1. So if we do a bit of a calculation.....

The honeymoons in NSW, Vic and WA must be just about over.
The Qld LibGnats will start tearing themselves apart by the end of the year.
Tony will succumb to the vacuum emanating from his arse.
Malcolm TurnBS will probably mount a challenge.
Maybe, just maybe, Julia and Co. can hang on.
Now, if we can get Peter Costello to just say what he thinks.......


typo

2. If some destabilizing distraction like leadership speculation among the tories

Then that should seal then seal the deal on the rising tide of conservatism

3. In the last two days, the Coalition haven't moved for Suspension of Standing Orders at all.

And there's been nothing said in the House about Craig Thomson either.

I wonder if some of the more rational people on the Opposition benches have warned Tony to lay off for a bit. It wouldn't look good for them if Thomson tried to top himself, and perhaps some realise there's a real danger of it happening. Continually cutting short QT is also wearing a bit thin as a stunt as well.

The numbers out today would seem to confirm that Abbott's three-ring circus is getting a bit old hat.

Of course, money in the pocket doesn't hurt either.

4. Thanks Matilda

I believe that the Mad Monk has "lost"question time. The hysteria is beginning to evaporate.

5. Suspended Thomson votes with Coalition

Tony Abbott and Christopher Pyne scrambled for the exits in the House of Representatives this morning as suspended Labor MP Craig Thomson lent his "tainted" vote to the Opposition.
(snip)

Traditionally, crossbench MPs never back gag motions.

So as Mr Thomson moved to vote for the Coalition, both the Opposition Leader and his manager of business tried to leave the chamber to cancel out his support.

Mr Pyne made it out of the door to negate Mr Thomson's vote but Mr Abbott could not escape in time and his vote was recorded.

Wish I'd seen it - too funny!

But what is Craig Thomson playing at?

6. had enough of Tony Abbott

I recon that most people have just had enough of Mr (negativity)Abbott.I got on back on the local member this week.He stated that the local council will be hit with a $30,500 carbon tax bill,and that some one has to pay.Well how about this in the local shire there is a population of nearly 20,000 so dividing that into 30,500 gives one ratepayer about 50 cents each to pay,so all this doom and gloom that Mr.Abbott is carrying on about is just plain rubbish and I believe that many people are awake to him...watch this space
