The Oracle Of Omniscience comes up with a brilliant initiative to assuage the grief of Abbott supporters.
The Turnbull Dynasty
Lucy ponders Malcolm’s greatness as PM and concludes that if only he could gain the support of Bill Shorten and Tony he would be able to inspire the nation for many years to come.
Despite the fact that the office of Prime minister is the most vital job in the country rarely is it able to boast an incumbent like Malcolm who is truly capable of doing it brilliantly.
Malcolm has only been in the job for just over a year but that doesn’t prevent people with precious little prime ministerial potential like Bill Shorten from making absurd claims about being able to do the job better.
I can only assume that an assertion as insane as that is politically rather than rationally based because no-one outside a rehabilitation centre or the ACTU could possibly believe that the man who agreed with Julia Gillard even though he didn’t hear what she said and then stabbed her presumably after he found out what it was could possibly be in the same PM league as Malcolm.
I do worry about Tony. I know he’s stated that he’ll never be PM again but that brings back memories of Kevin and look how he relentlessly pursued poor Julia. And even if he never becomes PM again he’ll be a perpetual pain to Malcolm because he’s got nothing better to do. And unfortunately not even Botswana would back him to become UN Secretary General.
Let’s face it if Tony ever managed to trample over Malcolm back into The Lodge it would be a catastrophe more catatonic than Trump being elected President or heaven forbid Joe Hockey becoming Treasurer again.
Come to think of it Joe, Wayne Swan, Albo and Bronnie have all at some stage or other been touted as future PMs. That just illustrates how vigilant we have to be to ensure the highest office in the land is the exclusive reserve of men and women who like Malcolm were born with a silver spoon from The Lodge in their mouths.
I sometimes wonder to what great endeavour Malcolm will devote his intellect when he finally resists pleas from a grateful nation to stay on as PM. Personally I hope he becomes head of a global climate change authority with responsibility for ensuring it doesn’t get confused with a weather bureau.
It is obviously going to be vital for future generations that the legacy of Malcolm’s leadership lives on. There is a growing realisation that this could best be achieved by me doing a Hillary but Malcolm might take some persuading to do a First Bloke.
