Default Re: The Malcolm Turnbull thread

The Turnbull speech mocking Trump will do him no harm in the polls i imagine and to be honest i was just a little bit pleased for him. He's no fool, ya gotta give him that. He's a bit of a coward when it comes to SSM, climate change and Adani but at least he isnt going down the 'make Australia great' path and the flag waving bullshit of Bernardi and One Nation. In a sense, he was mocking them as much as Trump.

Having said that, Pauline is defending him http://www.news.com.au/national/poli...6c56bbf342b47f which in my view illustrates the idiotic confusion engulfing the Aussie alt-right.

The biggest danger in politics, in my opinion, is a lack of intelligence and limited education. Just vote for smart people, with degrees and secondary degrees and people who have lived in different countries and have seen a bit of the world and have read a bit of Nietzsche and a have some kind of grasp of history and it should be ok. (bit out of context that...but what the fuck)
