AUSTRALIA will have a new prime minister after Scott Morrison was elected leader of the Liberal Party.
Mr Morrison won the vote in the party room meeting 45 to 40 after days of tense meetings and panicked phone calls among party members as the country watched its government fall into disarray.
Mr Morrison will become Australia’s sixth prime minister in 11 years.
His deputy leader will be Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg who won the vote with an “overwhelming” vote.
A defeated Malcolm Turnbull stood down from the leadership following a vote of no confidence in his ability to lead the party to the next election after he called the long-awaited meeting to finalise the challenge for the top job that started on Tuesday.
Challenger Peter Dutton hoped he had the numbers to pull off the move he attempted to make earlier this week, gathering the 43 signatures he needed to force Mr Turnbull to call the meeting.
But those who signed the document sent their votes elsewhere in the secret ballot, with many who put their name to the paper understood to be supporters of Mr Turnbull’s.
Mr Morrison had pledged his support for Mr Turnbull all week.

this is sort of Middle road win.

Sith-lord Dutton under the tutelage of Darth Abbott, was talking about a Leadership Coup during the week.
the Honorable Turnbull sick of the disruptions caused by the Dark Side called a vote, and won.
but the dark side wasn't done  
Through an Aggressive Campaign of intimidation the Dark side managed to get together a Petition for Turnbull to hold a 2nd leadership vote. 
the Honorable Turnbull, Accepting that he no longer had the broader confidence of the Liberal Party stated he would hold the vote today He would not be putting his name forward and he would resign from Parliament(currently only a one seat majority so this forces an election) .
Julia Bishop Put her had Up (she is by far the most popular with the Majority of voters)  but the Liberals deeply held Misogynistic principals prevented Her selection as leader ending any chance of Winning the next election.
Scott Morrison (ScoMo) is a Conservative Christian So one would expect him to be as Racist, Misogynistic and homophobic as Dutton... and in a personal way he seems to be... BUT.... a big But... he has in the Past put Secular Values First (most notably in the Gay Marriage debate) 

He is probably not going to be great but could at least be OK, I don't think he is going to be able to turn the Liberal party fortunes around... because the Biggest problem in the liberal party is the Far Right (Dutton and Abbott) and despite being popular with party members(Old White Racists) they are not just unpopular but Hated by the majority of the electorate because of the Stupid Backward Bullshit they have been wasting Our time and money on.

Australia will quite possibly have a Labor government back in control next year,  after the Lib-National's ignoble self-destruction today...

After this week's disastrous performance, those extreme right-whingers among the coalition --  Tony Abbott, Eric Abetz, Peter Dutton, Michaela Cash and company (and along with all of their coal industry/polluters sponsorships) -- should take themselves off and form a new Conservatives Party;  while the centrists and moderates ("wets") and a few rogue National Party elements can try to reform as a New Liberals party..

And then see if they can form a more stable and united coalition --  otherwise, they might find themselves sitting in opposition for a long, long time to come.

While my personal preference will always be to have a moderately-left socially-minded and fiscally-responsible worker-oriented Labor Party in control (or maybe a Labor-(light-)green coalition..),  a healthy democracy still needs a robust, healthy and halfway-respectable mob in opposition to balance things out and prevent too many excesses..

G'Day

The Opposition Leader noted that “politics is a brutal business” and described his rival as a man who used the word “love” in his public remarks more than anyone else.
Mr Shorten lost the 2016 election to the outgoing prime minister but paid tribute to Mr Turnbull on the day he was forced to leave the job.

“For Malcolm, for Lucy, for their family and for his personal staff, who are as loyal and as close as family, this is a very hard day indeed,” the Labor leader said in a statement today.
“For all our verbal conflict, for all the fierce words we’ve exchanged, I hope Malcolm knows that I have always respected him as a formidable opponent... as an advocate of great intellect and eloquence and as someone who came to parliament, relatively late in life, because he was driven by the desire to serve.
“Australian politics will always need people like that, on all sides.”
Mr Shorten said he would often speak at the same events as Mr Turnbull and noticed something small but significant.
“I don’t think any Australian prime minister has used the word ‘love’ more frequently in his public remarks,” he said.

“Anyone who listened to him speak could always hear his deep and profound love for his wife Lucy, for their children and grandchildren but also his abiding love for our country.”
Earlier, the Labor leader described the Liberal spill as the result of a “brutal campaign” to tear down Mr Turnbull and said the government would remain hopelessly divided.
Mr Shorten said there was a lack of leadership in Canberra as he accused the Liberal Party of not treating Mr Turnbull the way a prime minister deserved to be treated.

You got to admit this is a class act by the Labour Opposition leader snob

No. the whole leadership spill is a waste of our time and money. People are getting pretty annoyed with the personal ambitions and infighting on both sides of politics it been over a decade since a PM has ran a full term. and there has been no good reason to topple any of them, beyond the party room being worried about polling....and generally still losing anyway.... they don't seem to understand we don't really like any of them Rolling Eyes

For the Left(Labour), it is good because he Right has just imploded and really pissed of the Majority, SO Labour just has to Not Implode to win the next election. It will probably also be good for the Minor parties as there is a lot of people dissatisfied with the major parties (I'm a minor parties supporter myself)

but like I said in the first post it sort of a 'middle' result overall if your talking about the Left/right Balance of power, and not the major parties fortunes. ScoMo is better than Dutton, but not as good as Julie Bishop... But we all would have preferred if they had just let Turnbull finish the term and go to the election. And stop making a mockery of the Prime Minister-ship   snobby

Why don’t any of them finish their term? Seems a bit unfair.
