It’s an election, not the apocalypse

Crikey readers talk the genius of David Frost and the Roman electoral system and issue a sensible warning to keep the election in perspective.

One thought on “It’s an election, not the apocalypse

  1. Peterpan


    Malcolm T is on on the end because he has not forgotten the one point party meeting and is waiting to take the P.M. position, once all the hard work is done.
    The Liberal Party will dump Tony Abbott at first opportunity and install Malcolm Turnbull as P.M. This will please Murdoch (think Foxtel) and all power brokers in control of the Liberal Party. Tony Abbott has been seen as a good attack dog but will not be trusted to implement the benefits of vested interests and his odd ball policies are too much for the true “for my benefit, only” free marketeers. The Liberal Party does not see Abbott leading a winning campaign at the next election and does not have the backing that Howard enjoyed, when nobody else wanted to be opposition leader and subsequently he won the election after the country tired of Keating’s reforms.
