10. Yes...

...it was very quiet in QT today. Usually when Abbott avoids answering questions properly there is an uproar on the left, but today, it was subdued.

I would love to see him be rolled too. He set Julia up for it, so it would be nice to see the tides turn on him.

Sadly though, under a year wouldn't be a record. Our shortest time in history PM is Frank Forde, our 15th PM who only served 7 days. He came into office after Curtin died, and so Forde contested Chifley for the leadership, but lost.

Currently, there are only six PMs who have served under a year in office. Most (3) were from the Country party, 2 from Labor, and 1 from Free Trade party. So this means he would be the first lib to be ousted in under a year.
