All things considered I still think she'd be a more palatable PM than Gillard.

My nutsack is more palatable than her in every respect.

So Scott Morrison wins it. I figured all the Turnbull backers would jump ship to him once a leadership change was made inevitable.

If ScoMo can get back some of that edge he had when he was Immigration Minister I think he might actually be able to give Shorty a bit of a walloping.

I'm quietly optimistic that he could be a decent, if boring, PM if he's given the chance; contrary to the increasingly tiresome conservative commentariat in this country who refuse to entertain the notion that anybody but Tony Abbott should be permitted to govern.

Though I liked his first speech as PM, I'm cautiously optimistic. I'm willing to give him a chance, if only because anything is better than Shorten getting the job.

Fuck me, I was right again. Shame I'm not a gambling man as I could've cleaned up on the back of The Donald and now ScoMo.

Every pundit who worships the polls is a dill. That also goes for the Liberal bedwetters who dumped Abbott for Turnbull on the basis of The Sacred Newspoll (there were other reasons to dump him, but I digress).

Anyway, the iron law of centre-right politics in this country is that you must build your narrative around the aspirational voters. Hardworking family people who don't get their views spoonfed to them through Facebook memes, aren't sure what gender fluidity actually is, and maybe don't like it when physically unattractive people with multicoloured hair tell them the world will end in 10 years if Australia doesn't shut down all industry. Turnbull thought the soy chai brigade would jump ship to him and he was wrong.

Never felt more patriotic than I did yesterday. Though what is concerning is that still, a vast group of Australians wanted a communist rapist as their PM. Good sense prevailed in QLD, thankfully.
