Here comes Tony

Despite his promise of “no wrecking, no undermining and no sniping” after losing, Mr Abbott appeared to take a little dig at his side of politics.

“Border protection policy the same, national security policy the same, economic policy the same, even same-sex marriage policy the same, and climate change policy the same. In fact, the rhetoric is the same.”

If this isn’t sniping, I don’t know what is. What Abbott is saying in effect is that nothing is changed and the government except the leader.

What a back-hander at Malcolm Turnbull!

There is clearly significant unhappiness within the Parliamentary Liberal party about the Turnbull succession.  All it needs is someone to articulate that unhappiness for it to become a festering sore.

And who better than Tony Abbott?

Of course, Cory Bernardi sees himself as the darling of the right but most people would regard him as a dangerous crack pot with some pretty nasty views on a range of Social issues.

But he will be nothing like the lightning rod that Tony Abbott will provide for the malcontents.  (No pun intended)

You can be pretty sure that Tony Abbott is well aware of the great political resurrections of the past.

Expect Abbott to run the “deposing an incumbent prime minister” line. It worked for Kevin Rudd and I expect he thinks it will work for him.

Poor old Tony doesn’t realise is that the electorate was sick and tired of  him and that almost everybody was glad to see him go.
