Turnbull claims election success, says voters twice as disillusioned

Speaking at a Master Builders Association breakfast this morning, Malcolm Turnbull said those criticising his use of the ABCC as double dissolution trigger are out of touch and weak.

“You know I’m really not sure what all the fuss is about; the result clearly shows people are twice as disillusioned as before we took power.”

“Look, things have been pretty bad since Tony took on the job in 2011 and we’ve done everything we can to continue in that vein.”

“We’ve got free trade agreements sorted, we’ve ditched the Gonski reforms, offended every LGBTI person in the country, and we’re going after Medicare at every opportunity. Not to mention the Unions – we’ve tried really hard to kill off the militant CFMEU and the outcome on Saturday shows ... well we’re getting there, I think. Aren’t we?”

“If people aren’t disillusioned now, just wait until Pauline returns to the Senate. That’s another feather in the cap of our government,” he concluded.
