This ScoMo is a fantastic PM.

Day 1: Elected
Day 2: descares drought areas a priority.
Day 3: Rain, over 5omm in some areas.

What next: Now that we have water, he will be visiting country areas to walk on it.

too true

quote:
The architects of Mr Turnbull’s demise do deserve to be condemned, chief among them Mr Abbott, whose infamous pledge not to wreck, snipe at or undermine his successor now reads like a sad joke.

But that staggering hypocrisy has been matched, if not exceeded, by Mr Turnbull himself.

If the then outgoing prime minister had any semblance of self-awareness, he would have left criticism of the mutineers to someone else.

Mr Turnbull had no problem with disloyalty when he was the one being disloyal.

He voiced no objection to tearing down a prime minister when it served his own ambition.

He wasn’t the least bit bothered by wrecking and undermining when he was using those tactics to obtain power for himself.

So instead of whining, perhaps Mr Turnbull should have used his speech to reflect on what he had done to contribute to his own downfall.

There was no mention of his failure to give the government a compelling purpose.

Nothing about the policy thought bubbles that led nowhere.

Not a word about the bland, rudderless election campaign that reduced his government’s majority to a single seat.

No recognition of the irony that he was calling his leadership “progressive” after years of pandering unsuccessfully to the party’s right wing.

None of it was his fault, because as far as Mr Turnbull is concerned, nothing ever is.

This is not a defence of the rebels, whose stunningly incompetent coup proved to be not only ugly, but utterly pointless.

It resulted in the elevation of Scott Morrison, a man who will do little to change the government’s policies or direction. The alternative, Peter Dutton, offered the visage and all the charisma of a potato.

A more honourable man than Mr Turnbull would deserve our sympathy for falling victim to such a gormless mess. This shameless hypocrite should receive none.

What would have Hadley and Jones got out of their fanboyish support for Dutton?

So Scott Morrison has failed in his first test as a leader! Dutton should be dismissed for abusing his powers to look after 3 French nannies for his mate's who just happen to donate massive sums of money to the Liberal party! This one fails the pub test Scott! Get rid of Dutton!

Abbott as 'special envoy' I know he is 'special', but did Morrison give him that job in the hope he would get lost somewhere in the Great Victoria Desert? hahaha

Dutton- The minister for Foreign Au pairs!

Shame he is not the PM.... Tough but fair, he has been described as on here...so that'd be- Tough on people of color...but fair for his former colleagues and mates....who need a favor!

I imagine he considers Trump to be an idol of his.

There you go. It wasn't the unpopularity of Malcolm that led to the leadership spill. It was intervention from up above, that not only caused the spill, but also helping ScoMo across the line.
