Glenn Milne has an article today yesterday on the in-fighting that is occuring within the Liberal party, in particular the attacks against Julie Bishop.
THERE is a new grouping inside the federal Liberal Party. It is called “the big swinging dicks”. Unless of course you are not a member. In which case you call it, ironically, “the little swinging dicks”.
Julie Bishop knows who they are. She and her supporters are keeping a beady eye on them. And they would be well advised to, if she wants to remain as deputy party leader.
He goes on to say:
So much for the history of Bishop’s fall from grace. What of her future? Of this my Liberal emailer is certain: “The next phase of their plan to have Bishop dumped as deputy is already under way.”
If you think Machiavelli had said it all on political skulduggery, listen to this: “The strategy is to book her for fundraising events and so on, then cancel early due to a “lack of interest”.
Can’t you just feel the love in the party room?
