Given the ongoing vagaries of government, the short answer is, none of us know.
However, I hope Malcolm stays for the present.
This doesn’t mean I necessarily agree with his approach to how things should be done!
However, the people voted for a government led by Malcolm at the last election.
It was only a one vote victory, but a win by an inch is as good as a win by a mile.
The people voted for him, so Malcolm they should have.
At least until the next election when change will be possible.
The people will decide what needs to be done at that time.
All this mid-term chopping and changing is too much like ‘sleight of hand’.
Opinion polls mean that the pollsters have asked questions in an area where they already have a good idea what the answers will be, there are places where they are overwhelmingly labor, other areas where the voters are almost all liberal, all you need to do to get answers you want is to ask in the right place
