We will not become a carbon copy of the labor party

Parodies aside though, who here's watching all this unfold?

Turnbull is a smart man, nobody in business amasses a $200m+ fortune and isn't so. The timing in my opinion is impeccable - using the Canning by election as leverage. The fact he's tossed aside his cabinet position is a clear sign he's pretty darn sure of walking straight into another gig. I honestly believe this time Tony is gone. They gave him 6 months, nothing much has changed, and about the only steady constant is the man's arrogance and unshakeable yet deluded own self belief.

Crushed by 10 votes. Get ready for another 10 years of the LNP as well.

1.6m for Kevin, Julia and Tony's pensions +expenses. It's pretty ridiculous.

K and J only. Tony (apparently) misses out because he was 5 days short of serving the mandatory 2 years which would thereby make him entitled. Bear in mind the clock started from the time he was sworn in.

Have every reason to believe it is, it's all over the news sites.

oh, I see how I was wrong, he doesn't get the 'gold pass' with the free flights & staffed office expenses+other perks valuing 300k a year. Poor Tony

I'm sure he will still be able to comfortably afford the best ultra light carbon fibre shimano equipped whips that money can buy - and for a long time to come yet.
