NEIL MITCHELL: Why Malcolm Turnbull needs Victoria
Incoming Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will need to get Victorians on side to win the election, Neil Mitchell says.
‘Malcolm Turnbull is very Sydney,’ he said.
‘Victoria is one of the reasons Tony Abbott was dumped.
‘Tony Abbott was seen to be electoral poison in Victoria, Malcolm Turnbull needs Victoria and South Australia in particular.
‘He’s going to have to come to Victoria, he’ll have to negotiate with, I hope, the Andrews government to kick in some money to get them building things we need in Victoria.’
Politics is now officially farcical . People crave stability and leadership .

NEIL MITCHELL ON JULIE BISHOP:
‘Political cockroach, she just keeps surviving while a nuclear holocaust erupts around her.’
‘He’s handled it with dignity, he may be a big winner in this. May be Treasurer.’
