It's a pretty sad state of affairs when the choices are limited to the Honourable Member for Asbestos or 🎩 Turnbull. It's not personality that is the problem, it's Liberal policy. Let's get real, Bishop is in a privileged position as Foreign Minister as she can avoid domestic policy turmoil in the media to a greater extent than her colleagues. She would be as bad as Abbott and Turnbull have been given the chance.
If they rubbish her half as badly as they did Gillard, I hope she gets a go. She'll be as useless as the rest, unfortunately she'd be treated with kid gloves.
I'm not sure I'd accuse Julie Bishop of ever displaying a personality.I don't know why she'd be a good choice. She seems to know nothing about her own portfolio.
Better than Turnbull is no great recommendation.She has no heart and has happily seen off previous leaders whilst pretending to be their greatest support.It would be DISASTER time in Australia for working people if she was to lead.
If it wasn't such a horrific thought, I'd laugh too. Whatever God or omniscient presence you pray to, pray that this malevolent evil keeps away from the Lodge.
Its as Australia is under a god damn spell. Every bit of Australias government is tainted in lies and poison. All to line their own pockets not the simple folks pockets. Basically screw us
the Melbourne Club wouldn't allow it. I can hear the clatter of false teeth into whiskey glasses... a woman for PM? in the Liberal Party? unthinkable
She states if Bill Shorten gets in being a union man he will do what they want. If course the Libs don't regard such organisations as the Chamber of Commerce is a union by any other name or organisations if there ilk.
Ah yes! Good old JBish! Remember the asbestos days?? Others can't? They died before getting their day in court. No help from Julie who questioned why their cases should be brought forward just because they were dying?
Remember she complained when defending James Hardy Asbestos claims that the dying workers were being given preference in trials bought forward. Dying workers in court harder to deal with. Dead ones easy.
Looks like a spoiled child if you can’t take the heat get out if you kept it in your pants this wouldn’t happen or remember condoms 😈
Ermm, yes! My Deputy is a great deputy leader, it's just that I won't allow him to have the keys to my Beemer while I'm away.
Best case result is a falling out and separation of the coalition between the libs and nats. Neither of them would even come close to having the seats required to lead without the other.
Just look at this moron u are a disgrace stop trying to pass the buck u are the one that couldn’t keep it zipped up u are the one that has caused harm to your family I hope your wife takes u to the cleaners
Gee I wish he would shove that hat up his ass so sick of seeing the shit on that head of his . If only he could see his self in the thing looks like a clown dressed up.
Malcom's personal and public ineptitude has nothing to do with the hypocrisy, misogyny, family wrecking abilities that Mr Beetroota has displayed while arrogantly spending public monies on getting his end in.
Heard someone say tonight at a party,that Turncoat is the only politician that isn’t in it for the money, only the power. On top of that little gem he said that Howard was the best because he made his family wealthier. Enough said ...
Can They shut up and all of them either resign or be sacked. Being sacked would be better then They go No Super, and No perks. That is what should happen
Nah. This is a set up between them and a distraction. They are orchestrating this into a battle bt Lib/nat Turdbull/joyce to distract. They'll keep this up to get the focus off the corruption of the job creation and travel expense rorts and then they will reconcile. Don't allow them to dictate this. Labour should be pushing hard but aren't.
"[The Nationals ha]ve stuck by Joyce – they think he’s the best they’ve got". Pretty damning comment on the talent available in their party, isn't it?
Nothing has changed... Turncoat heard the drums from us plebs and he decided to to "ANOTHER BACKFLIP".... Turncoat has mastered the Backflips when he feels Extremely Out of His Depth.... lol :D
Worried about the looming polls and trying to appear to be doing something?Only 4 polls to go. I reckon at 28 or 29th the PM will call an election and go down fighting rather than stand down.
No principles, no morals, no concern for anyone else except himself! A disgrace as a man and a disaster as a politician! He must go! Slinking away for a weeks leave hoping everyone will forget, won’t work! Sack him!
