Where men drown thinking they can walk on water

How kind of you to let me  come!

 Saying the right words and wearing the right clothes maketh noone - striving after such things  empties those who invest there . How many changes of clothing before  Malcolm's exposed and outta there ?

Malcolm Turnbull has got where he always wanted to be .
We didn't ask him-- he just took the job so how right is he to assume office ? to talk of honor and humility ?
History of real progress to the best and most livable communities shows us that the only effective way  men can walk where angels fear  to tread is to do it lightly , carefully and with much advice .He's had plenty of years to take advice , but is he there because he thinks he can walk on water and is not afraid - how dangerous is that ?   Haven't seen much of the required humility to date.We  live in hope .

Tony Abbott has been treated badly because the personal attacks  are more a reflection of the unhappy state of mind of the people than anything about him . I can't see why Tony isn't the better leader because he knows about being strong in the face of opposition, totally  unfair criticism and a huge barrage of it.( esp lately )    As for whose best at  consulting - only their wives might know ; what man is not deaf until you shake him ?

What does Malcolm know and will he turn out to be a puppet , a prig or on a personal journey with his own name all over the landscape ?
Humility will take you places where I fear Malcolm has never been - I wish him well none the less . I hope not for the first time in his life , this man whose groomed himself to be popular , will actually say and do things that are not . That s what  thinking caring people want him to do .He can of course take a more popular choice .
That will mean of course that unlike Tony Abbott , he's taken the job,  and not earned it.

I hope for our countries sake,  he doesn't hit the ground with a thud , Good on Tony for trying .

  1. How's he going ? he's using all the right words! What staggers me is not the men moving where angels fear to tread but the hoards of thinking people who think when these people sign an agreement in Paris the world will change . As Einstein and MLK ing observed we the people have a problem that makes both parties unable to see clearly what they are up to .
