    She’s probably not wrong about Morrison, she is wrong about why she lost. Supposedly, she is on the same side as Molan, yet Payne won the first round of voting. Her inability to broker a deal with someone on her team meant both of them were fighting for the 3rd place on the ballot and guaranteeing one of them missed out. Had she put her ego aside she could have guaranteed Molan 1 and she would have got 3, excluding Payne.

    She is not wrong about ScoMo’s character, or lack of, from what others who are or have been close to the PM have said.
    Untrustworthy, duplicitous, unprincipled, win-at-any-cost, and hypocrite sums him up.
    Unfortunately, short of a (hopeful) coup in the Liberal Party, Each-Way Albo is the alternative.

    Bucc, I think this intervention by CFW sealed her fate.

    I’ll always be grateful to her for being the only Liberal to speak up for Cardinal Pell.

    Both Abbott and Howard wrote court references for Cardinal Pell.

    I don’t recall either unloading a truckload of manure post defeat, both being humiliating and in their own electorates.

    Senators appear to be entitled beings, guaranteed spots at the trough provided they are at the top of the sheet. All the effort comes from intra-party politicing, not facing the electorate on individual merit.

    She doesn’t impress me one bit.

  5. C.L. says:

    Calli, I don’t thing sentencing references are the same thing as speaking out but I agree with you about the sour grapes.

  6. Buccaneer says:

    I think you’ll find this is closer to the mark.

    In the end though the fight is about members getting to vote in preselections and those who have lost power playing silly games to hold onto it (that’s Hawke). Politics is never a purity contest though and it always comes down to managing numbers, she had the numbers but didn’t use them wisely. It’s unfortunately what happens to those who think their cause is pure enough that they don’t tend to the basics.

    CFW did an enormous amount of good, she would be well placed to keep pushing the party reform process, the games are a sign it’s working.

    WE have a very low class political caste here in Australia.

    Molan had to be higher because he has a personal following. CFW misplayed it.
