Krudd and Gillard were demonstrably of mediocre performance.
Whether Abbott will be better only time will tell;but I would bet on him!

I’m betting he’ll be like other ‘conservative’ politicians. He’ll be great for big financial interests. Private contractors taking over what should be public services will do well also

Everyone else? Not so much.

The worst hurt will be the poor and the sick.

Same as it ever was.

I don’t know if the conservatives in Australia are as nutty as the US, as I don’t know much about Australia in general, but if that’s what they want, that’s what they get.

Murdoch owns somewhere around 70% of the media in Australia and ran a negative campaign against Rudd that William Randolph Hearst would have been proud of, even importing people from his NY Post to teach the Aussie media what a smear campaign really looks like.

I don’t know about Australia, but here in Canada they are at least as cruel as U.S. conservatives. I got to be homeless thanks to a ‘conservative’ premier who decided that the best way to get people on welfare to get off their lazy asses and get jobs was to cut welfare 22%.

Didn’t work. Suddenly homelessness became a major problem.

Not that he cared. He quit before the chickens came home to roost and got a nice wingnut welfare position.

Last I heard he was the only former Ontario governor who still had police protection.

From the “analysis” sidebar on this BBC article:

You sense from voters that Mr Abbott’s victory is not so much a ringing endorsement as a rejection of Labor. He’s a conservative who has promised a tough line on immigration and asylum-seekers. He opposes gay marriage and has been a sceptic on climate change.

In other words, a bigoted, racist, anti-science wingnut who’d fit right in with the GOP.

Well, that’s why Murdoch pulled out all the stops in backing him.

Fox News here isn’t just an aberration; it’s News Corp’s worldwide business plan.
