Justinian the Great: Morrison’s Miracle Stands As The Last Judgment on Turnbull.

This election must be particularly galling for Malcolm Turnbull.

He has blown his cash, blown the residue of what was his reputation, and seen the Australian people poor cold water on his fantasies.

By returning the Morrison Government the Australian people have ensured Malcolm Turnbull’s legacy will barely rate a footnote.

He will be remembered as a lousy Prime Minister, an even worse campaigner, and a political traitor and saboteur to the end.

In fact, absent a sculpture in Ballarat’s botanical gardens I doubt future generations would remember him at all.

To the extent he is remembered it will be above all else for being a delusional narcissist.

The guy who lost fourteen seats to Bill Shorten in 2016 believed his sacking was political “madness”.

He believed the Liberal Party’s “concern was not that I would lose the election but rather that I would win it”. 

And at the time of the “coup” the Liberal party replaced a “popular” leader with the unpopular Scott Morrison.

Morrison’s near solo effort has debunked all three of Malcolm’s fantasies and has shown how wise the Party was in sacking him.

Albeit utterly insane for entrusting him with the leadership in the first place and hopeless for not getting rid of him after 2016!

There is no way Malcolm could have campaigned as effectively as Morrison did, staying on message and exploiting Labor policy.

Moreover, Turnbull would have been a liability with the ALP-Green campaign being trumpeted as a referendum on climate change.

Turnbull could never have won this election and everybody knows it. Well, everyone except Turnbull.

Morrison’s triumph is thus Turnbull’s complete and utter humiliation.

Not only did Morrison mop up Turnbull’s mess, he did so with Turnbull and his dull little proxy trying to harm him at every turn.

Accordingly, Morrison’s “miracle” also represents The Last Judgment on Turnbull.

Morrison has secured a place in the Liberal pantheon. A special (somewhat hotter) place has been reserved for Turnbull.

    MT is already in the bad place he created and the ego is hurting.

    On the walls of Goverment House in Tasmania, there is a painting of every Governor since the colony was established. Except for He Who We Do Not Name.

    look at the results for Longman & Ryan. Under Turnbull; loss, under morrisson win

  4. notafan

    Malcolm only campaigned until lunch time, last time.

  5. anonandon

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

  6. 2dogs

    OP missed the best bit: ScoMo won with a greater majority than Turnbull.

  7. Rococo Liberal

    A very good post.
    As a resident of Wentworth, I always had to hold my nose when voting for Turnbull, as I knew that if he ever got near power he would be sure to sell out on conservative principals because he is at heart a pissweak appeaser. He’d rather look good to those wankers who tell you that they would actually vote conservative if a softcock LINO is made leader of the Liberal party.

  8. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Morrison certainly owes Turnbull no favours after his behavior since he spat the Wentworth dummy.

  9. Bruce of Newcastle

    Turnbull wanted to save the world from a mythical problem, and resolved to drag both his party and Australia along with him. Whether we liked it or not.

    This election shows just how insane that was.

    I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of him as he tries unsuccessfully to be Banquo’s ghost for the next 3 years. My suggestion to him is give it away and live in New York City. They like green insanity over there.

    The net effect of MT- manic progressivism in Cabinet and a fourteen seat voter depression. Turnbull syndrome?
    The Coalition were somewhat late in taking the cure.

    Turnbull & son tried hard, but couldn’t win it for Shoeten.

  13. Craig Mc

    I told you so, but then most of you already knew.

    I told the Libs too, but they thought we’d all come around to loving Dear Malcolm. Oddly enough, I still think he’s a [naughty word edited. Sinc] after all these years.

    Oh well, I’m confident in ScoMo’s judgement as an opportunist to be pragmatic about things, and he’s dragging a far shorter gaggle of morons behind him than Albo will be.

  14. Leo G

    Turnbull & son tried hard, but couldn’t win it for (Shorten).

    Fourteen seats below expectations?

