A lot seems to have happened in the outside world and I haven't made a comment here.
Malcolm seems to have charmed the pants off everybody except those commentators who have a memory and research skills. On entitlement he needs to be added to the list below. Apparently in private, if he doesn't get his own way, there is a temper tantrum which is nuclear and the fallout is toxic.
I'm sure there is research going on as to how he got to where he is but let's wait until it comes out.
More importantly Turnbull is hamstrung by his own political history having been tossed out from the leadership once before for supporting a very modest carbon trading measure he has learnt that it doesn't keep the support of his detractors on the right in his party. Add to this the promise by Abbott to not destabilise the government (translation - do everything you can to get the glittering prize back) it makes for Malcolm living in interesting times to which we are all invited as passive recipients of bad policy and inaction on the pressing issues of our time.
So - the evil Greg Hunt has approved every mega coal mine seconds after he is asked with not even a nod to the environmental worms in the basket and the new "inclusive" age of Turncoat looks like Abbott with a sweeter smile. Don't be fooled for a second.
On the Labor side it is my view that whatever the truth about Bill Shorten's past it would be a great gesture for him to stand aside for the clarity would give the political debate with the danger that it hands an undeserved victory to the Libs.
Hearing the idiotic Barn any Joyce traducing the WHO for finally saying what we all know about processed meats and red meat just adds to a picture of business as usual and don't scare the horses.
