Upon reading the Townsville Bulletin 05.01.16 story Turnbull fumes as old guard fumbles I felt a little sorry for the Prime Minister, as he is unable to act because of the factions within his party, Minister Dutton has committed an offense by sending insulting language via a public carriage text network and should lose his Ministry, surely this is not acceptable behaviour from a Minister of the Crown? Mr Turnbull is weakened by the factions within the Liberal Party, as it seems that Minister Dutton is leading the ultra conservatives, and was the Prime Minister to sack him; the government would fall into civil war. The LNP have never in recent history been less unified than they are at present.
We have seen the LNP begin with Mr Abbott, change to Mr Turnbull and then implode with Ministers Brough and Briggs having to leave the Ministry following bad behaviour, and then the scandal surrounding Mr Dutton. The government is becoming a rabble, and Mr Turnbull’s judgement is coming into question for selecting these people to be part of his Ministry, with conspiracy theories abounding involving Messers Abbott, Andrews, Abetz, Bernardi and others tearing the government to pieces.
Australians will not elect disunited political parties to govern, if the LNP cannot govern their members, we cannot trust them to govern Australia. We are still waiting on Mr Turnbull’s reaction to the 579 companies who turned over in excess of $100 million in the 2013/14 financial year who paid little to no tax?
