After yesterday’s revelation that Malcolm Turnbull donated $1.75 million to the cash-strapped NSW Liberal Party during last year’s election campaign, Labor has snatched the opportunity to accuse Malcolm of having “basically bought himself an election”.
No wonder Malcolm Turnbull was so desperate to keep his secret – he basically bought himself an election. I think the Australian people will be shocked by this admission – it stinks. Malcolm Turnbull had to buy his way out of trouble in the dying days of his disastrous election campaign.If Malcolm Turnbull didn’t have $1.75 million in his back pocket he wouldn’t be the leader of the Liberal Party – and he wouldn’t be Prime Minister.
Seems that not all the criticism is coming from Labor, either. Liberal MP Craig Kelly mocked his decision and implied it was a shithouse investment. “The PM is known for his investment skill and judgment – and a one seat majority shows it was a good investment.”
