A proportion that must always be borne in mind by conservatives. The text below is from The Spectator Online. It’s a reminder that until Malcolm Turnbull pulled the pin on his own leadership, at least half the Liberal Party were for all practical purposes green-left socialists. No doubt something like that same proportion still are. As for what you read below, I am in complete agreement.
- The persecution of Katherine Deves has exposed a Culture War raging inside the Liberal Party. Inevitably, the ‘broad church’ of opposing ideological factions has fractured into open conflict where the Matt Keans of the party are actively throwing knives at the last remaining Blue Ribbon conservatives. It’s not a smart plan – so thank goodness their aim is crap.
- ‘With the defeat of John Howard, the war, once fought around differences in approach to social policies and economics, took on a vicious and ruthless hue, as the Fabian Malcom Turnbull successfully sought to tear down and discredit the traditionally conservative values of Tony Abbott, blithely dismissive of the fact that it was those very values that had won the Liberals government in 2013’s landslide victory. For a decade now the Liberals have continuously sought to suppress those differences, failing miserably. It’s now up to conservatives across the nation to take matters into their own hands – and save the Liberal party from itself…’ writes Spectator Australia Editor Rowan Dean, in this week’s lead.
- If anything, the (not so quiet) Australians are fed up with the whole circus. When asked what people wanted of their leaders at the next election, overwhelmingly the answer was ‘to be left alone’. The micromanaging, heavy-handed, Big Covid State has exhausted people’s tolerance for politicians. This can be seen with the growing suspicion about the validity of health orders – orders which were bent and broken on the sly by members of the public.
I’m all for conservatives taking matters into our own hands but the more you chat with others about politics the more frightening everything appears to be. Do we really want our own version of Joe Biden as Prime Minister? You do know Albanese is from the socialist left.
