Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

Australia has a new Prime Minister: Scott Morrison.

What’s my opinion of him? Here’s a simple graphic I located earlier.

I thought Morrison was very effective as Immigration Minister, but the shine was mostly illusion. When the leadership changed from Abbott to Turnbull, Morrison changed too. I don’t hope for much from him.

Commentary from Mark Latham:

THE MALCOLM MORRISON GOVERNMENT

Malcolm Turnbull knifed Peter King to become the Member for Wentworth.
He knifed Brendan Nelson to become Liberal Party Leader.
He knifed Tony Abbott to become Prime Minister.
To hear Turnbull in his final press conference complain about “insurgents, wreckers and vengeance” is the greatest hypocrisy you will ever hear.
Turnbull in effect has handed over government to his right-hand-man, Scott Morrison, who as Treasurer only had one economic policy: massive immigration numbers, with their negative impact on urban congestion, housing affordability and wages growth.
Like Turnbull, Morrison also knifed Tony Abbott to get ahead personally.
This will be a Malcolm Morrison Government.
Josh Frydenberg developed one of the worst energy policies imaginable and today the Liberal Party rewarded him by making him Deputy Leader.
For the past three years the Liberals have been a public policy disaster for Australia.
Today nothing changed.

Every word true, damn it.

I feel like throwing myself down the Gemonian Stairs after this.
