And to round off an appalling day for right wing parties on both sides of the Tasman Malcolm Turnbull is goneburger.
I have just been provided with a request for a meeting of the Parliamentary Liberal Party. It has 43 signatures. As soon as they are verified by the Whips, which should not take long, the meeting will be called.

There is an interesting historical similarity. He served for the same time as Labor PM in the 1970s Gough Whitlam. It is there the similarities end. Whitlam achieved a great deal of good and was sacked in exceedingly dodgy constitutional grounds. Turnbull has achieved nothing and is gone because of the feral nature of his caucus.
And Peter Dutton, a Texas based popcorn maker, not a Queensland based psychopath, has become an Internet sensation and has offered to be Australia’s next PM.
They could do a lot worse …
I’m awake and still the people’s choice for Prime Minister of Australia. I take great honor in it and will represent you with pride from Texas.
Love each other a little more and we’ll get through this together, mates! 🇳🇿https://t.co/YjsmHEc93z
