    I thought he did well, sensible and easy to understand

    Red Kezza might have been nastier,though on past form usually he breathes his hatred of non labor side of politics,but he was more mellow I felt–wonder when it will strike them at the Aussie Bolshevik Collection that they do us a grave disservice by focussing on the Opposition to the exclusion of the real facts and dangers about Copenhagen?

    When the Whirling Dervish has signed away our sovereignty to some world order group with no operative escape clause,and at least $7bill annually for the “privilege”–all in the name of his self aggrandisement syndrome????

  2. Colin Says:

    I thought it most interesting that he kept repeating a line about “reaching out to everyone”, “embracing everyone” etc etc. Very savvy of Mr Andrews – I reckon that’s a deliberate (and shrewd) political strategy, to position himself as a potential leader who can/will “reach out” to all sides, listen patiently to everyone, and so “heal the divisions”. Smart operator, I suspect.

    from article
    A small ‘’l’’ Liberal said Mr Andrews was a strong and smart individual but not a realistic leadership candidate because his conservative Catholic views would make him ‘’unelectable’’ for the prime ministership.

    As opposed to a PM that gives sermons from the mound instead of political speeches? That has dragged his church into the evening news every Sunday for his photo op?
    Come on! Look who got voted in last time! You’d have to try fricken hard to beat Rudd in the churchy leader stakes! The small l’s in the Libs are more biased than the average Aussie if that’s their first thought about Andrews.
    I listened to Andrews speak BEFORE the leadership vote and warmed to him straight off. I was hoping he’d get over the line truth be told.
    It would have given Libs. a chance to change tack, vote no for now on ETS and have given them a platform for the next election.
    Now we have two brands of vanilla to vote for.
    Why vote Lib when they too have inflicted this ETS on OZ? Especially if it all ends up stinking to high heaven with these emails being leaked.
    A vote for Malcolm and his ETS in the party room was a vote for anyone other than Liberal at the next election for me.

  4. Shelley Says:

    Mr Turnbull was “humble” at the end of the vote, he said. “Malcolm said he could always do things better. Malcolm was very humble at the end of it, can I say,” Mr Hockey said

    Does this mean Mal will be taking yet another lead from Ruddy Labor and offering up a ‘sorry’ to the Australians he’s shafted by ramming through Rudds ETS?

      He may have helped shaft us, but anyone else reckon he’s all for the ETS because it will help out his mates back at Goldman Sachs (of cash)?

    Via Andrew.

    Addot set to quit.

      Well, well…

      Mr Abbott said his office had had an “absolute deluge” of critical emails after Mr Turnbull announced the coalition’s support for the amended ETS.

      “The phone lines have been in meltdown with people saying that the Liberal Party would not be doing its job as an opposition simply to pass this thing without scrutiny … it demands,” he said.
