Well I’d predicted it some months back and I’m now rather unsurprised that former leader of the Australian Republic Movement, Malcolm Turnbull is now the Leader of the Opposition in Australia. I have said privately that I regard Turnbull as the most significant threat to Labor from the Liberal camp, and in spite of his arrogance and somewhat larrikin nature, I stand by that statement. In the next 2 years Turnbul has a lot of time to establish himself not merely as a Leader, but as someone connected to the people.
Watch out Kevin Rudd. Your honeymoon is definitely over now.
