Commenting on the story: Party divided as SA Libs ponder second loss in two months

Left, right, whatever. My vote left Morrison when he sat with back turned to the opposition member speaking in the House. Crude and rude. – David Donaldson

The Liberals still don’t get it. They lost the election so badly for two reasons. 1: Morrison was really on the nose, especially to women. 2: The LNP had moved too far to the right from centre.

If Dutton is elected as leader of the Liberal Party, Labor will win big time at the next election as he is even more on the nose than Morrison. – Michael Russell

It seems from the expressed ‘wisdom’ of the more conservative members of the Liberal Party that their team is planning to remain in opposition for the foreseeable future, or possibly become even smaller and irrelevant.

To continue the argument that the fall from favour is the fault of members who incline towards moderate and progressive politics, suggests those members are obstinately retaining beliefs that must be right because grandfather said so and nothing has changed in the last century.

I’ve been voting for over 60 years and failed to support Liberals only twice. In desperation I supported Green because like many others I objected to being treated like a pre-teen child whose views were immature and irrelevant.

When what we want is an intelligent leader for PM, and what we had was an arrogant managing director, it seemed time to take the risk of rebellion.

The real outcome won’t be clear for some time, but it can’t be worse than the immediate past governance. Viva la Revolution! – Tony Cole

Antic’s insistence on boorish tirades to gain attention is a prime example of the behaviour that drove the vote away from the Libs at both the State and Federal levels.

Get off your horse, practice humility, and stop complaining it’s everyone else’s fault – that’s the lesson needed to be learned here. The voters are sick of the entitled and childish antics from those who think themselves above us. – Jacob Hodgman

Commenting on the story: Liberal direction dilemma amid search for leader

Perhaps the  federal Liberals need to ‘divest” from the Nationals. It seems the gap between the country and the city is now just too wide to accomodate the “broad church” that moderates used to talk up.

Taking the whole party further to the right seems to be the reason that are now facing a wipeout in the cities. – Helen Chadwick
