If Turnbull moves further Right they will definitely lose the next election this was a vote for the ALP Right because there was no other alternative. Had the ALP been further Left than they are now the margin would have been even greater. So bring back Abbott for the left’s sake. (ODT)
The result in Longman (and Braddon, and Perth, and Fremantle and Mayo) is a repudiation of Turnbull and the Liberal party who have thrown everything at Shorten over recent weeks and vastly outspent the Labor party. As prime minister, having put his leadership squarely on the line, his position as leader is now untenable and if he places his future in the hands of his colleagues we can expect him to be dumped and that will give us Peter Dutton and the Abbott rabble followed closely and inevitably by the demise of the Liberal party.
