Even if he gets majority, the future of Australia is minority government. He needs to get along with the cross bench, and is probably the best suited PM in my memory to be able to do thatThe devil’s trap.
Gets handed the most progressive parliamentary makeup since Whitlam, but with a primary vote sitting at 31 and losing at least one and possibly multiple ALP seats to the Greens, but with a huge chunk of the electorate also being what I would call an anti-government vote (indies, ON, UAP).
The reality is it’s probably going to be easier for the Coalition to go from 36.5>40 than it will be for Labor to go from 31-37.
To hold on in 3 years Albo cannot fall into the trap of doing everything at once despite the pressure he will come under. The Greens, the indies, the unions and drip Twitter will scream for the dismantling of OSB, mass IR reform and a fundamental reshaping of Australian society, but last night was not a mandate for Labor’s platform at all.
If he’s that bad the bloke he beat must be useless.
Yes and that's harder to do since the party changed the rules requiring a vote from the rank and file to be done as well.I'm not so sure about the first part of your statement. Albo would have to reach a very low level of popularity for it to reach the point where the party replace him.
Not expecting a fair run in the media by any stretch, but one thing at least is that the climate denier media will lose a lot of legitimacy in the public eye nowThe corporate media will be relentless, blaming him for everything the coalition botched in their 9 years.
He absolutely must get the ICAC up and running ASAP, at all costs.
The people who inflicted huge damage on our country for a cheap dollar must be exposed.
