THE Slipper-led revival of Labor's political fortunes hasn't worked and the campaign to depict Tony Abbott as Bluebeard on the Molonglo isn't sticking. Teams of quality journalists taking en masse dictation can't budge the polls because the only people who still believe quality journalists are other quality journalists. Stacked QandA audiences bring a little comfort, but there can be no realistic expectation surly lesbians with HECS debts represent a sufficiently large voting bloc to save our Prime Minister's bacon.
So what tactic can a Prime Minister of no known principles try now? Another about-face, of course!
