Hmmm – my Turnbull notion was not that silly

Posted by Dave Bath on 2011-08-05


Hmmm…. maybe I’m not so silly after all, with my 2011-07-23 "Malcolm, PM with Party of One" suggesting Labor offer Malcolm Turnbull the Lodge as non-ALP PM leading a Labor/Green/Indy minority government – given the 2011-08-03 Essential Poll putting Malcolm Turnbull as number 3 preferred ALP leader, at 11%, just one point below Julia Gillard on 12%, (with Kevin Rudd at 37% and the useless Steven Smith on 7%).

If this poll gets some traction, and Turnbull overtakes Gillard as preferred ALP leader, my idea avoids any charge of Turnbull being seen as an opportunistic traitor.

Seriously now, what else can the ALP do?  It’s got to be their best chance of getting rid of Gillard while not looking like a cynical desperate machine-driven coup to favor another Labor hack.
