Australia: A sunburned yet lucky country of wide sweeping plains, diverse wildlife and a...turnstile government?
Many of you might be aware of recent changes in leadership, but a few years back the Labor party employed a revolving door policy that believed that a
good stab in the back deserves another, and in two terms Australia has seen a former Prime Minister-Kevin Rudd-voted out by colleagues and replaced by
Julia Gillard, who in turn was ousted in favor of...Kevin Rudd. It was a comedy of errors that lead to the liberals being elected.
But now it seems that history could be in danger of repeating itself-again.
Tony Abbott has admitted he could be removed as leader on Monday but says he respects the party room and expects the result will accurately reflect
“What I’m saying to them is the last thing our country needs now is to see another government go into meltdown.
“I will not let this country down and I will not let my party down.”
However this view is not shared by all members of the party, in fact when one MP was asked if the communications minster Malcolm Turnbull should
challenge for leadership, the response was...
"He'd be a complete arsehole if he didn't," the MP said.
There has to be something severely wrong with the governance in Australia if the Prime ministers' own colleagues aren't willing to support him, and if
the leadership does change hands that means means Australia will have had Four Prime Ministers in three terms. How is this even possible? Well it's
very simple-the Major Parties simply can't govern.
Voters around the world are becoming more skeptical of their elected officials every day, and the last thing that any voter needs is a government that
has no purpose or magnetic north that they can aim for, and everyday there is a nation that has a government tearing themselves apart at the seams.
Politics is six weeks of campaigning and 3 years of dozing and people are sick of that, which explains why we have no faith in our officials.
By this time tomorrow Australia could have a new Prime Minister-but for how long?
