Gotta love it when an international observer describes ol’ Tone’s performance as “Abbott has proven so incapable of clear policy thinking, so unwilling to consult with even his own ministers and advisers, and so poor at communicating that he has to go.” Ouch. The Council on Foreign Relations was not mincing their words.
Of course, it doesn’t matter what foreigners think. Or even what an overwhelming majority of the Australian population think. It only matter what his own caucus thinks. And it’s pretty clear a majority of his caucus think he’s shit and his days are numbered.
After barely surviving the spill motion AGAINST NOBODY his backbenchers made it clear he was only going to survive until his next fuckup. No more captain’s calls! Surely Abbott is not so detached from reality that this is beyond his capability? Surely he can last for a while without making any unilateral decisions that alienate his backbenchers?
