On my other blog, TrueblueNZ, I posted an article revealing the faces and names of those Liberal Party politicians who voted for Malcolm Turnbull in the leadership spill last year.
I wrote the post because I was angered at the lack of accountability among the Liberals in deciding to keep the vote secret, thereby denying their constituents the chance to consider their involvement in this sorry event before placing their vote in the coming election.
The post has continued to attract thousands of hits and proves that the anger at Abbott’s dismissal is still white hot among supporters of his model of the party.
I am expecting this still blazing anger to give the Australian Liberty Alliance a big boost in the polls, and or lead to a possibly hung parliament. The director of the ALA, Debbie Robinson, reports that prior to the coup, her page had 40,000 hits recorded. After, it ballooned to over 800,000.
It was all so unnecessary, as unfolding events have shown that Turnbull’s criticism of Abbott could now be just as well applied to Turnbull himself, especially as his polling numbers have fallen drastically.
So called election Guru, in reality the white flag waving Progressive Mark Textor said “The sum of a more centrist approach outweighs any alleged marginal loss of so-called base voters.”
Well, we’re about to find out about that aren’t we Mr. Textor?
