Malcolm Turnbull seizes power in Parliamentary coup.
“Catastrophic” Premier Tony Abbott ousted by party colleagues.
The Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been ousted by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull in an internal party coup.
Turnbull defeated Abbott 54 votes to 44 in the internal Liberal Parliamentary Party poll.
Turnbull a former Barrister and Merchant Banker from Sydney who led the failed Australian Repulican movement of the 1990s has one enormous thing going for him.
He is not Tony Abbott.
The two years of Tony Abbott’s leadership were a twilit nightmare of lies, fear and xenophobia.
The performance in the Australian Parliament on July 18th, 2014 cannot be viewed as anything other than an attempt to help start World War 3 on behalf of god knows who.
Abbott deserves to be remembered with opprobrium and disgust on that basis of that single cynical, evil performance alone.
