Relentless media bashing forced his resignation. He could have done what other front benchers did and organise an abortion, but he didn’t, he stood by his partner and we can never know why his marriage faltered… as almost half of all marriages do.
How close will he seat himself to Abbott who has already drawn battle lines with Turnbull?
A rare opportunity lost. But the long game is still alive in a quest to unite a genuine Conservative Government against the lunatic Left and the craven, mean-spirited Turnbull and his frightened disciples.
You are all class Barney, and this will not be the end of you, nor will it be the end of Australian conservatism.
Buy a beer for Abbott and start plotting the fall of Turnbull the Terrible.
