Writing On The Wall For Australia’s Worst Ever Prime Minister

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD EDITORIAL

19 March 2015

Worst PM EverThis “being in government” business is proving to be all too hard for Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his ministers.

Too hard to frame a fair budget. Too hard to make tough decisions to place government finances on a sustainable path. Too hard to negotiate with a “feral” Senate. Too hard to be civil and constructive on policy options. Too hard to explain to voters the need for reform. Too hard to find a consistent message.

Mr Abbott has become erratic at best. It is as though he is finding it all too hard to work out what governments do. Governments lead. They prosecute their policies clearly, fairly and consistently.

And they seek solutions to problems. Unless, of course, they are the problem.
