    So, ScMo has a lot of political capital now in the LNP and the cancers are out of the party.

    With Hockey coming home from the US come Jan 2020, what chances Tony Abbott after a nice long holiday, is tapped to become next Australian Ambassador to the USA. I suspect a good fit to voice ScMo's policies to DJT.

    While i am sure this was uploaded as a piss take id be of the view that i actually agree with the prime minister a guy like that is actually someone you would want on your team.
    He was just showing a complete commitment to his boss and if more people acted like that ,GENUINELY of course then the world would be a much better place.

    I thought he was displaying himself as the puppet he is, with no integrity or logic, allowing his strings to be pulled by the party hierarchy..... exactly the characteristics that got him belted by a much smarter Australian public in the election.

    Agree completely. This type of political mumbo jumbo never passes the so-called "pub test". Shorten showed himself as an obedient apparatchik and there's no way back to foreman material from there.

    Coupled with Shorten's missing political charisma, he was a giant gift to the LNP. The Libs just had to campaign on "vote for ScoMo, he's not Shorten", actually it seemed like "vote for me, I'm not Shorten" since everyone else in the Libs just seemed to disappear in case anyone asked if they had any policies to offer, which they evidently did not.

    Actually the Libs had a killer slogan that I only saw once - "A Bill Australia Cannot Afford", but with Shorten's leadership deficits they likely decided they were gilding the lily!

    Now it's reported Shorten is trying to influence the vote for the new Labor Leader. A neat underline as to why he never won a preferred Prime Minister poll, not once, even as the Libs churned through their 3 leaders in some sort of House of Cards parody. What a spectacle Dutton vs Shorten would have been.

    Welcome to history Bill: Labor's biggest loser who snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, and killed off big policies in election platforms from here forward. No doubt to forevermore to be known as Rudd's revenge in Labor's internal history of electoral follies. If only the party could have sacked him it would be PM "Albo" now. :D

    Would 'Albo' as party leader have changed me putting labor 2nd last in front of the greens?

    NO

    Neither do baseless, shytehouse socialist tax-you-to-within-an-inch-of-your-life policies which jeopardise the good of the majority, and hit hardest in their working-class base.
    It was the golden quinella for the LNP.
    I honestly didn't think anyone could be worse than Gillard... but Bill way outranked her in the bad stakes.
