Today, the first day back in Parliament school, will start with a leadership vote. Not the best kick-off for Tony Abbott and the mature, sensible Liberal Government we were promised only 17 months back.
It’s kind of like a little election really, but for Liberals only.
He made a ‘Captains’ call’ to dub Prince Philip, Sir (backfired). He made another ‘Captains call’ to bring forward (by a day) the leadership vote which will determine if he’s in, out or on probation.
I think he’s still trying to take the intiative. An unplanned day with some angst and insecurity, how will the day end?
My points of ponder;
– Tony Abbott P.M. states often that he shouldn’t be turfed because that’s what Labour did to Kevin Rudd. Is that a sound reason for keeping him in the job?
– Are his colleagues, cabinet and backbenchers worried about the direction Abbott has been taking Australia, or worried about losing their jobs?
Word for today; Karma – or is it Ying and Yang?
More to come; same blog time, same blog channel.
News flash; Tony Abbott survives leadership spill.
