    Liberal Party politicians have made it clear that they have no intention of acting upon the Liberal Party Council’s recent motions.

    No they won’t privatise the ABC - even if the Council voted in favour.

    No they won’t move the Oz embassy in Israel to Jerusalem - again, even though the Council voted in favour.

    What is the point in having a Party Council?

    Turnbull et al may as well chuck Liberal Party policy out the door and do whatever they like then. When it comes to policy alternatives in parliament, Turnbull is as weak as piss most of the time.

    The Liberal party is no longer fit for purpose. It’s just a leaderles bunch of suits with no direction and no spine. It’s time is over, once Labor gets into power and the CFMEU and AWU get the chance to spool up the corruption machine and the economy dives I have no doubt that one or more genuine grass roots conservative parties will begin to rise. They will split the vote which will assure Labor will keep power until they do so much economic damage that even they won’t be able to survive and by then Australia will be in such a state of energy poverty, social unrest, debt and radical left thought policing that it will be unrecoverable.

    Yes, it looks like the conservatives will be vanquished into the desert for many years. The ALP went through a similar event in the early 50's and that kept them off the Treasury benches for nigh on 25 years with one big different, Menzies and Co didn't wreck the economy.

    The survivalist thread might get more of a look in over the coming years.

    The Liberals sealed their fate when they rolled Tony Abbott and installed Turnbull. Abbott could take on Shorten because they are both brawlers and Abbot could keep Shorten in his box just as he did with Gillard. Shorten the union thug will be off the leash now and he and his socialist party will make sure that they strip mine everything that they can from the country to feed the union machine and to look after their Beijing handlers.

    1000% correct re Tony being rolled, but our leftie media (noting a few outlets and journos who actual report facts) will not talk about Mal knifing Tony, nor that when Tony was knifed, not one Lib member threw their toys out of the cot like Mal and Banks did and walk away cos of a change in leader. All banded behind Mal for good or bad at the time.

    Tony had one fault and that he tried to be "two Tony's....one Tony in the Parliament or in a public forum which many didn't see and Tony on TV who many saw. The first Tony was great, he flows, speaks his mind and commands the room...on TV he was scared to speak his mind, spoke carefully and looked wooden.....and that didn't sell. The left in the Libs are now picking off the true conservatives ie Molan demoted on the senate ticket, Craig Kelly being undermined for pre-selection, Dutton almost certain to face the High Court and the public move to oust Tony. I dislike Labour with every fibre of my being but they do a better job of sticking together and focusing on the goal than the Libs do.

    I think back to the 2010 election and the Rooty Hill Townhall meeting. Juliar sats perched like a queen on stage and spoke down to all and Tony got off the stage and spoke with the public (refer link). That night in my opinion helped the Libs draw level with Labour. Sadly I cringed every time I saw Tony on the ABC...two different Tony's. Yes, Tony was never as smooth as Menzies, Hawke, or Mal but he can connect with people. ScoMo maybe a "good bloke" but he is the Libs version of Kim Beasley....a benign teddy bear and will lose shape after a few hard hugs.




    BTW: Can anyone name any world leader who whilst running a country did as much public service as Tony in their own time? Can't imagine Mal or Bill doing a Sat am beach patrol or fighting bush fires with his local RFS crew...and what did the media do...bag Tony for his red speedos. Hope I as fit as him at his age.

    Subject to a miracle, Bill will be in the lodge thus the only hope is to not have Bill with the help of the Greens control the Senate. I prey the Libs and Cory get enough votes so at least they can block the crap he probably try and ram through...and if he needs the Greens to get the votes up, then things will really get bad as Bill kowtows to them and their watermelon policies.

    Prediction: If Labour can control the senate with the help of the Greens or leftie independents, watch the Labour Govt change policy on Huawei rethe 5G network.

    Abbot was much better then Turnbull because he was more against letting asylum seekers in. If I was PM not one asylum seeker would ever be allowed in and no immigration allowed from backward nations like Africa (except whites from SA) and Islamic ones.

    So if we only have the pollies for 10 days deliberations over the next 6 months, why do we need to employ them on an annual basis? Shouldn't the gig economy be good enough for them too?
