BRIGITTE Dwyer is certainly not the only one who appreciates Malcolm Turnbull’s well-thought-out, liberal positions on a variety of issues.
What those who criticise him for not being a team player fail to realise, is that he’s doing everything possible to give the Liberals a chance at long-term appeal and electoral success.
The current Labor government has been almost universally acknowledged as a failure in terms of its political tactics and lack of policy vision. Why, then, did the Tony Abbott-led Coalition find it so difficult to achieve a decisive victory at the last election? Because it offered nothing better.
Most Australians want straight-talking, intelligent, rational and well-spoken politicians, not endless spin and shallow rhetoric. As such, Turnbull is the best hope for both the Liberal Party and politics generally.
