Turnbullís 'caretaker' prime ministership: a looming electoral defeat? : Comments

By Glen Anderson and Alan Berman, published 12/4/2016

Rather than trusting Turnbull with another election cycle, segments of the electorate (including even the pro-Liberal commentariat), appear to be losing interest and contemplating a Shorten Labor government.

Happy to see this liberal government as a one term government. They need a bit more time in opposition thinking about how to run the country not how to win an election.

It would be great to see the nationals grow a pair and become a political party once again, rather then the liberals lap dog.

I get the feeling that The liberal party has a vision for Australian that most of us wouldn't like, and that's why they can't not articulate it very well.

Oh for a Tom Playford.

Deafeat for Turnbull and his Labor-like backers is well on the cards, and well deserved.

I don't know, maybe he is playing a long game. Perhaps he has a very cunning plan, a bit like Brer Rabbit, to lull the Labor party into etc., and then spring forward with devastating new policies, destroying Labor's chances with one powerful blow.

After all, he is always the smartest person in the room, isn't he :)

The LNP deserves nothing less than a complete wipeout at the polls.
Then they need to spend their time in opposition reversing the evil negativity and bile that rabbott brought to Australian politics.
If bipartisanship and co-operation are to return to political life, to replace the pointless politics of fear and muckracking, then it is the lieberals who have to take the first steps. After all it was the rightards who started all this gutter politics and hateful divisiveness. They should be the ones to change it.

Otherwise I support outright war on the right, via royal commissions and police investigations into their insider dealings, their collusion, their corruption, their lies and downright treason when it comes to their "wealth" hiding strategies.

Well, that's just one opinion or take!

All that prevents a Turnbull government being returned is inhouse infighting and internal whiteanting, by patently disloyal right wing control freaks, who don't seem to care if they destroy a once great party in the search for personal power? And they focus on his use of the party room and consensus to portray a man bereft of personal conviction?

And given the support in the right wing dominated media/opinion pieces, seem to be getting away with it?

For mine a few former ministers need to be sacked or just disendorsed and now, to shirt front home a message, stop with the whiteanting; and if you can't get on board with the program, get the hell off the ship!

We just don't need a repeat of the disastrous Gillard Campaign and the, "here to help" Kevin 07 and the leaks that created a hung parliament not able to get a mandate for its policies or program!

Abbott should just but out, or get another job and move on! His is not the sort of (former leader) "electoral help" a patently divided party needs at this critical time!

Albeit, Malcolm probably has far superior negotiating skills to that of his predecessor. And indeed some big ideas, some of the former ministers, were just too pea brained or timid to comprehend or implement?

The sooner we are rid of this bunch of incompetent,lying fools the better off we will be, they have nothing to offer at all and judging by the progress of the religious right in the Liberal party the Ayatollahs are not dead.
