I know I am going against the grain of pubic opionion in saying this, but I am declaring my support for Opposition leader Brendon Nelson. Its easy to forget that the great Prime minister John Howard was underestimated and mocked for many years before he finally gained the recognition he deserved, and he earnt that though hard work and perseverence — nothing less.
Brendan Nelson continue’s his grulling listening tour around this Great nation of our’s, getting in touch with the people taht Kevin Rudd’s government has already abbandoned in only a few month’s of being in Power. If thats’ not Leadership and vision, I don’t know what it.
Malcolm Turnbull seem’s to be using a tradition of destabilization that is more in line with the way Labor opposition’s have acted in the passed with respect to Leadership challenges. Its not becoming of the Liberal Party to engage in such gutter tactics, and I would say to Mr Turnbull— who seems to be a talented fellow, despite his Leftist and Republican leaning’s — to Cool your heels and support the Man whom the Party saw fit to apoint as Leader. THe electrate doe’s not take kindly to snake in the grass campaigns for leadership — just look at the damage Labors faction’s did to there party during the Wildnerness years with Kim Beazley and Simon Cream. No
What Conservative’s need now is unity not ambition and division. And with Dr Nelsons committmant to the hard yards, and his unshackable believe in himself, I firmly believe he is the best Man for the job right at this time.
As another Liberal leader once said “,life was’nt meant to be Easy”!!! Its a hard slog now for the party, but one build’s ones character in the trench’s of battle, not growing Fat off the largesse of Ministerial privelege.
I will leave the last word to Dr Nelson as I pledge for the last time my support for him – – a good Man.
