Someone should totally do a GIF or a website with a "chocolate wheel" featuring the faces of our last 4 Prime Ministers (Rudd, Gillard, Abbott and Turnbull), as well as Julie Bishop, Warren Truss, Shorten and Plibersek, labelled "Who's Australian Prime Minister today?" #auspol
just has to be the laughing stock of the world. Four PMs in the space of less than three years? Really?
How much is the system to blame, how much media and how much the voting public? Governments will never achieve change in a single term, a minimum of two is needed to clean up previous gummint messes, implement change, and then see it out / continue on. Yet the parties end up focussing on popularity polls to determine the course of policy and leadership, providing instability and uncertainty.
Governing is about sometimes having to make unpopular decisions in the greater interest of the country, but then being able to sell it. I think Abbott was a dick, inarticulate, and hopeless as a true leader. I see Turnbull as a calculating and possibly manipulating person who might just be able to steer the Coalition to a victory in 12 months time.
Buh-bye Tony. #libspill #whostheaustralianpmtoday
