The Liberal Party is supposed to be the custodian of classical liberalism and conservatism. Malcolm Turnbull is neither. He is a leftist-‘progressive’ who wants to take Australia in the same general philosophical direction as the Labor Party and the Greens.
Below I have produced a meticulously researched timeline, and a series of stand-alone articles, highlighting Turnbull’s left-wing ideological orientation, and his intimate associations with the Labor Party.
I clearly show that Turnbull’s ideology is long-held and deeply-ingrained. Indeed, he has never been anything other than a leftist, and continues to ruthlessly pursue that agenda as Prime Minister.
