Thinking about the Libs and their “me too“ shift to the left, their timorous lack of confidence and conviction to wind back the excesses of the left when in government, is redolent of the quote from the Vietnam war that “we had to destroy the village to save it” Is that the fate of the Libs?

‘..Conservatives are sick of Coalition governments which appease the Left, curl into a ball and try not to cause outrage while Labor-Green governments remake the culture in their own image. The country always takes two steps to the Left with a Labor government, and not much better than one step to the Right or even staying in place with the Coalition, which puts us on a very bad trajectory indeed.
