  • Exactly… no idea of how to line up a political kill… RT @Pollytics: but he doesnt have patience. #
  • @lmdallatorre No, Menzies didn't LIKE television but he was a natural on camera and radio. He just held the media in contempt. in reply to lmdallatorre #
  • RT @lyndons: Consider how the tables may turn if the 'real' author of 'concocted' email is publicly named 🙂 An IED waiting to happen. #
  • @lyndons Yes, except it's unlikely it was anyone other than Grech. Unless Erica dictated it! in reply to lyndons #
  • RT @thewetmale: Part of Mal's problem is he doesn't have a long-term hatred of Labor; what holds together Libs & Nats. #
  • RT @granleese: lacking political skills doesn't = bad future gov't. Less backslapping & focus on clever politics please! #
  • @granleese That's true, but a lack of political skills can stop you getting into government… in reply to granleese #
  • @granleese Seriously, the "clever politics" was on Turnbull's part. It casts doubt on his temperament and judgement. Juvenile politics. in reply to granleese #

  • RT @lyndons: In Govt Depts, never assume 🙂 If others knew Grech was starstruck with his "high" Lib connections… What would you feed him? #
  • @lyndons Stop it, now you've got me salivating with anticipation! in reply to lyndons #

  • Costello asked if his very presence was a threat to Turnbull's leadership: No, I could have put up my hand for the leadership on any day… #
  • Costello asked if he has really explained his reasons for leaving. Aren't you just avoiding an inevitable defeat at the next election? #
