"Turnbullnator 30: Judgement Day" - video
This has got to be the funniest video I've seen in some time. At least Turnbull's good for something :s
Turnbull challenged and turfed Abbott a while back citing 30 Newspolls in a row as one of the biggest reasons why. Turnbull won the prime minister-ship and had stratospheric polling for a big Turnbull polling honeymoon. Australians were ecstatic that Abbott was gone and that Turnbull wasn't Abbott, and had huge expectations for moderate Turnbull.
However he fizzled. He became Abbott's and the right's puppet. No policies changed because he needed the support of the right to retain his prime minister-ship. We still had Abbott ruling from the back bench.
The collective disappointment was palpable. It wasn't a crash but a long burn. He was a failure.
And now tomorrow will be the 30th Newspoll in a row that the Turnbull gov has lost, just like with Abbott. Because he might as well be Abbott. The media here is going nuts about it. Abbott is stirring shit asking why was he turfed then? Rumour has it he knows the gov will lose the coming election and he wants to be opposition leader. It's the only thing Mr No is good at.
