The phony blokey backdowns of the Morrison weeks are no consolation.
Oh for the halcyon days when we had a Prime Minister who could argue passionately for something one minute, and argue for the exact opposite the next minute, and do it with such aplomb.
Oh for the time when a Liberal leader could do 17 backflips in 7 months, and still look tasty in a GQ photoshoot.
Oh for a man who could fight passionately for the Republic, fast internet, and climate action, and also against them, without even ruffling his fine tailored suits.
Not that ScoMo has just announced his first of many major backflips, it's clear the Prime Ministerial shilly-shallying will be performed by a man who keeps a rugby league ball in his briefcase just in case of a surprise doorstop interview.