    Moreover, just to rub it in, Morrison’s victory speech mentioned the Abbott Government’s original electoral win, and didn’t mention Turnbull at all.

    All of those things are completely on the money. One of the truly great things about this result is that it means that we won’t hear from Turnbull again and if we do he we be treated with the contempt and derision he so richly deserves. This must be hurting his colossal ego very badly and that warms my heart.

    He should have though. Turnbull did win an election and gave Morrison the treasurer job originally and helped him on his way.
    Nothing to lose by being gracious when you a winner.

  18. ACTOldFart

    Just what is it about Australia that, since 2007, we have had Prime Ministers like Rudd (psychopath narcissist), Gillard (incompetent morally stained identity politics self-server) and Turnbull (vacuous egomaniac)?

    ScoMo only has to be ordinary and do nothing much to outshine that parade of dreck. Perhaps he will be John Howard without the political nous and charisma.

  19. Petros

    Let’s not forget Peter Dutton’s contribution to rolling Turnbull. Thanks Peter. Glad to see him get re-elected despite the hostile media.

  20. Iva Right

    Regarding Turnbull and his son – a maggot never falls far from the rotting corpse

  21. Farmer Gez

    Quite right Petros.
    The big walloper Dutton put the night stick to good use on Bligh Turnbull.
    ScoMo raised the flag on a conquered hill.

  22. Bear Necessities

    Also out the door is Bishop, Pyne and Landry.

  23. Empire 5:5

    Turnbull at 32 threatened to end the political career of Sir Robert Armstrong. He followed through when Armstrong was humiliated in the box at the Spycatcher trial.

    There’s a good chance the truth behind the 14 September 2015 coup will surface in the not too distant future. This isn’t the end of hearing about the Turnbulls. Wait ‘til to you hear about what he got up to with his mate Barry.

  24. Bear Necessities

    What type of father hides behind his son when trying to knife his opponents. His son’s reputation has been forever harmed. if I was Alex I would drop as much dirt on him. If you are to go down why not him.

  25. Empire 5:5

    Nothing to lose by being gracious when you a winner.

    Sure there is. Credit to traitors green lights treason.

  26. Wayne McDermott

    I just posted this on one of the ALP facebook posts. Lot’s of fun to be had there.

    “Bill Shorten says Labor will have a mandate to legislate controversial tax changes if it wins the election”… I’m looking forward to labor supporting the coalitions mandate to lower taxes, reign in the feral union dogs by further strengthening the ABCC and abolishing s18c of the HRC. That’s how it works doesn’t it?

  27. Dr Fred Lenin

    The next coal fired power station should be named after him ,just as we should build one where the commos blew one up in SA and name i after wetherill the bastardised who had old one blown up,when you get a lefty on the floor put he boot in they would do it to you .

    PJMedia. The New York Times joins the ranks of the peeved. We got it wrong on global warming and failed miserably in flouting the pre-election polls. The Pink Lady has spoken.

    The best thing is that the Turnbull Family cabal that they were building, is now dust.

    Morrison’s Miracle Stands As The Last Judgment on Turnbull.

    On who?

    Oh yes, him.

    Actually, he’s yet to face the greatest Assize, as we all are.

  35. HP

    So Turnbull could not buy a proper Lib win when he donated millions to that end during the previous election.
    And he could not even buy a proper Lib loss when he donated millions to that end during this election.

    Turnbull must be the most incompetent schmuck in Canberra – yep, in spite of some pretty stiff competition there.

    How on Earth did he make a fortune and not lose it? Seriously, how?

  39. Tiny Dancer

    I’m so glad he hates Dutton. That puts the courageous Dutton on the good side of history. Imagine losing, on your knees like a coward, listening to Malcolm blithering about how it was a great time to be Malcolm.

  40. Love the finches in the header. Quite a few pundits are saying BS would have won if he explained ALP’s tax grab better but it’s precisely that they explained it so well that they lost. The public knew exactly what they would be in for and they rejected it.

