Shorten "promises better" on stopping corruption, where's the Government of Turnbull?

Reader Barry on Chairman Mal

I've not read a better analysis on Malcolm Turnbull than this from BarryJ:

What a hopeless, dimwitted lot is the parliamentary Liberal Party who selected Mr Turnbull to lead them.

Malcolm Turnbull is an empty suit; his cabinet vacuous.

Turnbull is not the top-flight businessman built up in the media, he is a money manipulator, a merchant banker.

A businessman has the ability to lead a business day-by-day, to operate and LEAD an organisation towards a target.

Where leaders lead, Turnbull meanders.

He meandered into a double-dissolution election he said was about union corruption.  Then forgot to mention union corruption during the campaign.

The result?  Tony Abbott's 35 seat majority slashed to a wafer thin 1 seat buffer.

And to remove doubt about his principles, Turnbull used the week or so of post-election uncertainty to cut a "no damage to unions" deal with Bob Katter who is financed by the CFMEU.

Debt and deficit are soaring but still the high-spending promises flow.

A couple of days ago Turnbull produced this video about the latest spending extravaganza instalment - more Gonski.

Thanks BarryJ for putting it so clearly.

I hope the Liberal Party is listening.
