Today, on Friday August 24, 2018, the leadership spill in Australian politics came to its hectic conclusion.
In the race to find
love a new Prime Minister (bye Malcolm Turnbull), three suitors were vying for the final rose job.
In the blue power suit corner, we had Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and deputy Liberal leader.
Over in the beige corner stood Scott Morrison. Sco Mo. The (then) Treasurer of Australia. Spoiler, sorry.
To answer your question, who is Prime Minister, the answer is Scott Morrison.
As for how all of us feel about this leadership spill? (Thanks for asking, Canberra.)
Some of us are, rightly, angry. Others are completely confused. A small percentage are likely purchasing flights to New Zealand as we speak. And others honestly don’t know what else to do but laugh.
Or create memes.
Here are the thoughts (and lols) of you, the Australian people, as shared on Twitter.

Surely this is the image of today’s arrivals for the leadership meeting.
