Crikey Quiz: can you tell the difference between Julia’s 2013 and Malcolm’s 2017?

Is it Malcolm Turnbull or Tony Abbott? A Liberal backbencher or a Labor faceless man?

"I'm not aware of any moves to replace Mr Turnbull as prime minister ... That could only be contemplated as a very, very last measure, a measure of very last resort."

That was Liberal backbencher Kevin Andrews on Sky News on Thursday. He has to forgive us if we don't quite believe him; we've heard similar things before. If you're feeling a sense of deja vu, that's because many of the statements made by members of the Liberal Party, and by Tony Abbott himself, sound remarkably similar to those made as Kevin Rudd stalked Julia Gillard.

    the change of rudd and gilliard/ gilliard rudd and their removal by voters was for purely political reasons , the removal by voters of abbott/ turnball will be for pure economic reasons, the economy did well under rudd/ gilliard and is being destroyed by abbott/ turnmbull.

      I agree with you. I feel I am watching the demise of our wonderful country. We need a hero.

    No I do not work in politics. I do keep up with the news and get very angry and frustrated with some of our crap representatives. At the moment our country is going to the dogs with the present riff raff of government. Hope they are chucked out soon before it is to late to make changes.

    Yes 8/11 as well. A disappointing result! 😉

    6/11 Any higher and you fall into the Get a Life category.

    I’ seem to be way behind on these questions although they were duplicated at a later by someone else. What an awful job – We want a great statesman like Gough Whitlam in this office.
