Stories about "Malcolm Turnbull":

Some insights from Malcolm Turnbull

From the deceptive and underhanded conduct of our current Prime Minister ScMo, to the destructive impact of Tony Abbott and the far right of the Australian political and media scene, A Bigger Picture, by Malcolm Turnbull, provides an interesting insight into how he perceives the Australian political landscape.

Thus Spake Mungo: Foley trumps Turnbull as the media highlight

Just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean people don’t hate you. It sometimes seems that Malcolm Turnbull is being pursued by that old Al Capp character Joe Btfsplk, who brought bad luck to everyone near him.

Thus Spake Mungo: Malcolm muddles offstage

In the end Malcolm Bligh Turnbull left the office just as he managed it – in appeasement, denial, dithering, procrastination, bluster, bravado, resentment and eventual capitulation.

Having been rabbiting on for weeks about energy, Malcolm Turnbull has finally managed to summon up a little for himself.

Thus Spake Mungo: Tony Abbott’s vanity project

For most of the time, it hadn’t been a bad week for Malcolm Turnbull. For starters, it was a non-sitting week, which meant that he didn’t have to spend much public time with the bumblers, urgers and saboteurs sitting around him on the government benches.

Thus Spake Mungo: Bye bye Bernardi

In less exciting times, many in the Liberal Party – probably most – would have viewed the defection of Cory Bernardi with more relief than dismay. Understandably, they regard the South Australian senator as a royal (or at least monarchist) pain in the arse.

Thus Spake Mungo: Trump trumps Turnbull

Malcolm Turnbull declares determinedly that he is not a political animal. Well, perhaps not: maybe he is a political vegetable, silent and immobile, fed on copious amount of bullshit. It is hard to imagine a week that went so far off the rails, or one in which the management of hope and expectation went so awry.
