Do the dozen or so renegade Libs calling for Malcolm Turnbull to trash an election promise have any idea what they’re doing? Do they seriously put gay marriage ahead of the nations and their own political fortunes? With only a one seat majority if they were to be successful, several things would happen.
One the Libs polling would resume freefall as the last remaining Liberal voters desert the party. Two, a number of Liberal Members of Parliament would jump the fence to the cross benches making the coalition a minority government at best, three, having trashed an election promise for which he has a mandate Turnbull’s reputation as a politician would be totally and irredeemably trashed and traduced and four the Libs could expect probably three terms in the wilderness as a political rump opposition.
