New Prime Minister.

There was a spill today in the parliamentary Liberal Party (our conservative party) and Australia now has a new Prime Minister.

This makes a couple of posts on my to-do list slightly redundant. But only slightly. The turd has had a bit of a polish, that's all. And unfortunately it might mean they are more likely to win the next election.

Was rather hoping that rather accept a leadership spill, the PM would call a double dissolution (ie - a big old general election of both houses of Federal Parliament). Nope.

~~~

Unfortunately, the political analysis of the bloke next to me on the couch is that it means the Australian Labor Party (currently in opposition) probably won't change their leader. Which I think is kind of a shame. I'd quite like to see some major policy shifts too. If you Brits could see your way to sending us Jeremy Corbyn I'd be most grateful.

Still, I will confess that I feel no sympathy for the now ex-PM. He is a complete arse. Of course, I suspect I'll feel much the same way about the new one within a week, tops.
