American politics is shall we say that's divisive and bitter politics is a brutal business after all. But perhaps this is Noah mall true than in Australia. Prime ministers appear to fall from power more often than the average football club manager of the most recent victim, Malcolm tumble. Use an appearance on Australian television to name nine plotters as key figures in his downfall. His of it'll of what the foam prime minister had to say, Katie had a great sighing. I think it was Jack Lang's originally that in the great rice of life will was Beck self interest. Because you know, it's trying, but it was so obvious that the coup the insurgency that occurred in the last part of August was so obvious that it was going to be destructive with so obvious that there was not going to be any upside to it. And of course, that's what's turned out. It really never occurred to me that senior members of the government. The tickly people with such solemn responsibilities. Paid a dot in the home affairs minister responsible for Estrada's national security for heaven sake. Mystic security Matisse Coleman, you know, the leader of the government in the Senate Greg hunt. The health minister, Steven Chabot at tried minister never occurred to me that does people would act in a why that was to be side damaging to the to the government to the party, and frankly to the nation. I mean stability is is very important and disturbing that stability should be done with the very clear justification and a very clear purpose.

And in the last couple of weeks has returned back to he's homicide side mansion in the most exclusive suburb in Sydney and tightening. These so pitchy to as as as a nine nine and try and try and give himself some sort of a positive legacy. He also didn't seem to have any real idea of why his own party at that point decided to kick him out. Well, he if we got back to twenty Dane, hey, challenged, then prime minister tiny, but he used the I guess the excuse of the raisin fa- challenging Tony Abbott bang that the government led by Tony.
