"They have set up kings, but not by me," (Hosea 8:4)
Surely the leadership of a country such as Australia should not be allowed to be obtained by stealth, back-room deals, under the cover of darkness, to avoid public consultation or scrutiny, to prevent the people having a say. Yet that is what has happened. Treachery of the highest order, with smooth attempts at explaining it and justifying it. Can the plotters, any of them, now really be trusted? Leaders need integrity. In his victory speech Turnbull said that his would be a "consultative" government. Really! Were the people consulted before the coup?
