The Mad Monk is now opposition leader. A worse outcome for Australian politics, I can’t imagine at the moment. The dark horse (fifth member of the riders of the apocalypse?) actually even beat Hockey in a three-way contest (Abbott 35, Turnbull 26, Hockey 23).
I guess the Liberal Party doesn’t believe in conscience votes (as Hockey was advocating), let alone have a conscience, any more.
Interesting times we live in. It beggers belief that this could have happened. And it puts paid to the idea that I have any clue at all what people out there are thinking!
If only the Neanderthals of whom you speak would follow their namesakes to extinction. Alas we live in Cro-Magnon times…
At least if the vote was that close the party is obviously split, and that’s got to be a plus, whatever kind of a troglodyte they put on the throne.
One ballot was actually spoiled as someone wrote “no” rather than the name of a candidate.
Small mercies – in today’s paper Abbot says that he won’t introduce legislation to restrict abortion or contraception or other things that the Catholic church hates. So far the image the cartoonists are using seems to be a mix of the sporty (lifesaver, but not cyclist so far) and religious (carrying a crosier). I suggested to Bobbie that some enterprising illustrator might go for the KKK look, but she thinks that’s a pontification too far.
Interesting juxtaposition you have there, pontiff and KKK =^)
I was going to write “bridge too far”, but the latin jumped into my head and I had to try for a wordplay, even if it was a bit(!) dodgey 🙂
3-way pun! I like!
I aim to please…
