Can anyone convince me that it is even worth voting?

Relevance?

You're posting on a BB using a screen name to others who don't care what you think. If you think relevance is a player here, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

lol. Ok, enlighten us all on your inside knowledge into Tony Abbotts 'character assassination' in the broader view of Australian politics.

Oh wait. You're just trolling as usual. Understood

Well only because you get fined if you don't.

Mind you once your name is crossed off the list you can write whatever you want on the forms.

Here's some reading for ya Hempy:

Stop Turnbull | Malcolm Turnbull is a dangerous ideologue of the left-progressive variety

Dont know how accurate it is cause I've only just come across it. Though it shows whats to come.

It has been unusually entertaining listening to the radio today. It might be said there are some very unhappy campers out there. The big question will be how many will maintain the rage come the election?

I think few will vote informal as today they're threatening to, but many will give their first vote to a smaller party or an independent so that their vote reaches the Libs only eventually.

The other big question is what will happen to Turnbull six to eight months from now if he hasn't managed to pull off his promised miracle with the economy? (Which I don't believe he will be able to, if only because the Senate will not change their spots just because Tony Abbott is gone.)

I think Turnbull will push the party to the left. I have been streaming 2gb today, and the outcry against him is incredible. Some very unhappy campers out there at the moment. It will be interesting to see what the next few months bring.

Hmmm... I suspect an early election so-as to restrict the 'alternatives' and make use of the media 'honeymoon'. Though, December will have to be bedded down first..

You have to hand it To Malcolm, been in the job 2 mins and he's already saved us $300,000 by getting rid of Blabbott 4 days shy of his two years service as PM.

Mrs Turnbull looks to be a real asset too. don't think the last one did much but visit an op shop a couple of times!!

That's because good ole Margie Abbott knows that her place is doing the ironing...

I've got to admire the conviction of the posters here who seemingly would rather have watched the Abbott Coalition get obliterated at the next election than see Malcolm Turnbull as PM. I suppose another term of mixed Greens and Labor government would have given you all a lot more to whinge about! I for one am looking forward to a period of sensible government once we have that caricature TA formally dismissed from the PM office.

Huff all you will about informal voting and sending your preferences to truly RWNJ fringe parties, ultimately this was the Coalition's only shot at credibility next election. I wonder how the Canning by-election will go now? Not nearly as big a swing if any I expect.

Turnbull's honeymoon is already over. His party expects him to perform, immediately. They will not be patient with him.

He has to implement the published Liberal party policies on which the government was elected, no matter how much he might disavow them personally, and he has to do it quickly. He does not have a mandate to do otherwise. (In fact, he has no mandate at all because he has not presented himself to the electorate and achieved a majority vote for his party.)

If he tries to implement his personal left-wing agenda, his support in the party-room and the Cabinet will evaporate and he will be rolled in turn.

For Malcolm Turnbull, it is now very much a case of "Piss, or get off the pot!"

Yep, there is also the mater of the Goldman Sachs 'confidential' agreement.
How is it an Australian Prime Minister has a confidential anything ? especially with a bank..

We need to know more...

"...Malcolm Turnbull looks set to emerge from his long court case over HIH Insurance with his former employer, the Goldman Sachs merchant bank, making a confidential settlement on his behalf.
The NSW Supreme Court yesterday granted the plaintiff and eight parties being sued, including Goldman Sachs and Mr Turnbull, an extension of time until May 7 to finalise the settlement..."

Interesting perspective criticalmass, perhaps more appropriately suited for posting more than one day after Malcolm is sworn in by the governor-general.

I find your lack of understanding of the Westminster parliamentary system intriguing also.

I understand Tony's citizenship status remains confidential also. How very outrageous

Binghi, any chance of posting anything relevant to 2015? Or do you just spend your days searching the internet for anything slightly 'controversial' in the hope of passing it off as 'todays news'?

2009 was a long time ago. Surely you can do better than that?

chuboy, I think I'm not alone in believing that, with his apparent inability to bring forth his inner mongrel and kick arse and sack people who richly deserved to be sacked (many of whom were instrumental in his sacking), Tony Abbott should have been replaced. My problem is with whom he has been replaced. Damn near anyone would have been preferable to Malcolm Turnbull.

And I believe that that will become very apparent to those who have put him in as leader all too soon.

I am glad that Abbott whilst telling the world that there would be no sniping managed to keep his snipes to a minimum, and only two flags
