Malcolm, you assassinated a Liberal Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, who’d won an election by a huge margin. You promised to do even better than him. Malcolm, after this election you are now finished You then treated the Liberal base like dirt, smashing it with a huge super tax, refusing to speak to conservative journalists, repeatedly humiliating Abbott. You referred to the colonial settlement of Australia as an “invasion” and even held an end-of-Ramadan meal with known Muslim bigots. You will be unable to get the numbers to get your building and construction commission through in any joint sitting of parliament. You have asked for no mandate for real reform, and will have almost no power to undertake any. Your popularity, already plummeting, will fall further.
