If the libs were to win the next election it would be in spite of Abbott not because of him. All moot now, they won't win.
What a joke of a statement.

It has only been since Abbott became leader that the Coalition have even looked like having a chance at the next election.

The Libs just won the election. Australia will not tolerate a female Prime Minister, especially since the older generation are still the largest voting block. Its really that simple. Rudd had his problems but at least he was a chance. Well done to them on out-flanking labor.

<----- Mate, the 50s are that way.
The oldies will love Gillard.

Tony was rhodes scholar
So? I've got a mate who teaches at Oxford, having done post-grad economics there. He's bright, very bright, but I know smarter people teaching primary school, performing life-saving surgery or writing poetry.

I said yesterday that Abbott was a dead duck and it is pretty easy to see why.

He can't beat Gillard in any debate - on policy or on personality. He can't outwit her on the floor of the Parliament either.

So you think elections is all about who wins debates and a personality contest?

One wonders how John Howard ever won an election.*

*His personality did develop well as the years went on and he became more comfortable etc..

Spot on.

Make no mistake about it - it was no coincidence that the ABC ran an Australian Story propaganda piece on Gillard earlier this week. They are a quasi faction of the left wing of the Labor Party.

It is an absolute joke.

I dont even like Rudd, but the ABC was effectively doing Gillard's bidding for her.
Doesn't the board of the ABC have two of the most far right wing political commentators and Authors in Australia on it's board?

Although I do understand that quality journalism is poison to the Liberal party which totally relies on tricking the stupid, ignorant, bigoted and cruel into voting against their own interests through the use of endless repetition of simple propaganda messages.

If anything the ABC has a right wing bias

Just watch insiders or listen to counterpoint

I think you'll find Howard had one or two policies.

The point is that Abbott is un-electable. He'll never be PM
Precisely. Even with virtually all the nation's major media outlets, practically without exception, doing damn near everything they could to slant things in his favour at every possible opportunity, Abbott STILL could not establish a lead over the ALP, even when Rudd was at his weakest point.

I'll be absolutely stunned if he even gets close to winning the election.

YES, it does. But these folks don't actually seem to watch the station whose news coverage they're seeking to assess of course, or monitor developments pertaining to it in any meaningful way.... :rolleyes:
