This is wonderful.
Defying predictions and doom-sayers, true blue Conservative Tony Abbott has won the leadership of the Liberal Party.
by one vote.
We are not quite sure who to thank for this frabjous event, the soft-liberal-to-the-point of squishiness MPs in the Liberal Party who just could not make up their minds, or the real heroes of the piece, the Liberal Party base.
Ordinary people who called their politicians. Ordinary people who put their wallets away.
Ordinary people who demanded the Party they wanted--that is, one that wasn't Labor's lapdog.
And now they have their man.
God bless the rabble, every one.
