Last night, after the results of the leadership challenge that ended Tony Abbotts time in office, I was at a loss for words. That, and angry! What must the rest of the world think of us with 5 changes of leader in little over 5 years?
At a time when good relationships between other nations is paramount, and a strong, united Government is needed, it seems that we have been failed again. This kind of in-party fighting reminds me of a room full of toddlers – spitting dummies and saying “I wont be your friend any more”. Is that the impression we want to give to the rest of the world? Trying to explain to my children what had happened to result in a new Prime Minister this morning, left me stuck for words – for a way to explain what the ‘heck’ went on.
I still can’t quite believe it and hope that somehow, some time in the near future, we manage to ELECT a government that is stable and has the best interests of our country at heart.
Is anyone else feeling this dismayed?
