I don’t reckon the Libs would be game to change leaders before the election. They realise that, no matter how much many of them like Abbott, too many voters don’t. After the election, though, even if the Libs win…
I wouldn’t be putting money on a Lib win, even I reckon they’ll lose unless a miracle occurs.
Any Lib who isn’t a lunatic Abbott supporter would admit that he didn’t win the election, Labor lost it and the Libs were the default choice.
So what’s the current choice, personally I think Julie Bishop has the balls and public support to do the job, but I think it will take 2 more elections before we see it happen. I also think that will be quicker than most expect considering the useless prick at the wheel now, and the ethically challenged union puppet in opposition, both these heads will roll in my opinion.
