Look the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull hasn’t changed the world in his 166 days in office – let’s get another one.
That seems to be the way we roll in Australia.
Since 2007, Australia has averaged a new Prime Minister every two years. Do we want to follow Italy? It has a chaotic, wildly swinging, political system and in the last 12 years has chewed through 17 Prime Ministers. They used to be the unstable Western country we joked about. Now here we go again getting ‘disappointed‘ with a PM before we give them a reasonable chance to lead.
I’m not saying we should give the PM a free ride, I’m saying we should give him some time to do his job.
Of course, there are a raft of issues Turnbull and his government need to deal with over the next few years (not first 166 days).
