Mr Malcolm Turnbull new Prime Minister of Australia
'Everything comes to he who waits'
or rather more like Thomas Edison is believed to have said
'Everything comes to he who hustles while he waits'
The Honorable Mr Malcolm Turnbull has been sworn in as the 29th Prime Minister of Australia ! This also makes him the 5th Prime Minister that we have had in 5 years!
Mr Turnbull rolled Tony Abbott in a party room ballot on Monday night in what is regarded as as a walk-over 54-44 .
Julie Bishop was re-elected as Deputy leader with voting being 70-30.
Although over the years there has been many 'stabs in the back' not a drop of real blood has been spilt :)
Earlier this year Mr Abbott survived a 'spill' and won by the narrowest of margins however there has been rumblings going on for months and it finally came to a head on Monday when Julie Bishop and Malcolm Turnball called on the then PM Abbott for a party room 'spill' of positions!
Begrudgingly (my word) Mr Abbott agreed and in my opinion made the mistake of bringing it on the same day.
This I feel might have been his downfall as it did not give him time to get his 'followers' marshalled and he fell into the well laid out plan of Mr Turnbull/ Ms Bishop.
Well I'm going to stick my neck right out here and say that is my belief that Malcolm Turnbull is the man for the job.
My Patio Buddy (Geoff) and I have been discussing this for a long time and both of us have seen many leaders 'come and go' and most have been 'found wanting'!
Then again 'what would we know' ;)
My congratulations go out to Mr Turnbull and hope that he has the 'communications ability' to unite the Government and get on with the job of making Australia a GREAT country , only time will tell :)
