I’ve expressed my distaste for Malcolm Turnbull in the past, despite the fact that many here seem to like him – even considering him a fellow libertarian. I’ve yet to see anything that would qualify him as such. Maybe I was harsh – after all, the Environment portfolio is not exactly the best place to display your libertarian credentials.
Alas, as far as I can tell, he isn’t much better as Opposition Leader. His latest call is for the government to guarantee individual bank deposits up to $100,000. (Kevin07 wants to guarantee $20,000). I’m no economist, but it seems to me, that when people are already dumping shares and other investments to convert to cash, that such a scheme would only hasten the exodus. Am I missing something?
Why is it that so many of you like this guy?
