If you’ve picked up a paper, watched the nightly news, listened to the radio on the way too work, you would be absolutely sick of talk about a possible leadership spill in the liberal party…and the possibility of the return of Abbott. However after polls show that Abbott is still not as popular this challenger is likely to rise…
The names in the ring of rumours are senior conservative Peter Dutton…
Support is drastically changing for Turnbull, with several conservative Coalition MPs speaking out to vent their frustrations about policies on climate change, energy and the Gonski 2.0 schools’ funding overhaul in recent weeks, with Mr Abbott leading the charge.
The heir apparent for conservatives is now locked in: Peter Dutton. Many conservatives were once prepared to face an “honourable defeat” under Turnbull and have Dutton the next cab off the rank…however in growing speculation of betrayal, and possible implosion of what once was Australia’s strongest conservative party…attitudes are changing.
Internal factional tensions absolutely exploded last week over frontbencher Christopher Pyne’s comments on same sex marriage and the rise of the party’s left, and who waltzed in the calm the waters…none other than Immigration Minister Peter Dutton, he acknowledged the Liberals needed to move on or it would “consume” them. This does two things…falsely reassure Malcolm about his intentions, and paint himself as a senior figure who can “unite” the party.
After Turnbull’s arrogant comments today, which included “I’m going to be the PM for a very long time” I am hoping and praying that someone takes his place before it’s too late. A Turnbull government will be the worst thing for this country, especially if you look into the past of the left – wing sympathiser who truly believes in that of a global community over sovereignty.
History is also repeating itself as Nationals MP George Christensen even said some marriage equality supporters among the Liberals were ready to cross the floor. You don’t have to look back too far to remember when Turnbull did the very same thing in his protest against “lack” of climate change policy. The moderates once again showing just how left – wing they are, and how out – of – touch they are with their conservative base.
Let’s hope that in the coming months we start to see the chances of Turnbull ousted rise! After all the very excuse he used to oust Abbott is now apparent for himself…the Turnbull Government has now trailed Labor in 14 consecutive polls. That gives Malcolm Turnbull a year and a half (if not sooner) to turn things around completely.
Now we want to send Turnbull a message, so we’ve created a poll a “real news” poll fro preferred LNP leader, between Turnbull, Dutton and Abbott. So fill it out and we’ll be sure to send it in to the right people 😉
