If you thought that Prime Minister Tony Abbott was bad, it could be about to get a whole lot worse.
(A reminder too that Malcolm Turnbull hasn't even lost his 30th Newspoll in a row yet; but that will come next week)
Abbott was a bumbling idiot. Peter Dutton is actually a smart and conniving political operator who knows what he is doing. I think we can all determine just who is more dangerous.
God help us if Peter Dutton becomes Prime Minister. God, help us.
