Solidarity forever

Why do we even know what Malcolm Turncoat’s views are? Hasn’t he heard of cabinet solidarity?

Tony Abbott is staring down ­internal critics of his plan for a plebiscite on same-sex marriage, locking in conservative support in the wake of a Coalition dispute that has triggered renewed sniping over his leadership.

The Prime Minister threw more weight behind the plebiscite hours after Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull warned against the proposal, highlighting a conflict within the government over the way the idea was devised.

Another Donald Trump, who knows only his own opinion, respects no one else’s and cannot convince anyone of anything they don’t already believe.

    Isn’t it about time you fucked off Malcolm?

  2. JC

    I think it’s time Turnbull was fired.

  3. Ubique

    Turnbull, an ardent multiculturalist, seems utterly indifferent that SSM is deeply offensive to Australians of the Muslim faith. Malcolm, the gays being hurled off buildings by ISIS aren’t testing parachutes.

  4. C.L.

    Good point.
    Gay ‘marriage’ supporters are really being racists and Islamaphobic.
    They must be reported to Tim Southpossumass.

  5. Pusnip

    Ho him, more simplistic political commentary from Crazy Kates.

  6. mark

    He is not a Liberal! Never was, never will be.

  7. Robbo

    Turnbull should do the honest thing and resign and then go and join the Party he really supports. The big question is whether Shorten would be ready to have another rat in his ranks.

  8. John

    “Hasn’t he heard of cabinet solidarity?”

    Cabinet solidarity? What cabinet solidarity? Malcolm has never been solid behind anybody but Malcolm.
    Kerry did find that soon enough.

  9. Tel

    No one shares Donald Trump’s opinion, other than all those people who keep voting for him which is most of the GOP party voters. But other than that, no one.

  10. John

    Dear Malcolm,
    please fuck off. Just gracefully (if it is ever possible) fade away. You will newer, newer be a Prime Minister. And thanks God for that!

  11. Crossie

    Malcolm Turnbull is no Donald Trump who at least has some opinions shared by the conservative side. Trump is not afraid to voice unpopular opinions, unpopular to the luvvies that is. Malcolm assiduously courts the luvvies and finds conservatives icky. He belongs in The Plibersek wing of the Labor Party.

  12. AP

    Trump without the comb-over…

    But seriously, we know what his opinion is only because the media is so eager to give him a soapbox.

  13. Entropy

    That’s his problem right there, Crossie. Turnbull is philoohically aligned with the ALP left, but he would never be able to satisfy his ambition as a foot soldier there, as he hasn’t done the years of service and favours in the ranks, let alone he actually made money in the icky private sector, and would thus never be accepted by the factions and their favour/patronage/nepotism system. So he went with the less difficult and shorter/shallower path by joining the less organised Libs.

  14. Toiling Mass

    We could call it Turnbull’s fork – and he sits on the middle tine.

    The people who would vote for him rather than Abbott would rather vote for Shorten or Plibershay (or whoever leads Labor) rather than him.

    There is no way he could win an election.

    Besides, how many people are going to say, “Hey, I might vote for the perfidious snake in the grass who trashes his party for his own aggrandisement!”

  15. Roger

    Another Donald Trump, who knows only his own opinion, respects no one else’s and cannot convince anyone of anything they don’t already believe.

    Can’t keep cabinet solidarity, yet a legend of a statesman in his own mind, no doubt. I’ve seen Turnbull do pressers on the steps of St Mary’s cathedral in Sydney, ostensibly having just attended Mass (and having informed the press of his location). He probably writes to the pope to advise him of his errors.

  16. 132andBush

    Every time he opens his mouth it’s ammo for the left.

    I’ve said it here before and for anyone with any clout in the Coalition, here it is again.

    In the not too distant future he should be marched out at dawn and (metaphorically of course) given the bullet!

  17. H B Bear

    Lord Turnbull of Wentworth, the Member for Me a proven political failure whose ego is the only thing that stops him recognising it.

  18. goatjam

    He probably writes to the pope to advise him of his errors.

    Given the behaviour of the current Pope, it appears he is listening.

  19. Bribiejohn

    Malcolm Turnbull? A fifth columnist!!

    FFS, could someone in the government grow a pair and banish this preposterous clown Turnbull to the backbench before having him disendorsed and expelled from the LNP?

    Is it really too much to ask?

    Malcolm is about Malcolm, always was and will be.

    The left misinterpret his treachery to fellow travellers as support for their causes , the usual confirmation bias.

    Conservatives seem to have a more robust BS detector, and are not as easily swayed by lofty, swirling arguments garnished with phrases from marketing groups or random twitter “cause” chatter.

