Spare a thought for the poor old Labor Party. Stuck with Bill Shorten.
There must be some hardheads in the parliamentary party and within the union movement who are beginning to realise that appointing Shorten wasn’t such a good idea.
It’s not that there’s necessary anything wrong with him but he has managed to achieve the near impossible by being both bland and invisible at the same time.
If Turnbull takes the leadership of the Liberal party and is able to campaign in the next federal election as an incumbent Prime Minister, he will slaughter Shorten. The Labor Party could be faced with a long time in the political wilderness.
