The downside and the upside

The downside for those who would quite like to see Abbott turfed out (at least if it would mean a completely new direction in policy) is that I think the malcontents have given the pro-Abbott faction too much time to consolidate their position.

The upside is that, even if he survives this challenge to his authority, the nation now knows that the party is divided, and a good portion share the public's view that they are being led by a weirdly out of touch dimwit with no good policy sense who doesn't know who to listen to.   That can't augur well for the future life of the government under Abbott.