  41. Roger

    The public knew exactly what they would be in for and they rejected it.

    Albanese appears to be the only Labor figure approaching this realisation.

    He’s going to have a job ahead of him keeping a lid on the crazy Left, and even if he does it’s only cosmetic.

    That weak point is where Morrison needs to aim.

  42. Helen

    Turnball only knows treachery. It is his DNA, his pulse, fills his lungs, keeps him awake at night plotting revenge and wakens him with a spring in his step and a sneer on his face in the morning to give another paper cut in the death of a thousand cuts he has planned.

    Poor kitty.

  43. Gab

    I’ll remember Turnbull until the day he dies because until them he’ll still be getting a pension from taxpayers/

    A multi-millionaire skiving off taxpayers.

    China not very happy with ScoMo’s win. Wonder why?

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-05-19/china-state-media-reaction-to-australian-election-result/11128458

    In an editorial posted to the newspaper’s official WeChat account just after midnight following the election, the newspaper said Chinese people were concerned about the impact Mr Morrison’s election would have on foreign relations.

    The editorial pointed to comments from former prime minister and Labor leader Paul Keating, who said Australia’s spy chiefs are “nutters” who should be sacked in order to improve relations with China.

    Labor frontbencher Anthony Albanese — who has tossed his hat in the ring for the Labor leadership after Mr Shorten’s resignation — said Mr Keating’s comments reflected broader concerns about attitudes towards China and said Australia needed to be careful not to be “xenophobic when it comes to China and the role of China in the region”.

  45. Roger

    …the newspaper said Chinese people were concerned about the impact Mr Morrison’s election would have on foreign relations.

    Yes, that was indubitably the main topic of conversation in millions of Chinese households last night.

  46. Habib

    The liberal party still needs a full purge of all turnmites and wets, until then and it starts actually showing and acting on liberal principles it remains the enemy. If the ALP are the Norks and the greens Hoxha-era Albania, the LNP is Indonesia-relatively benign but hoovering aid, occasionally sending boatloads of welfare-seeking perverts our way and shooting at our military, and capable of going batshit crazy at the drop of a sonko.

  47. Tim Neilson

    He should have though. Turnbull did win an election and gave Morrison the treasurer job originally and helped him on his way.
    Nothing to lose by being gracious when you a winner.

    No, candy, condoning unrepented treachery would have been entirely the wrong note to start on (as empire 5:5 noted).
    And it would have been a bad look for the winner of the election to get booed off stage by his own supporters minutes after announcing victory.

  48. The Turnbull’s backed Labor to avenge his dumping, destroy the Libs but MOST IMPORTANTLY, Labor would have had a referendum on the Republic, won it by doing what they always do – cheat – and appointed Malcolm as the first President as reward.

    Exactly.
    Very pointed.
    After this win, it would be a brave Lib MP to consort with Trumble.

    The Turnbull tribe, so much shadenfreude available, it’s like it’s on tap!

    They made it very clear, they were only ever in it for themselves and never for the good of the country.

    Are any of his cabal still in parliament?

    When they expell Turnbull from the Liberal Party, his cohort should all go too for no other reason than to make an example of traitorous wretches.

    Turnbull has left a couple of poison pills though, the dormant Carbon pricing thing he brought in and the subs. Who wants to bet that after the first one is delivered and is rubbish, Australia if offered a way out by getting the rest of them nuclear powered? Knowing full well it would be beyond his time.

    In Charles the II’s time, well just after it, they made examples of people properly, heads on spikes I believe.

    To be honest, I reckon Turnbull will resign shortly, rather than face up to his peers.

    Do tell, BN. This scab really needs tearing off.
    Whether or not it gets fed to IT is irrelevant.
    The other aspect is the removal of several particularly odious creatures from Parliament and the Liberal Party. This may turn out to be more important for the Nation than the turfing of Turnbull.
