And to that you could add something else that's a big political worry - the burgeoning income inequality and its various spin-off effects

What Went Wrong With Australian Politics?

Viewed from afar, Australia is the envy of the world with its abundant resources and an economy that’s gone 27 years without a recession. But scratch beneath the surface and it’s a different story. An era of stability and economic reform has been replaced by a revolving door of leadership and politics trumping policy. The nation is sliding in international rankings for innovation and education, leaving it struggling for economic momentum even as global growth picks up.

I am not sure why you reckon that JB is not PM material.
I have not seen anyone else who is, on either side.
The problem was never who was the leader, the problem was the inability to get the various egos to work together and sell a coherent message to the electorate.
JB was not seen as a member of either the progressives or the conservatives, she was a loyal member of the liberal party.
And what was her reward?
Chucked out in the first ballot.
The coalition will be demolished next election.
Julie Bishop may have been able to limit the damage.

Mull,

I love Julie Bishop also.
I have had the pleasure of meeting her and hearing her speak at informal Liberal Party meetings.
She is a class act but sadly not PM material.
Liberals will get a female PM soon enough but not Julie.
Back in the day, the person who impressed me most at the Lib Conference was Abbott, who duly got elected as PM some time later and got Julie as his Deputy.
So the Party has done the right thing by her. Why make somebody leader just to fill some artificial quota?? Do it on merit.
Sadly I think the best PM - a guy - is still sitting in the back benches. Methinks some of the cabinet ministers sense the competition and are deliberately keeping him down.
Will be interesting to see if Morrison picks him.

USA! It’s been real, mate.

My Biggest Sadness was to see Julie Bishop terminated on the first ballot.
I thought she stood head and shoulders above the other two.
No baggage, has not made a fuss in a delicate portfolio.
Always thought she would be a good PM, and a compromise between all the male egos.
Sadly, the first real chance to have a female coalition PM is gone.
I am going to vote informal.
Mick

Actually, nip, personally, I really don't care. Haven't for some time. I've never watched Neigbours or Home and Away and local politics is about on a par with the quality and content of that muck. But anyway, each to their own.

it's not that we don't care, it's just that we are numb

Isha K summarised what a lot of you had to say: "Get your s--t together". Here are some of the other responses we got:

A lot of you are angry about all the leadership speculation
Madeline H called it "absolutely ridiculous":

"A f***ing embarrassment."

And Alex K called it "a complete waste of time," while Fiona HB said all of this means she has "no faith left for either party":

"I am ropable. I am disgusted that our government is so tied up in fighting amongst themselves than governing the country."

A lot of you agreed with Hamish P, and thought this whole week had been "terribly embarrassing":

"[It] makes Parliament House look like a pack of short-sighted and power-hungry toddlers, not deserving of the votes they've won."

Some of you think our Parliament is broken
Genevieve KS thinks the system might have been better in South Africa:
--------------------------------------

democracy is good but if you let it run wild then it will become "damn-- crazy". that is what do we see in Canberra nowadays .
my words, clean our own sh3t first, before worry about others.
