The sad part about the recent so-called challenge of Tony Abbott’s uninspiring leadership of the Australian democracy was the equally uninspiring total lack of guts exhibited by his Liberal opponent, Malcolm Turnbull.
Worse however was Turnbull’s media statement that he considered the last federal election as plebiscite on the question of climate change and the matter was now off his agenda.
The Liberal Party’s funding/favours department is underwritten by the Murdoch press and the commercial lobbyists against climate change.
I once though Turnbull had distinguished himself and had what it took to be a real leader of our country when he stood against these interests, at a time when the Australian people were duped.
Recent events however have proven Mr Turnbull was burnt by the bitter political experience of losing the leadership of the Liberal Party over the issue in December 2009 did not get stronger and now sadly is not worth voting for any more than the incompetent, narrow minded, egotistical Tony Abbott.