Pathetic “whataboutism” from RWNJs who can’t defend Joyce’s hypocrisy and egotistical behaviour. So they attack non- conservatives because that will somehow make everything right. The fact is that only someone like Joyce would inspire a change to ministerial guidelines because of bad personal and professional judgement.
Joyce is on borrowed time. No one did this to him- he did it to himself by using his personal power and that of his office to engage in completely inappropriate behaviour at a significant cost to the Australian taxpayer. Wait until Senate Estimates and the true scope of his rort will be revealed.
65% of voters surveyed by Newspoll think he should resign as Nationals leader. I would go one better- he should leave Parliament, full stop. This has never been about what’s good for the Australian people, but only what’s good for Barnaby.
He should leave in disgrace for acting like such a pompous, narcissistic git.
Reading back last week...Labor Party are shutting up as slme of them have done exactly the same thing over the years...NOT just limited to Liberals.
Turntable and his merry band of fouls need to go. oh before they do at least get back the 32 billion dollars that the big corporations company's have gotten away without paying in taxes..
Two jokes - and me still not laughing. They BOTH conned the tax payer over all this. They both knew about it in advance of the by election. They both misled the voters
Sadly IPA has given LNP a belief that with the support of Big Business they can do no wrong .. but it is well over due to come crashing down. Australians are waking up!
They just have to put the blame on Labor soon. Otherwise how can this rubbish go on without Labor copping the full force of the blame.
If the Nats insist that Barnaby must stay, Turnbull would look so weak that the knives would be out for him. This has the capacity to make the Liberal party implode because the Turnbull supporters will not cop the type of leader that would snuggle up to the beetroot.
No doubt Joyce is a cretin but there is also now no doubt, and i rarely swear, but Turnbull is a low down, mongrel turd, what a spineless white supremist he is.
No sympathy for the greedy sycophant, particularly if he has difficulty managing his finances. In 3 weeks, he earns more than my pension pays me in one year and more than half my weekly allowance disappears in rent. I have never been offered rent-free accommodation and will be renting for the rest of my life.
We all have to face life's challenges. I feel for him, myself being currently job seeking due to the worries of no income. There is a difference, if only a small one - I have never once in my life earned more than 1/4 the amount he has been taking in for the last 20 years or so taking into account parliamentary allowances for stuff the rest of us would just expect to pay ourselves.
He’s going to need a reasonable amount of money in order to pay child support for at least 2 of his children .!Not to mention the new baby son .!
Did Joyce’s daughter get free accommodation as well. Remember Abbott’s daughter’s college arrangements. These conservatives are sponges and never pay for anything despite their high incomes.
There will be more corruption allegations to surface they have only just lifted the lid on this can of worms, you could tell the PM was also a bit of a victim of the malignant Joyce on a trail of lies and deceit.Mr Turnbull should take further steps and use his knowledge political law to refine many loop holes being abused and try to regain a little respect for their kind because they are there to serve the Aussie people not to line their pockets.
It looks like sherif shot himself but he did not shoot his deputy! 😉😜 The "grown ups" are definitely behaving like they are enjoying a lot of wacky tabbacky! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XiYUYcpsT4&feature=share
Mr Turnbuckles does not want to lose the National parties allegiance. Without their support he cannot be in government. This is why he is standing up for his mate. It all stinks.
When I used to travel for work in Canberra I used to stay at a little motel a short distance from Parliament House. I remember one night talking to the owner about occupancy rates. He told me he was running about 114% full when parliament was sitting. When I asked him how his occupancy rate could be over 100%, he replied, that some of the politicians would sometimes come down to his motel three or four times a day.
The funny thing is that I don’t know if he was fair dinkum or not.
Mr Turnbull knows the real problem for him is the corruption involved in giving the young lady the extra jobs. He knows he's in that. So he's saying "Look over there! I'm banning bonking". I don't really care who bonks who, but I am concerned about Mr Joyce's and Mr Turnbull's corruptly giving out jobs to mates. Both guilty.
