Nationally, I am endorsing the removal of the Liberal/National government of Malcolm Turnbull. I am supporting a government led by the Australian Labor Party with Bill Shorten as Prime Minister.
I also support a significant presence of competent minor parties in the Senate, particularly the Greens, to act as a robust House of Review and to give strong guidance to the government in policy direction.
We're now at the end of week three of the eight-week federal election campaign, and all the body language I see from Turnbull is the same as he has displayed for the last few months beforehand: He looks bored with the Prime Ministership. That "ok I've done this Prime Minister thing, what's next?" languidness.