    Malcolm is despised by anyone who has observed him for very long.

  25. Andrew

    Matthew Guy and Steve Marshall can also join Turnbull in that grouping. Never have stood for anything other that soft-left ideals.

  26. Pusnip

    Turnbull is electable; Abbott is not.
    Turnbull would be able to get more policies of the type that true Cats like implemented than Abbott/Hockey ever have or ever will. Gay marriage is a clear Libertarian-friendly policy. The ‘arguments’ presented against it on this forum have generally been pretty transparent attempts to justify state-enforced prejudice disguised as sophistry. You are clearly not proper Libertarians, so by your own logic you should all fuck off from this forum.

  27. Combine Dave

    No one shares Donald Trump’s opinion, other than all those people who keep voting for him which is most of the GOP party voters. But other than that, no one.

    The party doesn’t want him but the voters do.

    Unlike Malcolm as only those who would never vote Liberal (outside of his green/blue seat) support him.

    Same-sex marriage still involves the government defining marriage. It’s no more libertarian than traditional marriage. I don’t see a problem with the government defining contracts in the law but unless people are arguing for deregulation, I don’t see how you can argue your point.

  29. Louis

    He is the Kevin Rudd of that party.

    He had to make that statement to keep his ABC mates/masters happy. You know… one day they might make him PM.

  30. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Gay marriage is a clear Libertarian-friendly policy

    Except for children, who have a right to a mother and a father, and a right to have that right socially and culturally sanctioned, not removed from all consideration by a sleight of hand in definition. A right to know a biological mother and father is a right endorsed by human biology. And enshrined by a common agreement into the United Nations Rights of the Child.

    You don’t have to be at all ‘religious’ to believe this particular human truth. It is as human as the concept of freedom, and the idea of personal Libertarianism itself.

    I don’t divide this blog into ‘true’ Cats and others, either.
    What a closed mind you have, Puss Person.

    prejudice disguised as sophistry

    Wow.

    I’m struggling to identify which of Alinsky’s 12 Rules this gibberish belongs to. But it sounds authentically hurty. You’re an oppressed Green-voting gay millionaire property owner on Lord Wentworth’s staff, right?

  32. .

    Except for children, who have a right to a mother and a father

    All well and good but if you were serious…society would be much different.

  33. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    On Malcolm T – he is my local member, and a good one.

    Malcolm knows he has an electorate to satisfy on the politicized issue of gay relationships. There are many gays in his inner city bastions, and also many greenies there, plus plenty of ‘doctors’ wives’ who have never cancelled their SMH delivery nor their addiction to the ABC around where I live on the harbor foreshores. Not all gays that I know in Malcolm’s electorate agree with or care about ‘gay marriage’ but saying ‘yes’ to it is a sort of code for being hip and cool if you are gay and non-homophobic if you are a ‘doctor’s wife’ with artistic and literary friends.

    Malcolm is looking out for votes close to home.

  34. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Except for children, who have a right to a mother and a father

    All well and good but if you were serious…society would be much different.

    Certainly it would. Give me a free hand, Dot, and I would make it much different, via sound economic policy and with a big cultural anti-left turn-around. 🙂

    Not likely, of course. But I don’t any more let leftism define for me what I think is moral and right.

  35. .

    Gay marriage and adoption are separate issues, legally.

    If all parents have a right to a mother and father – please tell us how you would practically implement this now.

  36. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Not all gays that I know in Malcolm’s electorate agree with or care about ‘gay marriage’ but saying ‘yes’ to it is a sort of code for being hip and cool if you are gay and non-homophobic if you are a ‘doctor’s wife’ with artistic and literary friends.

    Somebody, far funnier then I am, suggested a special levy on “doctor’s wives” and calculated on the value of ash blonde hair treatments, Palliates sessions, and four wheel drives that never left the leafy burbs would go far to balancing the budget.

  37. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Gay marriage and adoption are separate issues, legally.

    So far and to some extent. Ireland is just beginning to grapple with the issue of ‘surrogacy’ raised by their recent decision. This may not always in future be defined as ‘adoption’. Just the right of a ‘married couple’ overcoming ‘infertility’ (a real laugh with regard to same-sexes).

    Some who voted yes in Ireland are now having second thoughts because of that.

    One practical thing I would do right now, Dot, is to ensure that all children’s biological origins (their real mother and father) are listed on their birth certificate. I would also ensure that the terms ‘mother’ and ‘father’ never went out of common circulation on school and other documents pertaining to children.

    I’d also encourage more shows like “Who do you think you are?” – that recognize the significance to individuals of genealogical connections.

    I cannot understand the double-think of those who want gay marriage, but go on about the long-term emotional damage to children ‘stolen’ via past forced adoptions or forced child removals, or by slavery.

