Mr Scott Morrison, the unexpected winner of a right-wing coup against PM Malcom Turnbull immediately showed what he stood for after he informed the Aussies that one his first tasks as new PM was to invite US President Donald Trump over for a visit.

As spokesman for the new PM stated: "Both underlined the strength and depth of our alliance and the unbreakable friendship between Australia and the United States."

"The Prime Minister invited the President to visit Australia. Both leaders agreed to stay in contact and to meet at an early opportunity.”

Mr Morrison, the evangelical who is leading a right-wing revolt within the liberal party, probably hopes that a good tug to the right will make sure his party can stay in office when Australia holds elections next year.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Congratulations to new Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. There are no greater friends than the United States and Australia!</p>&mdash; Donald J.

Mr Trump confirmed the call and congratulated Mr Morrison in a tweet, saying there are "no greater friends than the United States and Australia."

A lot will now depend on whether the conservatives within the liberal party, who would have liked to see Mr Peter Dutton as Mr Malcolm Turnbull’s replacement, will follow Mr Scott Morrison’s leadership, or will quietly try another revolution.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We&#39;re on your side. <a href="https://t.co/TW2JJLz865">pic.twitter.com/TW2JJLz865</a></p>&mdash; Scott Morrison (@ScottMorrisonMP) <a href="https://twitter.com/ScottMorrisonMP/status/1032935216690544641?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 24, 2018</a></blockquote>

We predict that in case of the latter, the Liberals stand to lose much more. Given the little time remaining to look unified as a party and present a new, more right-wing platform for Australian voters, Mr Morrison better get on with it.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Scott Morrison: New Australian leader is evangelical Christian who turned back migrant boats <a href="https://t.co/HsiUaRuaEf">https://t.co/HsiUaRuaEf</a> <a href="https://t.co/3wQPImEEpT">pic.twitter.com/3wQPImEEpT</a></p>&mdash; The Times of London (@thetimes) <a href="https://twitter.com/thetimes/status/1033076963387342848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 24, 2018</a></blockquote>

The evangelical Christian who once turned back migrant boats may not be the dream man for the job, but given the Australian mood as of late, he might just be the saviour that they need.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I guess a church where they speak in tongues is good practise for politics. <a href="https://t.co/rJCNDoBc2p">https://t.co/rJCNDoBc2p</a></p>&mdash; Dee Madigan (@deemadigan) <a href="https://twitter.com/deemadigan/status/1033167398969344001?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 25, 2018</a></blockquote>

We already wonder whether he will repeat anything like his 2006 stunt. Back then, after taking charge of Tourism Australia, he launched an advertising campaign to lure more international visitors, featuring the model Lara Bingle in a striped bikini asking: “So where the bloody hell are you?”

Morrison was a rather soft turn to the right, But predecessor was as confused as much as he was left... Dutton would have been a more decisive right, More what is needed in the current critical destruction of civilisation by hordes of savages.
