Abbott is no chance of leading again - I was never sure how he ever got the job anyway.

I found it hilarious that Turnbull conjured the ghost of Menzies to validate his "soft cock" centre stance - Menzies, who serenaded Her Majesty The Queen, Turnbull who wants to shiv her!LOL

Turnbull showing considerable political nous in announcing his preference for a more centrist party. That is where the votes are at election time. Abbott's ascendancy was just a case of voter fatigue at the shenanigans of the Labor Party. The public got a gut-full of Suppository Tony, quick smart. Turnbull does well to put as much political real estate as he can between himself and loons like Bernardi.

Yes your analysis sounds about right max, Abbott was simple timing ... ironic, since Malcolm seems to have absolutely no sense of timing! ... and whilst the closer he positions himself to the ALP, the better, you can guarantee that it will be the preferences of loons like Bernardi that will be the only thing to save us from Bullgelati Bill and oblivion.

Not sure who the Turnbull govt is listening at the moment but they are starting to make the right sounds. I suspect it is the new President, former moderate NSW Liberal Premier Nick Griener. Just heard Michael Keenan taking questions on Liberal Party internal divisions and was pleasantly surprised to hear him speaking candidly about it rather than the usual ''nothing to see here'' lines that defies credulity and pizzes people off who know what they are looking at and listening to.

Dear Mr. Turnbull as the official replacement for Mr. Abbott,
Instead of giving billions of dollars to car companies & other business that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
     You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:
There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.
Pay them $1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire.
     Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed
2) They MUST buy a new Australian car.
     Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
     Housing Crisis fixed
4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
     Crime rate fixed
5) They MUST buy $100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .......
     and there's your money back in duty/tax etc
6) Instead of stuffing around with the carbon emissions trading scheme that makes us pay for the major polluters, tell the greedy bastards to
reduce their pollution emissions by 75% within 5 years or we shut them down.
7) Cut down on pollies perks - they earn enough money to pay for their own petrol, food, drinks, airfares for their wives & families like all other hard working Aussies do. We pay big money but we still get MONKEYS.
8) No government credit cards for pollies - let them get their own then they will be more careful about how they use it and pay up on time so as not to incur interest.

   It can't get any easier than that!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances
Also ...
Let's put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.
This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.
They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.
     They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
     A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
     They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
     They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education
     Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request.
     Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens
     Each senior could have a PC a TV radio and daily phone calls.
     There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.
The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised.
Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room and pay $600.00 per week and have no hope of ever getting out.

     ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----
     THE AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq ......... Why don't we just give them ours?
     It was drawn up by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for centuries and we're not using it anymore.
     ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------
     THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
     The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse or Parliament, is this -
     You cannot adjudicate on 'Thou Shalt Not Steal',
'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and
'Thou Shall Not Kill' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians......
They would all be convicted.
I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”

There are only 12.1 million people in the workforce. I doubt that 10 million of those are over 50. Probably more like 2.1 million over 50.

Abbott looking like a "mental" these days, Labor had Latham, now the Libs have Tony, as an embarrassing reminder of how far off the track these parties can wander. The talent pool has never looked thinner in Canberra.

32%?

Abbott had an approval rating of 24% a year before winning in 2013.

That would make Shorten a certainty wouldn't it?