    Children cannot have two mothers or two fathers; one of them has to be simply a guardian. Parent 1 and Parent 2 are Orwellian.

    I cannot remake the modern world, but I can object to making it worse.

    One:

    Matthew Guy and Steve Marshall can also join Turnbull in that grouping. Never have stood for anything other that soft-left ideals.

    also:

    The whole political class, the whole chattering class, the whole university-educated class share a lot of values. The foaming hatred of leftish pc fetishistas for the rest of us does not cancel the fact that we of the ‘non-left uni-educated class’ share values of anti-misogyny, anti-racist discrimination, anti-violence, and a pitiful need for our neighbours to see we are decent people. Our values enable those swine on the other side of the chamber the ALPBCGreenLeft to defeat us with their revolting moral posturing.

    Given this pathetic state of our country, the appalling Turnbull may actually have some utility.

    I would like some ideological purity for freedom and free markets, but given the alternative a big tent Coalition that is statist and pc in parts may be re-electable enough to stop us turning into Greece.

  40. Bruce of Newcastle

    Turnbull is unelectable as the base will colour in their vote papers and write rude comments on them rather than elect him. He forced us to use wretched twisty bulbs and almost gave us an ETS for goodness sake.

    And as for the soft left why would they ever vote for Turnbull when they could vote for the real thing?

    Every poll shows most support for Turnbull comes from Labor and Greens voters like our esteemed friend upthread. Its just trolling. Which is what Turnbull is doing. He should accept the Shadow Treasurer role in Shorten’s front bench immediately.

  42. Gab

    Turnbull tried to get preselection with Labor years ago. They rejected him. Don’t see that Labor would accept him now.

    Don’t waste your time worrying about Matthew Guy because he is only filling the hole while the Liberal Party searches around to see if they have a genuine leader somewhere in their ranks. Guy will never be Premier and the row of dropkicks behind him will never be Ministers.

  44. Pickles

    Culling a few cabinet leakers might just show the base that Abbo is a little bit fair dinkum.
    Turnbull needs the spear like a mad dog needs a bashing.

  45. Fisky

    Hilarious to see all the gay marriage supporters furiously denouncing the plebiscite, even though 99.8% of the public are just bursting to support gay marriage allegedly. Great move by Abbott.

    I would like here to personally apologise to the poor guy from Bunnings to whom I gave a hard time recently when purchasing lightbulbs. Our AGW lunacy is not this poor man’s fault, and he took it all on the chin, my little lecture to him about the stupidities of Turnbull and his lightglobes, while trying to advise me on which wattage was what these days and how I could avoid living in a horrid neon glare.

    I have thrown out all those twisty ones that made the outdoor room in our beach house look like a blue-lit toilet that stops people from shooting up in there. Thanks Mr. Bunnings Man for your helpful advice on the least worst options for me there.

  48. Mike of Marion

    I can see lots more years of Labor in SA while Steve Marshall is Liberal leader.

    Marshall is so switched ON that he asked South Australians to ‘Vote Labor” when asked for final words prior to election day last year!!!!

    An absolute dud.

  49. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Some admin reform around how birth certificates are drafted and encouraging some TV shows in now way answers this question.

    I’ve already said I cannot alone remake the modern world, Dimwit.

    Give me a chance though and I would put the traditional nuclear family once more at the forefront of public policy, reduce the availability of single parent benefits, encourage a major cultural shift about responsibilities in child-bearing and child-rearing, encourage mothers to stay at home more with their younger children by reducing child-care entitlements, encourage grandparenting, encourage self-reliance in every way, and improve job opportunities by freeing up labour markets.

    For a start.

    Hello Malcolm!

  52. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    In other words, I’d encourage what we have always known under traditional marriage. Responsibility and the separation of roles, especially when children are younger. A social ideal with far less reliance on governments to achieve it.

    Honestly, people ask this as if it has never been the case prior to the last half century. It was called marriage. It was further instantiated in the fact that divorce occurred only in exceptional cases. And so on.

  56. outsider

    Another horrible misjudgment by Utegate Turnbull. He has no feel for politics, and it would be nice of him to announce his exit before the next election.

    Comparisons to Trump – a magnificent cut through performer who bypasses the media as an irrelevancy – are tendentious and best ignored. Donald’s popularity is based on broad public disgust with the Left Media Complex.

    That would be Carbon Cate, Rob, in your great list. Mad Graeme Wood might deserve a separate mention, being a serial offender.

  57. TC

    Turnbull won Howard no support as a minister , was crap as opposition leader and can’t win any support for Abbott now that he is a minister again , so he should be sacked for being crap at his job.

