Simon says, "Bill's in like a shot"
My two dear and close friends in the Labor party would be pleased to hear your prediction.In any event, our latest Prime Minister will be out of office by May at the latest, and I predict our next one, Bill Shorten, will be in power for a decade. He has an iron grip on the Parliamentary Labor Party and is supported by a swathe of powerful unions across the political spectrum. The Liberals hold a one-seat majority that they will lose when K[er]ryn Phelps wins Wentworth.
I'm not sure about the decade... And not convinced about the next election. I feel people will want to punish the Coalition for deposing Malcolm, but I sense weariness rather than vengeance in conversations.
And I wonder if the wagons are circling Bill. He is not popular. Labor seems to win the 2 party preferred votes because people dislike the Coalition; Liberal alternatives seem more popular.
What are your thoughts?
