Gives a tax cut to big business costing $50 billion over 10 years, with most of the profits going to foreign shareholders or the US government and no word on how he is going to fund this.
All this when he has produced record debt and deficit.
Why should we think this is anything else but...
It may be a big call, but unless Tony gets traction in the polls, plan B may be Morrison.IMO
He seems to be the only politician, that can speak his mind and get away with it.
I'm sure if he was made leader of the coalition, he would come under a lot more pressure, but he seems to handle it...
As much as I hate to say it, poor old Tones has done his dash and perhaps from this point, the best thing he can do for the party and the nation as a whole is facilitate an orderly transition to a new leader.
While a favourite of the Left when he's a rung or two below looking enviously up...

Question; Do you want Pauline Hanson to return to politics?
Vote Yes.....36866 No......44154.

I may even change my vote and vote...
Seeing as Costello says he won't change his mind, this godbothering pugilist might be the next best bet for Australia.
It seems that godbotherers are de rigeur for leaders these days.
Even the old KGB toecutter Putin bends the knee weekly in St.Petersburg.
