Malcolm in the middle : Comments

By Robert Simms, published 23/10/2012

Turnbull is positioning himself as a moderate figure in the liberal tradition. In contrast to Abbott, he is not Howard reloaded.

Be careful what you wish for. Malcolm Turnbull as Prime Minister would behave exactly as Kevin Rudd did just ask anyone who tried to work with him under his leadership at the 1998 Constitutional Convention.

That's the whole point Garum Masala

Its the non-committed voter the Libs have to appeal to - and Abbott won't do it. I know plenty of Labor/Green voters who are unhappy with how things are going but would never consider voting Liberal while Abbott is leader - they would however if Turnbull was.

Malcolm Turnbull humiliated the arrogant British securocrats over the Spycatcher affair, and for that and for standing up for an Australian head of state he'd always have my vote if not for the company he is keeping in a party that would choose Tony Abbott as its leader.

I wonder if Lee Rhiannon would make a better Greens leader than Christine Milne. She's certainly positioning herself for it.

Care to write about that, Robert Simms? I thought not.
