    Mr Malcolm Turnbull - He seems to be the only decent politician out there. He also ran a large company.

    I think Scott Morrison will end up as leader.

    Not my personal preference (Turnbull is), but Morrison is closer to the current position of the party.

    I like Morrison.

    Would really love to see Julie Bishop, but it isnt going to happen.

    Does it only have to be from the LNP? I don't agree about Malc. He doesn't have any economic credentials. I'm putting in a bit for Julie Bishop.

    Can we steal John Key from NZ? :p

    Don't agree with his stance on a few issues, but he seems to know how to lead a team, show courage, and implement reform.

    Why does one need economic credentials? Hands up if you have said "I could do a better job" and you don't have economic credentials.

    I think he probably has more credentials than most in the party and definately more than the current PM and Treasurer put together.

    I think Turnbull really wants the job of a PM. I think he portrays himself as a nice and reasonable guy who can achieve utopia. In recent times, he has been making comments on various issues, distancing himself from others and quite frankly, a political opportunist. He needs the numbers and I think he might get the numbers he needs this time, if a spill occurs.

    I'll give it a crack. I don't see how I could possibly do a worse job than those in the seat in recent times!

    Malcolm may attract a lot of middle of the road people, who may have been alienated by some of TA's views like marriage equality and environmental views. I've heard MT speak on technology and was very impressed.

    Yay; two threads on the same (may as well be) subject.:p

    Yep; best of both worlds with Mal; the most left wing Liberal we've got. ;) Should be able to keep a lot of folks happy (I hope).

    I don't agree with everything he says, but he as a good persona and presence about him, as well for public image and dealing with O/S issues and delegates etc.

    Thats precisely why I dont like him - he is too left to be a Liberal.

    Coincidentally, this was the part I didn't like. Wasn't he the one who said that fiber to node was good enough?

    Maybe look at the definition of what a Liberal actually is, and what the foundations of theLiberal Party actually were.

    He is a true liberal. Not a ultra conservative or neo-conservative.
