What is happening to this wonderful country of ours. This week there will be a party vote on the leadership of the Liberal Party, and therefore just who will be our Prime Minister. Now I don’t know about you but I voted for Tony Abbott and would do so again, what right do the politicians have to decide who will lead our country, that is up to the people, regardless of which political party is in power. The Australian people voted Mr Abbott and his Liberals in, and the Australian people should be the only ones who can vote them out.
I don’t want a repeat of the Labor leadership debacle that so undermined our political system a couple of years ago, I thought the Liberals were above that. I am very disappointed. In saying that any Liberal leader would be better than the current leader of the opposition, I do not recall a less inspiring character heading one of our major parties before.
During the last period of Liberal opposition there were a number of changes in leader and what happened, Labor were voted in and retained power for some time, learn from the past and leave Mr Abbott and his eminently capable Foreign Minister Julie Bishop right where they are. Prime Ministers have been unpopular before and they will be again, let the people decide.
