Yeah but BG, Michael O'Brien isn't by any stretch of the imagination the Alternative.Indeed not but that takes me back to one of my least favourite things about modern politics - the least worst option! Many voters don't like either option but vote for the one they dislike the least such is the state of the game in this and many other western democracies which have been hijacked by the Political Class.
I don't think O'Brien is there to be elected, with the Libs suffering such a huge loss in the last poll I think he is a chair warmer for the next likely leader who will come forward when it is a bit more likely that they will have a decent shot at unseating Labor.
I would have said that was at least another full cycle away but with the current crisis who knows?
And a note about how good my political nouse is, I confidently predicted that Trump would NEVER be elected on the grounds that despite him having a large and growing supporter base at the time he would not get enough votes from among "ordinary voters". Oh dear.......
But surely, Andrews is no Trump. At least you can point to achievements with Andrews. Infrastructure, job creation (pre-COVID) etc. he is no least worse, he is simply much, much better than O'Brien. What's the political class? I know it is a popular slogan, along with political elites, uttered by people like Trump, Johnson, Meghan McCain, Le Pen, whilst standing to inherit large sums of money. Yes those fighters for the little man!!
Trump, blunder after blunder noted for his disdain for the military and reporters (especially Black Female reporters).
