After their vote on the SSM amendments in the senate, I hope the Libs enjoyed the misty eyed and misguided moment in the sun and that they enjoy their time in opposition. To paraphrase from a moment in history “you may be some time” The Liberals under Turnbull remind me of this scenario, this snippet of history from 1912:

“..The following night, according to Scott’s diary entry, in the early morning of 16 March 1912, Oates said to his colleagues:

“I am just going outside and may be some time.”

Then, without going through the painful exertion of putting on his boots, he stepped outside into a raging blizzard and temperatures of -40.0 °C (-40 °F) to face certain death. Oates’ self-sacrifice did not save his colleagues from a similar fate. Scott, Wilson and Bowers died nine days later, eleven miles short of their next pre-laid food depot that could have saved their lives…”

In a nut shell, that’s the Liberals under Turnbull except they’re all “..just going for a walk outside (together) and may be some time..”
