The SS Credlin (Tony’s chief of staff) slowly sinks below the waves, torpedoed not by the enemy but by her mighty captain (battlelines) Abbott.
There will of course be some screaming and shouting as someone has to take the blame for giving that English ‘nong’ an Australian knighthood – an oxymoron if ever there was one.
However the real question outside of the shifting of blame and responsibility is what happens next?
The weathercock is turning south northwest dear readers – more than expected as Abbott, while he will continue to survive in the very short term, is no longer re-electable.
To be fair he (our PM) gave us a lot of entertainment in his very short span. Perhaps that was the right recipe given the sour doses of Julia and Rudd we all had to swallow and put up with for way, way too long; anyway it’s all over for all those concerned.
The rise of Malcom Turnbull thus continues unabated (perhaps he will also write a book: I Did it My Way?)
