I think it was Friday evening where I saw a great link in The Guardian comments to a competition which The Monthly is holding. The object is to choose Tony Abbott’s final day as Prime Minister and his replacement.
Being that we are all engaged, political types in ThePalace(OfLove), there was nothing for it but a family competition!
Our tips are:
Bess: 28 March 2015 | Joe Hockey
Joe/Frank: 30 December 2015 | Julie Bishop
Joan: 5 November 2016 | Bill Shorten
Carol: 26 May 2015 | Malcolm Turnbull
Don: unspecified DD MM 2020 | Someone who is not yet an MP (I feel Don has a Poor View of the electorate)
Family prize as yet undecided.
Of course this all happened before the LNP was all sorts of decimated in Saturday’s Qld state election, so the change could be sooner than any of us forecast. In which case there will be much rejoicing.
Although to be fair, the optimal outcome would be a complete change of Government – because surely this is the worst, dare I say evil, Government we’ve ever had.
