the boundaries in his constituency are changed then the other member must make way for him. If a $50bn submarine deal to buy his seat at the last election only just saw Pyne scrape home, what on God’s earth does he think he has done to earn his employees’ faith?
The Turnbull Coalition is a dud in every sense of the word and without question we know that Turnbull will decide to leave the ‘political stage’ in the face of defeat to (in his eyes) an inferior opponent. Such is the fragility of the ego PM’s that he’ll actually view his legacy as paved with countless successes. I am struggling to think of one. Indeed were his employees happy with him they’d ask him to stay at the next election. Turnbull loves the limelight of being PM. Why would he give that up? Surely if he believes his own BS then he’d be the first to contest again in confidence that he would beat Shorten to The Lodge hands down.
Then we have Foreign Minister Julie Bishop who jets around the world cutting cheques to nearly anyone and pushed hard for the purchase of a seat at the UN on the Human Rights Council. Let us not forget that other parts of the UN thought Mugabe a worthy ambassador.
As a life long Liberal voter, there is no conscionable way for me to help elect these clowns until there has been a proper bleaching of all the stains within. There is hardly any whiff of sensibility within their ministerial ranks. Since Turnbull arrived he has divided a party, destroyed its foundations all the while his ministers have to resort to cheap shots and raids to expose the opposition as fraudsters rather than look within. Are their memories that short? It was only 10 years ago they were trying to smear Kevin Rudd for going to a strip club in New York! Who cares? Try running the country instead of trying to force your set of moral values!
It makes my blood boil to see the incompetence get shown on a daily basis. I will happily vote Liberal Party of Australia again once they come back to me. At present they are so far removed from the principles they once held that ‘Liberal’ is actually more aptly described as the derogatory term we give to the ‘left’ in America.
They need a proper drubbing at the next election to remind them how badly they have stuffed up. So caught in their own echo chamber, so on top of the electorate do they believe they really are they will find out that there is no way the ‘achievements of the government could in any way lead to the employees asking them to stay twice.
