It is getting difficult to express in a cartoon all the emotions and trends following the removal of Tony Abbott by Turnbull. But I have tried. Better cartoonist can do better.
Here we have to first note the reaction of the Murdoch Press. Mostly negative. Abbott was the Murdoch's chosen puppet — no-one else. Straight away, the Murdoch Press mentions a $4 billion deal to keep the Nationals happy: a bigger hole in a national budget already in tatters. But all is not as it seems.
The ability to execute its own citizens has been a mark of tyrannical government from Rome in the days of the Caesars to Moscow during the Great Purge in the 1930s.
Indeed, the only concrete policy issue touched on on Monday night was to confirm the Abbott regime's whacky "Direct Action" climate policy. It looks like Malcolm has learned from his mistakes as it was his commitment to an emissions trading scheme (ETS) that allowed Abbott to take his job as opposition leader by one vote.
People living in Mandurah are rich. Many are retirees and those who can afford it, have beautiful mansions by the river/lake/waterways. But with Turdy's suicidal disdain of global warming, these mansions will be drowning by 2120. By 2090, the water level, lapping the sea walls, will be destroying their lawns — and this with only a 2 degrees Celsius increase on present average temperature worldwide.
Voting for Tony Abbott will only accelerate this drowning process because Abbott plans to inject more and more extra CO2 in the atmosphere. "Coal is the future of humanity" says Tony...
Good luck to you, waterfront owners.

The 9/11 Heist
Here we see in this morning OZ front page a couple of gigantic opinionated garbage. First the column on the right is denialist poop about Global warming... The personnel quoted is linked to a dubious outfit that has no credibility whatsoever. The Global Warming Policy Foundation is a DENIALIST organisation that uses scientists with confused views all designed to help the coal and fossil fuel lobby carry on as usual... In a couple of years, when the shit hits the fan, they will disappear into thin air, like the garbage they give out.
Guess what... Lawson, Lord Monckton and all the other fantasists are part of this kennel. Do not believe a word of what is printed here on this subject. It's detritus.
No matter how long he stays in office, Tony Abbott is likely to be Australia's last monarchist prime minister. Here's why, writes Tim Mayfield.
