    Sounds to me like our best friends in these three nations are getting a little sick of their conservatives. We will too during the next two years.

    It appears that Abbott’s woes are solely the result of (i) his not actually implementing his conservative promises, and (ii) a knighthood. These hardly seem to warrant a belief that the Aussies are “turning to the Left.”

    Nothing sells to the low information voters like free stuff. Unless it is free stuff paid for by some evil “others’. How else did Greece and Venezuela manage to achieve their economic heights if not through leftist pandering.

      There are many kinds of low-information voters. In America, it’s those who vote for the country to be ruined with high-end tax cuts while their pastors tell them the elections are about abortion.

    Cameron’s biggest problem is UKIP not the leftists, and Abbott’s problems seem to be from a failure to do what he said he would do. In neither case does it look like the leftists are a growing power.
