HATING ON TURNBULL – I’ve known Geoff Greene for over 15 years, I’ve worked with him on two campaigns while he was the Liberal Party State Director in Queensland in the 2000s, and I have plenty of respect for him.

“The Turnbull government is at war with the people. This is a government which hates their own constituents. The Liberal Party has lost touch with what it stands for and will be decimated unless it changes tack. Across the next electoral cycle the Liberals will lose power federally and in every state with the exception, perhaps, of Tasmania.”

Those are not the words of the opposition, but of one of the Liberal Party’s leading strategists of the past 20 years.

Geoffrey Greene has worked as Liberal Party state director in both South Australia and Queensland and was one of the architects behind John Howard’s successful election campaigns between 1996 and 2007…

“They would not have supported the warfare this government has declared on its citizens,” Mr Greene said.

“The Turnbull government has attacked every core constituency, small business, superannuants, pensioners, families with children, all because they have a budget that is out of control.

“They have not done anything about their own backyard. Public servants still fly at the front of the plane.”

And there is plenty more where that came from.

Not having spoken to Geoff for a while, I don’t know whether these words presage a political switch to Cory’s Conservatives (Geoff is now back in South Australia) to are merely another Liberal voice crying in the wilderness, but there are more happening of both lately, which is not a good sign for the government.