    Plibersek frothing at the mouth on AM:

    MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: …Scott Morrison says a referendum to change the constitution is also being discussed.

    Is that something you’d support?

    TANYA PLIBERSEK: Is this really how we want to spend $120 million of taxpayer’s money? I mean, this is extraordinary. The High Court has already decided that the Australian Parliament should legislate, that it has the power to legislate.

    We’ve got constitutional experts like Anne Twomey making it very clear that it’s the role of the Parliament to legislate in this area.

    This is an expensive delaying tactic pushed by the opponents of marriage equality.

    The lying and misrepresentation is normal: the High Court has never “decided that the Australian Parliament should legislate” and nobody is disagreeing with Anne Twomey’s opinion that the Commonwealth alone has the power to legislate on marriage.

    But when the ALP suggests it is interested in saving money to push a pet project – we enter the world of industrial strength, Olympic-class lying.

    If the LNP understood escalation they’d rip into Plibersek along the lines of, “we are disgusted that Tanya thinks you can put a price on the right of ‘two people who love each other’ to ‘marry’. We’re really not ready to resolve this issue until we do away with opinions like these, which highlights why we’ve taken the decision to put this to the Australian people at a later date.”

  64. Rabz

    Is this really how we want to spend $120 million of taxpayer’s money? I mean, this is extraordinary.

    Yes, not when there are houses to set on fire, pensioner set top boxes to purchase, covered outdoor learning areas to construct at twenty times the going rate, hundreds of billions on an NBN and 50,000 muslim welfare shoppers to unleash on the community, for starters.

    It’s the hypocrisy that’s extraordinary.

    …and in a civilised society, the rule of law must prevail.

    Indeed it must. So I fully support investigating the case to be made for children stolen from their homes and their biological parents and families, and compensating where damage is proven. I just can’t understand why opponents of other forms of underhand child-stealing do not see that ‘gay marriage’ is of the same ilk. It will produce more stolen children who may require compensation for damages they suffer. Members of the Argentinian Junta stole the children of leftists they murdered: that turned out well too. In the end, the children did not thank them for it.

    As long as he’s giving the Coalition a vicious head kicking the media will give him an easy ride. As soon as he became leader, and it was in his self-interest to promote the Coalition rather than fragging it, the media would go into all out destruction mode, and almost certainly he’d be back below 30% in no time.
    Almost. He might surprise us of course. Menzies was unelectable, so were Thatcher, Reagan, Kennett and Howard. And so was Abbott – so, since we really don’t know what the position will be come election time, why would we want the leader to come from Labor in disguise rather than the DLP?

    Why would any self-respecting libertarian support Turnbull? The guy is in favour of an ETS: a policy which would not only drastically expand the size and power of the state, but also would give rise to costs that far outweigh any benefits.

    There are a number of lefties infiltrated into the Libs including Turnbull and Hunt ,others are suspect I mean even Abbott has his monents of socialist inspired stupidit. Suppose its the old DLP leftovers,it proves the march through the institutions is going well. To clean this country of socialist infection woukd involve a huge number of regressives and fellow travelers being on the Dole ,as they are useless for any practical job.

    True. Turncoat is the reason we’re not even allowed to choose what lightbulbs we want in our own homes.

    Good list Rob. A few suggested additions: the universities, doctors’ wives, Clive Palmer, Bob Katter, the Victorian Liberal Party, and 90 percent of those on a public payroll.

    Team Australia’s captain needs to show some leadership and sack all of the rats poisoning the front bench. That said, I doubt that he is up to it because his focus seems to be trying to make his enemies love him.

    Rob, you forgot the agrarian socialists -oops, National Party.

    “Rob, you forgot the agrarian socialists -oops, National Party.”

    Sorry about that except, you know, I can’t find anywhere where the agrarian socialists have either backstabbed Tone or put led in his saddlebags or are in anyway in the same class as the ABC, Turnbull, Fairfax or even Dr Seuss.

    Besides tin-ear fucking 90% of their own constituents, perhaps you have some other inside info on the evil doings of these people that you could share that would put them on the list ?

    …and in a civilised society, the rule of law must prevail.

    The (Godwin warning) Nazis had RULE OF LAW, the Soviets had RULE OF LAW, The North Koreans have RULE OF LAW, the black rock worshipers have Rule of (shariah) LAW!

    Now, what point were you making?

  90. Malcolm Turnbull is a successful Barrister, Merchant Banker and Manager. Phony Wabbitt is a failed priest, a filed journo and a failed PM. He and Attila the Howard has ensured that after 14+ elections voting LNP I never will again – except if Malcolm oust the Punch drunk Mad Monk!
