Turnbull would win if leader, says Windsor
blog From the department of wishful thinking comes these comments from Independent MP Tony Windsor this week with respect to the leadership of the Liberal Party. According to Windsor, if Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull were to contest the upcoming September Federal Election as Leader of the Opposition, the Coalition would be a shoe-in for victory. The Courier Mail reports (we recommend you click here for the full article):
Mr Windsor says Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott are both unpopular and that “I think each of them have kept the other one in the game”. “If Malcolm Turnbull was leader of the opposition, for instance, I think it would be all over, red rover,” he told the ABC.
Polling over the past year has consistently suggested that Windsor’s right: The Australian population supports the Earl of Wentworth (and Kevin Rudd, for that matter) as preferred Prime Minister above Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard, and anecdotally, this writer has been present on many occasions where random members of the public have gone out of their way to inform Turnbull they would vote for the Coalition if he was leading it again.
Many in Australia’s technology sector have long suspected that the Coalition would have a radically different broadband policy if Turnbull were to regain the Liberal leadership, shifting much closer to Labor’s current NBN vision. Coupled with Turnbull’s opposition to the Gillard Government’s highly unpopular data retention and surveillance policy, this could make a Turnbull-led Coalition very attractive to the technology industry indeed, having the potential to reverse the Coalition’s political fortunes in the communications portfolio. Certainly many of us live in horror of Tony “I’m no Bill Gates” Abbott having control over the nation’s technology-related policy for the next three years.
